The Agate String Trio creates a unique musical experience for your event. With over 30 years of combined performing experience, we specialize in a variety of styles, from Bach to rock, jazz to bluegrass, latin to klezmer. We can arrange most any musical selection you request, creating an elegant classical atmosphere for a wedding ceremony or jazzing up a swinging cocktail party. Our members have performed regularly at New York's finest venues including the Ritz Carlton, the Waldorf, Riverside Park and the Pierre.
Formed in 2008, the Agate String Trio consists of Helen Yee, violin, Leanne Darling, viola, and Loren Dempster on cello. We were trained in the finest music schools including the Eastman School of Music, San Francisco Conservatory, and Yale University. We have all studied jazz, composition, and world music. Although the base of our training is in classical music, we are open to performing most any style. We can cater your event to your musical tastes. We also are able to amplify our instruments and create various rock effects.
We are available as a string trio, duo, solo, or quartet. We are happy to come to you in New Jersey, Westchester, Long Island or Connecticut.
