Our music ensembles are based locally, so our musicians know and love DC and Baltimore as much as you do. As cities with lively, diverse music scenes 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 DC and Baltimore, such as the House of Sweden in Georgetown, Cedar Knoll Restaurant in Alexandria, VA, and The Castle at Maryvale  in Brooklandville, MD, to name a few. Planning something a little farther away? From Gaithersburg to Annaoplis to Fredericksburg, we’d be delighted to be part of your wedding or special occasion in the surrounding DC and Baltimore metro areas.

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 Dallas 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 Dallas (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.

Planning a DC/Baltimore wedding?

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.

“We had Innocenti Strings play our wedding and they were awesome! The musicians were super friendly, easy going, and adaptable to the situation/schedule as needed. They played some songs that we specifically chose mixed in some other songs at their discretion to fill in and it all came out wonderfully well. These guys are top notch!”
