String Ensembles add ELEGANCE to any wedding ceremony, party or reception, whether you have five or five hundred guests.   When alternating with a band or DJ, my classical Strings transform into a Strolling String Ensemble performing a wide range of popular musical selections and special requests from guests. Selections may include not only show tunes and standards, but ethnic selections as well.

Strolling Violin and String Ensembles are an increasingly popular alternative to the usual band or DJ music played during the cocktail/dinner hour. Live violins create an elegant backdrop for conversation while contributing to the ambiance.  Allen's Strolling Violin & String Ensembles provide you with two uniquely different musical groups for the price of one. Your options are almost limitless, whether it be one violin or a dozen musicians.  Ensembles may also include other instruments.  Please book early to ensure availability
