Formed in 2006, Dash Strings Quartet is a professional music group that caters to live events in the Southern California area, including Los Angeles, San Diego, and Santa Barbara. Dash Strings is well known for the diversity of the music they perform (Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop and World) and each of the players is well grounded in multiple styles of music. Members of the quartet hold degrees from San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Berklee College of Music, Cal State Northridge, UCLA, and Boston Conservatory, and have worked with many high-profile artists such as Stevie Wonder, Macy Gray, Barbara Streisand, Karyn White, Natalie Cole, and more.
The quartet was the featured music group on KCAL 9’s 2011 special-edition wedding episode and recently appeared on the season finale of BRAVO’s Millionaire Matchmaker that aired in November 2011. As part of their community outreach initiative, they actively works with the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health performing and leading clinics, and in Spring 2011, the quartet had the privilege of performing with Nathaniel Ayers, the man who inspired the movie, “The Soloist”. Founded by Alicia Spillias and Emily Moore, the quartet is a green business that seeks low-impact and eco-friendly alternatives in every business choice and donates a portion of its yearly proceeds to American Forests to help plant new trees around the world.
