When picking out your music we will be as flexible as possible to give you exactly the group you are looking for. Caprice has played engagements ranging from single/solo musicians to chamber orchestras. We can put together a great set of musicians for whatever size group fits your desire.

Our Repertoire

Caprice Strings has been performing special events and weddings in Southern California for over 20 years, and we
rarely have requests that we can’t meet. If there is a song you want that is not in our current repertoire, we are happy to try and arrange most pieces for the ensemble for a nominal charge. If you don’t see a song you really desire on our song lists please check with Francesca , we may have it in our extended collection, or, be able to create a special arrangement just for your celebration. Depending on the selection and its place in your event, often there is no charge at all!
