WINNER of GM's prestigious "Top Classical Trio" Rising Star award for 8 YEARS IN A ROW throughout the US and Canada. "Exquisite!" "Amazing" "...brought tears of joy..". That's what people have said about Amethyst trio, a Classical trio & quartet that also plays authentic crossover contemporary styles. Exquisitely lovely trio of harp, violin & cello and a dynamic contemporary/Classical piano trio (violin, cello, piano) that knows how to rock Beethoven and Coldplay. Also winner of "Best of 2015, 2014, 2013 & 2012" and voted "Best of 2011" by Bay Area brides on the Knot's Pick.

Besides concert and orchestral work, we have performed on TV, motion pictures, MTV music videos and our musicians have played with internationally renowned touring artists such as Eric Clapton, Jay-Z, Placido Domingo, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Matthis, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, etc We have also played events for celebrities such as Jason Newsted of Metallica, Neal Shoen of Journey, Chinese film star Xiaoquing Liu, former Indianapolis Colts player Jason Tafrallis and for many events featuring well-known personalities such as astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

We play all the standard wedding classics, so our audio samples here are meant to show you what we offer that other groups do not. Not only are we professional Classical musicians, but also play authentic rock & jazz styles, so we are well-suited to both an elegant wedding ceremony and also a party event where a more lively atmosphere is desired. All our musicians are great improv players, so special requests are not a problem.

We have a top-of-the line Bose sound amplification system for our instruments -so our group can be heard beautifully at outdoors events for up to 500 people - and smaller systems for smaller venues, as well as wireless mics for vows. This should be considered when you are looking at bids. Most Classical groups do not provide amplification. We have pickups in our instruments (including the harp) and have extensive experience with managing our own sound without the need of hiring an outside sound tech. This can be a big cost-saver.

Our musicians have played in symphony halls, outdoors folk & jazz festivals, restaurants, bars, with rock bands, cafes, Las Vegas shows, rallies, and with touring companies and famous classical and pop artists. Mainly, we want to hear YOUR vision of the event, so that we can make that happen. Getting the music right is essential to your event. Our attitude is that we are there for you and we want to work with you to make your vision a reality, including special musical requests.

We also offer a spectacular package of string quartet plus harp or piano. In large elegant venues like the Rotunda at San Francisco City Hall, this quintet provides very large sound cover and is visually stunning.

**Amethyst Trio is a FULLY-INSURED vendor. This is a requirement for venues such as at SF City Hall, Museums, large hotels and many wineries and other event venues. Documentation provided upon request.** Please find out about your venue's insurance requirement before you book a musical group.

Amethyst Trio was amazing!!! We hired them for our wedding at Thomas Fogarty Winery and we could not have been happier. Their music was beautiful, they were easy to work with, and played exactly what we asked for. We have received non-stop compliments from our guests raving about their music. Definitely would recommend this trio!!!

The Amethyst Trop played for our wedding October 18, 2015. It was perfect. Everyone commented how exceptional the music was. I worked with Lara to compile a list of classical and soft music for our prelude, processionals, recessional, and cocktail hour, and they performed a solo during the service. Lovely. They have an amazing repertoire of instrumentals, both classical and modern. I would give the very highest recommendation for others to consider this excellent group. Your ceremony is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, so I'd encourage you to choose only the best. - Sandy R
