General repertoire (trio)

_____________

Here you will find our collection of general repertoire arranged specifically for string trio (two violins plus cello). These pieces work well for playing at wedding receptions, or corporate functions, etc. There is quite a good selection here, including baroque and classical music, some late 19th/early 20th century pieces, and some jazz standards (please note, most of the selections for trio are totally different from our quartet repertoire). We do recommend the full quartet, both in terms of sound, as well as variety of music selection, though the trio can be a very nice option for a smaller venue, or events on a smaller budget.
