4 months, 2 weeks ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings performs the ceremony at a little Catholic Church and later for the reception at a separate location.

We were greeted by an incredibly nice Father who insisted on helping us with our equipment up stairs and even later to the car! The bride, groom and guests all had a wonderful time during the ceremony as while it was formal, there was also some informality in guests being able to speak and react. […]

4 months, 3 weeks ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings performs as an orchestra at the Levi Stadium in Santa Clara

How many can say that they’ve performed at the Levi Stadium, and on the green too? It was a very unusual assignment as a last minute request to put together a 12 piece orchestra. The occasion was a surprise for a very lucky recipient. Imagine that one company rented out the whole stadium for the […]

4 months, 3 weeks ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings performs at the Kohl Mansion

We have performed at dozens of mansions. This mansion has a nice history spanning over 100 years and at one point in it’s history included  a personal 150,000 gallon reservoir on a 40 acre site. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places. Our performance as a string trio was actually a second sister’s wedding […]

5 months ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings performs north of the Bay Area

Our performance this last weekend took us up farther north than usual. I really enjoy north of San Francisco. It’s less crowded and more green and the trees and all of the landscape very different. Mid-October in Northern CA is one of the most beautiful times of the year for the area. Still warm and […]

So this was a quaint, small wedding. The couple was young and so happy to finally have the big day upon them! I liked the fall leaves that were spread along the sides of the aisle. These two autumn-hued trees added a warm glow to the ceremony room. Upon leaving we were greeted outside with […]

5 months ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings performs for a corporate event

We’ve performed hundreds of corporate events. Our assignment was mostly cover songs, performing as a string trio for Silicon Valley techs. The weather was perfect and our music brought most of the guests outside to enjoy the atmosphere as we played for the entire event.

5 months, 1 week ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings is getting a bug for a get-away!

I try to make it there once every year or so. It’s been over a year and I have to admit that the islands are calling for me. But way too busy now to sneak away. Here’s three pics from my visit last year. I think the knowing one will be getting away is almost […]

5 months, 1 week ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings’ first performance at the beautiful Charles Krug Winery

Perfect location for a wedding. Huge grassy area with more trees than I’ve ever seen in a wedding venue. This building is more magnificent in person and was built in 1881. That’s pretty old in California by any standards! I enjoyed the property and really only saw a little, but the little I saw was […]

5 months, 1 week ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings performs at the Mt. Terrace

Here once again. A very favorite location with a wonderful view of the East Bay Area. But today I thought to show a picture of Alice’s restaurant directly across the street. It’s famous for its location and interesting menu bu not the Alice’s Restaurant of Arco Guthrie fame. Definitely a fun place if you’re in […]

5 months, 1 week ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings is once again in beautiful Sunol

Our strings rang out ‘loud and clear’– well, not too loud, you know! But the fall air adds extra crispness to the sound of live strings and the compliments, while good anytime of the year, let us know that we’re not imaging it! Even the photography is special during the fall and winter months. We’re […]
