Bach to Bacharach

Bach to Bacharach String Trio is a professional group based in the West Michigan area. In September of 2006, we were the featured artists in the New Buffalo Performing Artists Series and in February of 2007, we were featured in the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra’s “Around Town” series. Our repertoire includes a wide variety of unique arrangements encompassing all musical periods, from the baroque era to modern popular music. We have performed at numerous weddings, receptions, parties and special events.

For an additional fee the group can also perform as a quartet. We look forward to working with you
