Arcobaleno Strings is a group of professional and classically trained musicians with many years of performance experience. We are based in Tacoma, Washington and perform around the Puget Sound area.

We specialize in weddings and receptions, large corporate events, holiday parties and other memorable occasions. We work with you well before your event date to understand your preferences and plan just the right music for your celebration.

We are unique in that we can be arranged in a variety of ways to fit your taste and budget. We are available as a solo, duo, trio or quartet with many options in instrumentation.

Are you planning an outdoor event? Or an indoor party? We have learned from experience that live musicians usually need amplification in those situations. If you are planning an outdoor wedding, you also want your officiant to be heard. This is especially true if your event is near the water or traffic. We offer complimentary amplification for our group and for the officiant (with a small fee) so no one misses a moment of your special day! (Generally indoor ceremonies do not need amplification.)

Please visit our website to learn more about us, your options and rates. www.arcobalenostrings.com Read less

The music Arcobaleno Strings provided was beautiful and set a romantic tone for the wedding. But more impressive was Nichole's commitment to working with me. I admitted I know next to nothing about music, so she not only emailed me multiple suggestions and song lists, but she also arranged a private consultation without charge. She gave her suggestions for music, and also gave me tips for the ceremony itself. She was so dedicated to making my ceremony perfect. I strongly recommend Arcobaleno Strings.

Arcobaleno Strings was absolutely AWESOME!!!! From the moment I first contacted Nicole Williams, she was extremely responsive, thorough, and helpful. She worked with me to create a custom music program for our Jewish wedding and was always incredibly prompt. On the day of the wedding, her group was timely, very professional, and they played absolutely beautifully (we had a string trio). The music literally brought my partner and I, and our guests, to tears! My only wish is that we could have hung out around the musicians longer to listen to them more! They created the perfect atmosphere we were hoping for. (Note that they also provide their own amplification and will use it if necessary based on the space and venue). I couldn't recommend Arcobaleno Strings highly enough--they are simply spectacular!

Nicole Williams played her Cello during our wedding reception and did such a wonderful job! Booking her through Arcobaleno Strings based on my needs was so easy. I told them what I was looking for, and they placed me with the right person. I was even able to pick out traditional Jewish music, which all of my Husband's guests really enjoyed. Nicole was dressed professionally and played beautifully. I would recommend her to play in anyone of my friends weddings!!

I hired Nicole and Arcobaleno Strings to play a string trio during my wedding ceremony. They were easy to work with, very professional, and provided beautiful music for my wedding ceremony. I didn't even meet them in person before the big day, but Nicole made me comfortable enough with her email communications to trust them without needing to meet. I would definitely recommend hiring them for your event. I can't wait to get my wedding video back to listen to their songs!

We hired Nicole Williams, cellist and manager of Arcobaleno Strings, to play for our daughter’s wedding and cocktail hour before the reception started. Our daughter and her fiancé met with Nicole prior to the wedding to choose their favorite music for the occasion. Nicole was able to help the couple decide which pieces meant the most to them. As a result, the ceremony was so elegant and sophisticated! I highly recommend Arcobaleno Strings and would love to hire them again! Thank you Nicole!
