The First Note


Our name, Bella Nota, means "Beautiful Note" in Italian. A performance by the Bella Nota String Quartet will add elegance and sophistication to a wide variety of events.Since the quartet's inception in 1999, we have performed for wedding ceremonies and receptions (both indoors and outdoors), cocktail and holiday parties, corporate events, high teas, anniversaries and birthday parties. Our extensive repertoire includes a variety of musical styles from traditional wedding selections to upbeat classical pieces, pop, jazz, rags, Broadway hits, and lively tangos. The Bella Nota String Quartet has a rich and beautiful sound that will be a highlight of your special occasion.


The Bella Nota musicians are highly trained with degrees and experiences from leading music schools including University of Minnesota, University of Northwestern, and St. Olaf College. As freelance musicians and music educators, our members bring a variety of skills and talents to the group. As individuals we have performed in the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, Bloomington Symphony, Duluth-Superior Symphony, St. Cloud Symphony, Kenwood Symphony Orchestra, Exultate Chamber Choir and Orchestra, The Linden Hills Trio, Gilbert Sullivan Very Light Orchestra, The Shadows Band, Robby Vee and His Rock-N-Roll Caravan, and The Whitesidewalls.
