Suite Elegance was originally created from a trio of high school orchestra friends hailing from Lake Local Schools in Uniontown, Ohio. Originally part of a small select ensemble known as Suite Serenades, these 3 ladies began playing together in 1987 and grew up - both literally and musically - from their earliest starts. Their director fostered a disciplined passion for performing in intimate venues for parties, weddings, dinners, Christmas festivities, and dedications with many wonderful opportunities to perform together throughout the year.
After graduation, all three friends went different directions with their lives. Two went on to college and one stayed behind to start a new life with her sweetheart. Degrees were had and marriages made and 1994 brought all three ladies back to town to resume where they had left off in their desire to perform locally. Suite Elegance was born in 1995, and it wasn't long before they were on their way to building a successful client base and gig calendar in the greater Akron-Canton area.
The years since have seen many evolutions in this ensemble. As of 2012, two of the remaining three members still perform actively with the group, and Suite Elegance has grown to include flute, viola, two classical guitars, and several violins and cellos. Suite Elegance still prides itself in being as flexible as every occasion - and budget - dictates, as well as being professional in all aspects of musicianship and business. Each musician brings a lifetime of experiences to the group, and all have established successful lives and careers within this community beyond Suite Elegance. But the passion to share the music that unites us and colors every aspect of our lives still remains an unquenchable flame.
While some of us are teachers, some of us are students; some are active in civic organizations, some of us are involved in family obligations; some of us have music degrees, and some of us do not. We all freelance professionally, but we find our greatest joy to be in performing together as Suite Elegance and giving our greatest performances to you, our prospective client.

Suite Elegance performed with a string quartet at my small wedding. I had an outlandish request for song on my walk, it looked like it might not happen because it was not geared the way most songs are, but Kelly worked and worked it til she got it! She never gave up on us! The performance of ALL the songs were perfect. Characteristic of professionals that play in symphonies. The guests were all impressed and had fun with our song choices. Everything was cued perfectly and communication was amazing. I highly recommend Suite Elegance for any live music need!

We hired suite elegance less than three weeks before our ceremony, and I am so glad they were available for our date. Kelly answered all of my questions promptly, and together we put together a fun playlist for our ceremony. All of my guests loved the sound of the trio, and would not hesitate to recommend these musicians to another wedding couple. Their performance was outstanding, adding a personal touch to our ceremony.

String trio from Suite Elegance was fantastic for my ceremony music! I received tons of compliments about what a great job they did. Email response time was quick, they were very professional, they offered tons of music selections AND flexibility with those options by playing some songs for my ceremony that were not on their list, and their online form to finalize details and select music was easy to use and made the process seamless. Highly recommend!
We at Columbia Woodlands have had the pleasure of Suite Elegance performing for a ceremony, and we found them to be very professional, prepared, organized and their music was beautiful. They were easy to communicate with and their set up was simple and trouble free. I can recommend Suite Elegance for adding a romantic, moving experience for your ceremony or dining.
Great talent here! A must for anyone wanting string musicians. Price is reasonable and they are wonderful! Highly Recommended. Beth Genovese, The Venue
