Highly Experienced Musicians

Innocenti Strings music ensembles include some of the most trusted and well-respected live musicians in the Detroit area. Beyond that, our mission is to make the whole experience as easy and enjoyable as possible for you, so we’ll help you with everything from choosing your ensemble to selecting your music to setting everything up on the day of your event.

Where We’ll Travel

Wondering how far we’ll travel? If the destination is less than 25 miles away from downtown Detroit (as determined by Google Maps), it will be free. For destinations 25+ miles away, there will be a small fee per musician.
 
Though typically the farthest we’ll travel is 2-3 hours each way in a day, we have an incredible network of musicians in cities across the country, so we can help connect you with one of our ensembles that’s closest to you.

OUR PACKAGES

Our most commonly chosen packages are included below. Since pricing is based on the location and scope of the event, we’d be happy to provide you with a quote based on what you’re looking for. Simply fill out the form at the bottom of the page to get started.
