Chicago String Quartet

Together since 2004, the Silhouette Ensemble was formed by Northwestern University alumni to provide quality string chamber music for various events around the Chicago area. Our members are all very accomplished musicians, having performed with the world’s top orchestras, winning numerous prestigious awards. Since 2004, we have performed extensively at weddings, corporate events, holiday parties, graduations and many other special occasions.

What makes the Sihouette Ensemble unique, is its versatility. We specialize in arranging and performing all genres of music including classical, jazz, broadway, country, ethnic, and pop. Whether you are looking for a solo musician or a chamber orchestra, we will help you find the ensemble that fits both your need and your budget.

Chamber ensemble is the most intimate way for musicians to share artistic expression with each other and their audience. If chosen appropriately, a piece of music can provide atmosphere that is truly unique to the occasion, making it unforgettable. Silhouette musicians are deeply committed to the art of chamber music, bringing class and elegance to every performance.
