Combining musical excellence with experience and professionalism, Fairmount Strings provides the perfect atmosphere for events as diverse as corporate gatherings and conferences, holiday parties, and birthday or anniversary celebrations.
We offer a number of ensembles to suit a variety of tastes. The string quartet is our most popular and versatile option, offering a full rich sound and a large, diverse repertoire. For more intimate settings, a string trio has a lighter sound and exclusively classical repertoire. Duos such as flute/harp or violin/piano provide another quality of sound for spaces equipped for amplification. On the other end of the spectrum, a full orchestra provides an unforgettably lush sound for large spaces.
Our team works with your event planners and venue to ensure a seamless synergy. We will consult with you to help you select the music for your event, or you can choose to put the setlist entirely in our hands. Our musicians’ experience makes them responsive to the mood of the crowd so that every piece of music is ideally suited to the moment. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the music for your event is flawless.
