What to Expect
Garden Strings is a versatile musical group. We play all types of music from classical favorites to contemporary pops. If you don’t see the song you are looking for listed, please let me know! Many songs can be arranged for string ensembles and I am happy to create a custom arrangement for you.
Even though Garden Strings was officially formed in 2004, three of us have been playing chamber music together since 1984! We are a group of friends who enjoy playing music together, exploring new arrangements and musical styles, and want to share our music with others. Each of us has traveled and performed internationally, teach music, and perform in orchestras from San Francisco to Walnut Creek to Napa. Almost every weekend, you will find us performing for Bay Area weddings, parties, and special events. We look forward to sharing our music with you!
