A number of local musicians make up our professional ensembles, including area friends, professionals and students from CSUS, UOP,and  UC Davis. In addition to playing in any string configuration from solo to string orchestra, we also work with brass and wind players, as well as singers, and can provide you with recommendations for your particular needs.
