Appassionata Strings

Comprised of experienced, professional string players, The Appassionata String Ensembles have been performing in various forms around Greater Cleveland since 1998. They are in demand for good reason – the highest quality performance – both musically and professionally.

These talented musicians boast an impressive collective pedigree, including advanced degrees from the Eastman School of Music, the Juilliard School of Music, the Cleveland Institute of Music, Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and Indiana University’s Conservatory of Music.

Performance experience, however, is what sets the Appassionata String Ensembles apart. The members embrace many musical styles, having performed locally, regionally, and nationally with groups including the Sarasota Opera, the San Francisco Symphony, the San Jose Symphony, Rod Stewart, Roberta Flack, the Tanglewood Orchestra, the Grand Teton Festival, Don Henley, Sarah Brightman, Johnny Mathis, the Akron Symphony, {red} an orchestra, Smokey Robinson, the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, Josh Groban, the Cleveland Opera, and many others.

If beautiful music is important to your event, request The Appassionata String Ensembles. They can also provide trumpet, flute, oboe, piano, and organ if you desire.

  • Wonderful Experience and Amazing Quartet

    We thoroughly enjoyed working with the Appassionata String Quartet for our September 2nd wedding. Leah was easy to communicate with and helped us select some lovely and timeless classical pieces for our wedding. The quartet was flawless during the ceremony itself (e.g. changing music for different sections of the wedding party, a musical interlude prior to saying our vows) and our guests raved about the music they played during cocktail hour as well. We highly recommend them!

    From beginning to end, the music at our wedding was PERFECT! We were lucky enough to have Appassionata Strings for the ceremony and The Orchestra for the reception! Everyone had a blast and it was no doubt due to the fabulous music. Thank you!!!

    From the first phone call requesting a DJ and string quartet for our wedding to the end of our wedding night, working with Jerry Bruno Productions and our selected vendors (DJ Michael Alexanderand Appassionata Strings) was a pleasure. We planned our wedding long distance and Jerry Bruno Productions made the whole process seamless. We’ve already had requests from some of the guests for the names of our DJ and strings so they can use them in other events.

    The Appassionata Strings quartet literally took my breath away. We were seated in front of them on the altar and when they began playing, in harmony, with the cantor I was moved to tears. The majority of my night was filled with compliments about the quartet and how beautiful they made the ceremony. I was more than satisfied. They made my ceremony a dream come true.

    Having Appassionata play for my daughter’s wedding ceremony was one of the best decisions I made for that important day! Donna was very helpful in the selection of the music and she was also very receptive to working with some of my requests. The extensive training of these musicians was obvious-every note was beautifully played.

    Just wanted to say what a wonderful experience it has been to work with the Backstreet DJs and the Appassionata Strings. Both teams were a pleasure to work with and made a special day even more outstanding.
