Details and Travel
The Sustainable Choice
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.
Where We’ll Travel
Wondering how far we’ll travel? If the destination is less than 25 miles away from downtown Pittsburgh (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.

Hear From Our Clients
“It was always a dream of mine to have a string trio or quartet provide music at our wedding and I’m so glad I found Innocenti Strings here in Pittsburgh!
First, I knew that I wanted only contemporary music, and they have an extensive repertoire of both classical and contemporary pieces. The repertoire document they sent to me was probably 15 pages at least! Second, I felt that their pricing was reasonable and comparable to other string musician groups in the area. Third, they also had great online reviews!”

“There is nothing more beautiful than the sounds of a string quartet! This group did a wonderful job! They played before and during the ceremony, and then an hour of music during cocktails. I'm the mother of the groom, and this was part of my gift to the kids. It was just lovely, and I highly recommend Innocenti Strings.”
