Music City Strings keeps busy with a regular schedule of rehearsals, performances and touring.

The group has toured Europe, China and the U.S., and has attracted the attention of the music industry in Nashville.

Music City Strings has performed more than 30 concerts with Grammy Award-winning artists Vince Gill, Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith.

The group was the headliner for the Barrage Next Generation Tours in Wisconsin, Florida, and Arkansas.

They have also performed on the TOKENS Show at the Ryman, at the University of Louisville Suzuki String Institute, the Hope Foundation with Steven Curtis Chapman, DayStar Ministries, and Music City Roots.
