The ARIOSO STRING QUARTET is based in the Philadelphia area which includes the Main Line, Southern New Jersey, and the greater Delaware Valley region. In many cases the musicians are able to travel up to 75 miles from Philadelphia. The group, formed in 1989, consists of two violins, viola and cello. The musicians are seasoned professional performers and teachers, among the highest caliber in the area.
We also can provide you with a string trio (violin, viola and cello), and you may substitute one violin in either group with a flute at no additional cost. The trio prices will be lower than the those of the quartet. We will tailor the group to your needs.
ARIOSO is available to play weddings, parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and concerts at any location. Our dress is formal black attire: long black dresses for women and tuxedos for men.
The locations we have played at include Greystone Hall, Merion Tribute House, the Four Seasons Hotel, the Ritz Carlton Hotel (now St. Regis), the DuPont Country Club, Philadelphia Cricket Club, Sugarloaf, Philopatrian Society, among many others.
We are experts at playing anything from a full Catholic Mass (with or without singers) to jazz, and have played ceremonies of every denomination.
Our repertoire includes:
The musicians in the quartet presently play with the Opera Company of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Ballet, Vox Ama Deus, the Bach Choir of Bethlehem and many other groups.
We will gladly help you in choosing the right music for your special event, and will arrange music which is not in our extensive repertoire. We can play almost any type of music, including the standard classical repertoire, show tunes, light popular, rags, waltzes, Italian songs, opera excerpts, and Jewish songs.
To listen to some examples of our work, please look at our music samples.
Any questions or comments you may have can be directed to us via email, email@example.com, or by phone, at (610) 558-6252.
