Welcome to our new website! We are excited about the fresh new look and cutting edge audio features created for us by King Design in Jenkintown, PA. Our new logo and the “Fairmount Strings” branding bring together our original ensemble, “Fairmount String Quartet,” and its outgrowth, “Fairmount Chamber Ensemble,” under one umbrella. We love Chris’ design of our new logo, the brighter colors and the lighter look; it so much better reflects who we are.
We had a great time working with the team at King Design. There were Monday afternoons at Starbucks, writing copy and organizing the site with our project strategist Elizabeth; lots of laughter during the photo shoots with Mike and Chris; an impromptu concert in the KD office; even a birthday party for Fairmount Strings co-principal Taia Harlos. We look forward to posting some of the more informal and amusing pics on our Facebook page.
Bob, on the technical design team at King Design, created a brilliant playlist audio feature on the Listen page - it enables you to assemble the music for your event and then share your playlist with your partner, your planner, your parents! As the site continues to grow we will be adding more audio files to represent the myriad of genres in which the Fairmount Strings shine. So come back and visit us again. Check out our public events, book your event, read our musings and enjoy the music!
