Fairmount Strings

Events

Fairmount Strings provides the ideal atmosphere for events as diverse as corporate gatherings, holiday parties, anniversary celebrations, and memorial services. Whether you prefer to make all the musical choices or put the set list completely in our hands, our principal members will offer the right amount of guidance.

In addition to musical excellence, you can count on the professionalism of our musicians. Their experience means that they are sensitive and responsive to the mood of the crowd, so that every piece of music is perfectly suited to the moment.

The range of our musicians provides you with the customization and flexibility that you expect. A string quartet — two violins, one viola, and cello — offers a large and versatile repertoire. The rich sound and diversity of selection makes this group our most popular choice. For a more intimate setting, a string trio can be the perfect fit for events that call for classical music. A duo, such as flute and harp or violin and guitar provide another layer of flexibility in a space that is equipped for amplification. On the other end of the spectrum, a full orchestra provides a lush sound that is not easily forgotten. Whatever your needs, our ultimate goal is to ensure that your event is flawless.
