Looking to hire a string quartet for your event? You’ve come to the right place!

Our music ensembles are based locally, so our musicians know and love Houston as much as you do. As a city with a lively music scene and people who are all about having a good time, we know how to set the tone to make sure you and your guests have the best experience possible. In fact, clients have rated us as “excellent” 99% of the time—something we’re incredibly proud of. Whether your event is in the city or the suburbs, we’d love to be part of your milestone moment. We’ve been thrilled to play in venues all throughout the Houston area.

The Music You Know and Love

Whether you’re looking for the songs you love to sing along to or the ones you’ve always dreamed of walking down the aisle to, we can play them all! With an extensive, genre-spanning music library, we can perform everything from modern pop hits to classical favorites.

Highly Experienced Musicians

Innocenti Strings music ensembles include some of the most trusted and well-respected live musicians in the Houston 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 Houston (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.
