In times of loss music comforts, heals, and reminds us of those dear to us. Whether serene, deeply spiritual, or joyful, it speaks where words fail. Fairmount Strings is humbled and honored when asked to memorialize someone dear through our music.
We will listen carefully to what you want to express through the music and guide you to the selections and ensemble that will create a fitting tribute. In addition to providing instrumentalists, we can also provide solo vocalists or small vocal ensembles.

What is your policy on playing outdoors?
Due to the delicate nature of our instruments, if an engagement is to be outdoors, the area we are in must be dry and well shaded, with temperature between 65 and 85 F. Please be sure to take the proper precautions for outdoor services, as we will not ask our musicians to subject their valuable instruments to conditions that will damage them.
What is your dress code?
Ladies wear concert black and men wear either tuxedos or suit and tie, as the occasion dictates.
Do the musicians take breaks?
- One hour engagement — no break
- Two hour engagement — One 15 minute break
- Three hour engagement — Two 15 minute breaks
- Four hour engagement — Three 20 minute breaks
Please note that breaks will not be taken during wedding ceremonies or religious services.
