Christmas/Holiday repertoire (trio)

On this page, you will find our Christmas/holiday repertoire arranged specifically for trio. When playing as a trio, we are two violins plus cello. If hiring us to play for a Christmas/Holiday reception, we definitely recommend hiring us as a full quartet- we do have much more repertoire selection available for quartet. A trio can be nice for intimate venues though, or for events on a smaller budget. When playing for Christmas/holiday events, we can always mix it up by adding in some of our general repertoire as well.
