Naples, Fort Myers, Sanibel & Captiva Islands, and Marco Island. Locations beyond
the greater Naples - Ft. Myers area may be available by special arrangement.

with the Naples Philharmonic, Southwest Florida Symphony, and Opera Naples. As orchestral
musicians we perform over 120 concerts each season to critical acclaim and enthusiastic
audiences. In these orchestras we play everything from Brahms to Broadway, and Led
Zeppelin too. The best part is that we bring these same talents and ranges of styles
to your event!
Our musicians love what they do and are in demand for many music festivals and chamber
groups across the country. We have performed with such great talents as Kathleen
Battle, New York City Opera, Harry Connick Jr., Andrea Bocelli, Quincy Jones, ABBA,
Trans-Siberian Railroad, and Marvin Hamlisch.
