$200 - $2000 per event
Often when people think of using string musicians for their event, they think of a string quartet first. But a trio is a great alternative: Same full sound, fewer people to organize and pay.

The Helvetica String Trio specializes in providing live entertainment for weddings, private parties, and special events. We cover a wide range of styles, and would love to be a part of your special occasion.

We have a versatile and varied repertoire consisting of classical, folk, rock, pop, and many other genres. We are able to play anything from the Wedding March to a cover of your favorite song.

Pre-event logistics were simple and speedy. They arrived at the event early and set themselves up without fuss, leaving me to manage other aspects of the event. A number of the guests commented on them positively. The song list they played was perfect and set a lovely atmosphere for the drinks reception. Will definitely book again and would recommend. Thank you!

Portia was great! She followed up every single time we emailed each other and their group played the music perfectly! I didn't know what type of music to choose at all and Portia was very patient with me by sending me samples and had extremely good recommendations. I had a very blessed day at my wedding ceremony, their music made a big difference, I would recommend this group anytime.

I contacted Helvetica String Trio literally 2 weeks before my wedding! They were extremely accommodating. We hired them to play during our cocktail hour. They even did a last minute arrangement to our wedding song John Legend "All of Me" the Lindsey Stirling version. It was beautiful. They were prompt and professional. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!
