"Arcobaleno Strings...was simply sophisticated, elegant." 
Elodie & Neil


Violin - Fike PhotographyTraditional Quartet (2 violins, viola & cello): There is something extra special about having a traditional quartet.  The sound is very full and you know you’ve made the most classic choice.  Our quartet is specialized in classical along with a diverse and entertaining collection of non-classical for your cocktail hour, reception or other event.  
Genres:  Classical, Waltzes, Ragtime, Tangos, Old-Time Pop, Irish Tunes, Christian, Jazz Standards, Love Songs, Classic Rock, Contemporary, Movie & TV Theme Songs and Christmas & Holiday Music

Cello Quartet (4 cellos):  By far the most unique choice!  No one will quickly forget having seen and heard the sound of four gorgeous cellos.  This is the “way-too-cool” option.  
Genres: Strictly light classical

String Trio (2 violins & cello):  This is our most requested and also most versatile group with the largest repertoire. 
Genres:   Classical, Waltzes, Ragtime, Tangos, Fiddle Tunes, Old-Time Pop, Irish Tunes, Christian, Jewish, Opera Favorites, Jazz Standards, Old Love Songs, Classic Rock, Contemporary, Movie & TV Theme Songs, Christmas & Holiday Music 

Piano Trio (violin, cello and piano):  This is especially nice if you have a quality piano onsite.  The piano is such a great contrast to the singing quality of the violin with the cello adding extra rhythm, bass and harmony.  A very entertaining choice. 
Genres:  All the same choices as our String Trio except that we don’t offer Contemporary or Classic Rock.

The Amaris Duo (cello & harp):  We have a one of a kind sound.  The warm sounds of the cello are a perfect compliment to the rippling tones of the harp.  Although we have the most desired classical choices, we have a fabulous selection of popular music for cocktail hour to get your party started.  Learn more about this duo here:  http://www.soloharp.com/cello-duo  Otherwise please contact harpist Susan Haas directly for rates and availability: susan@soloharp.com or cell 253.222.3267
Genres: Classical, Contemporary, Oldies & Classic Rock, Jazz Standards

Cello/Piano Duo:  If you have a piano on-site, this is a fantastic duo option.  The cello offers an expressive voice for the melody while the piano offers a very full accompaniment.  We have a very large selection of classical repertoire as well as a wonderful collection of non-classical as well.  Just ask to see the list.
Genres: Classical, Jazz Standards, Contemporary, Oldies & Classic Rock, Beatles, Sacred/Spiritual/Jewish, Irish Dances, Christmas/Holiday
 
Violin/Cello Duo:  If a duo fits your budget best, this is the most traditional string option.  The contrast of the higher and lower ranges of the violin and cello makes a nice pair with a soothing sound. 
Genres: Classical, Waltzes, Fiddle Tunes, Sacred/Spiritual, Italian Folk Songs, Jazz Standards, Contemporary, Oldies & Classic Rock, Irish Dances, Ragtime, Gilbert & Sullivan, Classic Country and Christmas/Holiday.

Bossa Nova Duo:  What is Bossa Nova?  Think "hot summer in Brazil"...jazzy, samba-like music.  It's not meant to be danced to, but you'll find yourself swaying to it.  It was born in the late fifties on the beaches of Brazil.  The cool, relaxing sounds of the Bossa Nova are for warm conversations.  This cello/guitar duo makes your event extra suave.  Great for cocktail receptions.  For a wedding, pair with solo cello for a classical ceremony.
Genres: Strictly Bossa Nova and other Brazilian rhythms.

Solo Cello:  Simple, yet elegant.  Most appropriate for smaller gatherings.  (Click here for news video with our cellist Nicole.)
Genres: Classical, Sacred/Spiritual
