Parkwest String Ensembles

String Quartet

Our most popular ensemble. The quartet has the most extensive repertoire from classical, pop and classic rock.  The quartet's sound is equally suited to a small garden or a large church wedding.  The string quartet is a perfect choice for ceremonies and receptions.

 

 

String Duo

The string duo is our smallest ensemble. It is perfect for intimate gatherings and also works well for indoor ceremonies. While the string duo repertoire is limited, many selections can be adapted to provide a light and beautiful sound.
