Our musicians all have degrees in music and have performed for decades in orchestras, chamber ensembles, studio recordings and at special events. Our musicians have performed all over the world and on some of the biggest, most well known concert stages and arenas.  You will love our top notch, engaging, dynamic performances and attention to detail. Our reviews truly speak for themselves. We offer both the traditional, classical sound of strings and also engaging modern electric instrument options as well.  Check out what our clients have said about Arioso Strings on Gig Salad, The Wedding Channel, Wedding Wire and Best Minneapolis Weddings!
