Our Story

A graduate student of the College of Charleston in 2005, cellist, Andrew Mille created our very first website. Intended to promote our string quartet, trio and duet, we were then known as Classical Charleston. There have been many websites since, and our team and friendships continue to grow.

Our lead violinist Tomas Jakubek is now adjunct violin faculty at CofC. He also performs regularly with the Charleston Symphony, along with the vast majority of our string instrumentalists.

Thanks to our roots at CofC, our friends and colleagues also include musicians who studied in the Jazz Program — artists whose contributions have, ever since, been integral to Charleston’s growing jazz scene.

In 17-plus years we’ve bridged the gap between our musicians, and the many event planners and clients we work with, including area DJs, Specialty and Variety Bands, as well as other service providers we’ve come to know and respect. In 2021, Arlene Felipe became the latest addition to the CE team. In addition to her marketing and social media expertise, she has been instrumental in sourcing talent across the Southeast, and beyond.

We are current members of the Charleston Visitor Bureau’s – Travel Council, a network of travel/hospitality industry professionals in the Charleston metro area.
