Members of THE QUARTETTE ACCORD, THE ACCORD TRIO, and THE ACCORD DUO belong to the St. Louis Musicians' Association (local union), and therefore are trained professional free-lance musicians. Our principal violinist and business manager, for example, boasts study with no less than three members of our very own St. Louis Symphony orchestra, as well as four years of study during college years with the concertmaster of the Indianapolis Symphony.
THE QUARTETTE ACCORD itself was established in 1991. However, a good number of the member players have been performing over a much longer period of time. Having been involved in a wide range of musical performance opportunities throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area, we are able to offer you a very high performance level for your wedding or special event.
Organizations/Events for which our members have performed include: Gateway Festival Orchestra, Ballet Orchestra of St. Louis, Muny orchestra at Forest Park, Bach Society of St. Louis, Masterworks Chorale of Belleville IL, Papal mass orchestra 01/99, Pavarotti concert at Kiel Center 02/99, the annual Veiled Prophet Ball, and back-up orchestra for artists such as The Moody Blues, Ray Charles, Manhattan Transfer, and Tony Bennett.
In addition, many of our players teach privately or in public schools and/or perform in community orchestras such as the St. Louis Philharmonic and the Webster Symphony Orchestra.
