Parties And Events

Immerse Your Senses

A five-concert chamber music series featuring each of the five senses. This series is popular with concerts with 50-200 guests and can accommodate a pre- or post-concert dinner. Our musicians curate the concerts around an interactive experience.



Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions

We can help you find the perfect ensemble for your special day with soloists, trios, quartets, or even an entire orchestra! We’ll help curate the music – whether it’s the classic Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major, or a classical music arrangement of your favorite song for the first dance.

Corporate Events and Workshops
