Welcome to The Giovanni Strings!
In today’s ever more “virtual” world, live music played by a professional string ensemble at your event really makes the day memorable for you and your guests. We’ve specialized in event music since 2005 and would love the chance to bring our unique sound to your wedding, ceremony, graduation, birthday party, corporate, or holiday event. Above all else, we are here for you!
Have a special request or specific wedding ceremony music in mind? Let us help you make everything just the way you want it. We specialize in making your music as unique and one-of-a kind as you are.
Our vast library of songs is growing all the time and covers everything from Bach to the Beatles and Tchaikovsky to Taylor Swift. We’ve even got some Ed Sheerhan, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, David Bowie, ELO, Metallica, Queen, and Led Zepplin, including arrangements by the Vitamin String Quartet (think Bridgerton!) for good measure. Recently added are songs from Sam Mendez, the BeeGees, Fleetwood Mac, and music from the soundtracks to Star Wars and Star Trek. And of course we have timeless classics like At Last as performed by Etta James; All You Need is Love by The Beatles, as used in the Movie Love Actually; and Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen.
The Giovanni Strings have provided music for many Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Santa Fe, Bernalillo, Algodones, Los Alamos, Taos, and other New Mexico events including at the Museum of Art and the Old Town Gazebo. We’ve also performed at Albuquerque the Magazine’s Best of the City event three years in a row. We love playing at the top New Mexico locations like La Fonda on the Plaza, Four Seasons Rancho Encantado Resort, Bishop’s Lodge, Los Poblanos Inn & Spa, Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town, Loretto Chapel, Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort, Sandia Casino, The Stakeout in Taos, and so many more.
We’ve collaborated with Dust City Opera for their Alien Summer Album Release performance at the renovated Historic Lobo Theater and more recently for the AMP Concerts event Sadness, Madness and Mayhem. And, we’ve performed at the Roswell Museum as part of the UFO Festival in Roswell, New Mexico. We’ve even been in two different TV Series filmed in New Mexico!
A string quartet is the recommended ensemble for most events for the fullest sound and the largest available library of songs – with two violins, a viola, and a cello. But we can also provide you with string trio (violin, viola, cello), duo (violin/cello, or 2 cellos), or solo Violin, Cello, or Harp for smaller events or for smaller budgets. Please browse our site, check out our audio and video samples, and read our reviews.
Be sure to check out our reviews on Wedding Wire where we’ve been honored with a Couple’s Choice award every year since 2013! And, we received an Editor’s Choice Award as the #1 Wedding Band in Albuquerque from Wedding Rule for 2022, 2023 and 2024.
