A stylish, modern, and innovative take on classical music. Quartetto Solo is a unique and exciting concept that is over a decade in the making. A single, experienced classically-trained violinist performs along with virtuoso 'virtual musicians' to create the elegant sound of a full string quartet. You hear four musicians, but only pay for one. This creation provides the elegance of live classical chamber music from a single violinist.
Upbeat and modern, or elegantly classical. We are the perfect choice for your event.
Although I have decades of experience with Chicago weddings and Events, Quartetto Solo is a new project that just now opened a Yelp page and joined Gigmasters. Please see my site for testimonials (easy to find on any search engine). You can also see my reviews at my other gigmasters violin profile (just search gigmasters for Chicago violinists.)
I have led two highly successful string groups in Chicago for almost two decades, The Amadeus Chamber Ensemble, and currently String Theory Chamber Ensemble, Chicago's most popular string ensemble. I have received a Bachelor's degree in music performance from Chicago's prestigious Roosevelt University, and have played with many of Chicagoland's finest orchestras. Quartetto Solo is my latest creation, my solo project. I have performed for over 700 Chicago weddings, it is something I truly love and am very passionate about. Performing for a couple's most special day is magical, and quite an honor.
What I do is unique. There are many other musical ensembles that offer a solo string player for your wedding. The violin is truly a beautiful instrument, but a solo violin on its own is not a full or loud enough sound to satisfy (or be appropriate for) most wedding ceremonies, and definitely not cocktail or dinner hours. If you're thinking of hiring an actual string quartet, make sure to ask if they will be using an amplification system worthy of covering your event's space, and all of your attendees. One of the most common complaints I hear about live strings is that the attendees could not hear their music unless they were standing right next to them. This is never an issue with Quartetto Solo. When you hire us, you get many different ensembles in one elegant package – String Quartet, Piano Trio, Violin & Piano, Violin & Guitar, etc.. I can play (and provide microphones for your event) anywhere, even where there is no electrical power handy. The reason for this is, among my considerable arsenal of sound amplification gear, I own the highest quality battery powered PA systems and equipment. So no matter where you're getting married, even if that is in the middle of a forest, a gorgeous park, or on the beach, I'll be there to provide the perfect mood for your special day.
