Ensemble Impreza

Ensemble Impreza is Boston and New England’s elite classical chamber ensemble specializing in music for weddings, corporate events and private functions.

Repertoire ranges from Shubert, Vivaldi, Haydn, Brahms, Bach, Mozart and Beethoven to Broadway, seasonal, and various contemporary pieces. Since 1980, Ensemble Impreza has given over 3000 performances. Our musicians play with such venerable ensembles as the Boston Pops, Boston Ballet, Handel & Haydn Society, Boston Lyric Opera, and the Wang Center. (For clients mostly interested in contemporary pop repertoire check out Infinity Strings.)

This group is available in various configurations that incorporate violin, cello, viola, french horn, piano, flute, trumpet and woodwind.   Soloists are also available.

Our experience guarantees perfection at your event. The services of Ensemble Impreza are available throughout New England. Bookings can be arranged from two days to two years before an event. For additional information and current rates, contact your Murray Hill Talent Representative.

 

Since Ensemble Impreza offers over twenty types of ensembles, the repertoire is extensive and varied. Some classical pieces are arranged for all ensembles. For instance, the Pachelbel Canon, originally for strings, can also be played by a harp and flute duet or brass trio. Other literature, such as Chopin piano preludes and Beethoven string quartets, sound well only on the instruments for which they were composed. When requesting pieces, we suggest that you select music from the list below. We will be happy to honor other requests provided that you supply the printed music at least four weeks in advance of the engagement.
