Since founding Empyreal Strings in 1993, I have prided myself on choosing musicians and performers who are not only technically proficient, but who are as passionate about what they do as I am.
By staying true to this philosophy, I have watched the company grow from representing just one classical string quartet to offering a 30-plus member orchestra, a hopping 10-15 pieces dance band, jazz ensembles, a riveting electric violins “Extravaganza Show”, ballroom dancers, a gypsy and klezmer show, club-quality DJs, and much, much more.
Empyreal band members have appeared in concert with Solomon Burke, Bo Diddley, Gloria Gaynor, Ben E. King, Santana, Percy Sledge, Martha Reeves, The Tokens, among many others. Empyreal classical and jazz string ensembles are led by conservatory-trained professionals with years of experience, complemented by talented younger players, giving each Empyreal Ensemble its characteristic energy and enthusiasm.
