The string trio ensemble is our most popular ensemble. It is a flexible ensemble comprising of 2 violins and 1 cello, or 1 violin, 1 viola and 1 cello, suitable for all venues and spaces. The sound of the string trio is similar to the string quartet, although with one less instrument (usually the viola) is slightly softer, however usually more than adequate for weddings and receptions. The trio is well suited for performing contemporary songs and most classical pieces.
