FEATURED ARTISTS

Highly Experienced Musicians

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

We’d be honored to be part of your big day! We can also play for any and every kind of special event, including anniversaries, birthday parties, corporate functions, holiday gatherings, and bar and bat mitzvahs. See our Wedding and Special Events pages to learn more.
