Where We’ll Travel
Wondering how far we’ll travel? If the destination is less than 25 miles away from downtown Kansas City (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 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.
Sustainability is everything these days, and that applies to music, too. Our string ensembles are based locally, so in most instances, our musicians won’t have to travel far. In addition, our instruments are made of real wood so they create rich, beautiful sounds acoustically, without having to use power. That means overall, we’ll have very little environmental impact on your big day.
