Our Story

Our beginnings were as graduate students in the College of Charleston Music Department, where several of our lead string musicians studied classical performance together circa 2005.

Cellist, Andrew Mille created a website for our first quartet, string trio and duet, in 2007. Our string ensembles were named 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 include musicians who studied in the Jazz Program — artists whose contributions have, ever since, been integral to Charleston’s growing jazz scene.

In 15-plus years we’ve bridged the gap between our musicians, and the many event planners and clients we work with, including area DJs, Bands, and other service providers we’ve come to know and respect, as well.
