What is a string trio?
A string trio typically consists of violin, viola, and cello. The Watercress Trio can easily become The Watercress Quartet or the Watercress Duo. We enjoy inviting a colleague to become a full quartet (2 violins, 1 viola, 1 cello), or we can pair down and perform beautiful duets (violin & violin, violin & viola, violin & cello, etc). We are happy to consult with you to find the right instrument combination for your event.
How do I pick music?
We can help you! Write to us and explain the type of mood you’re hoping to accomplish in your event. A member of The Watercress Trio will work with you to select music that perfectly accents the mood of your event. We offer a wide range in styles within our repertoire to ensure we can provide the perfect type of music for any special occasion.
Do you play outdoors?
If your event is outdoors, we just ask to be under a covered area at least 8’ X 8’ in case of inclement weather. Extreme heat, cold, and moisture can be extremely dangerous to our instruments, so it’s always preferred to have a contingency plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate.
Does The Watercress Trio play at events outside the Twin Cities metropolitan area?
We are happy to drive outside the Twin Cities metro area. Any event outside the metro area will be subject to an additional fee ($0.55 per mile).
We have a vocalist/instrumentalist performing. Can the trio accompany them?
We really enjoy collaborating with other musicians at an event. If you would like us to handle the details, we are happy to contact Guest Artists we have previously worked with to check their availability. We also often collaborate with friends and family of the wedding party. Please contact us for details.
