With sophistication and style, Elegance presents all of your favorite melodies. The music of violins carries you from the Baroque era into the 21st century, stopping off at Broadway for your most beloved show tunes. The violin has always evoked the human voice, and our selections will have you singing along!

The group is comprised of three or more violinists, with or without accompaniment. The accompaniment can range from a piano, guitar, or accordion to a full rhythm section with bass and drums. It is always our goal to provide the most appropriate group for your event.  

Our presentation is very flexible— we are able to line a staircase to greet your guests as they enter or stroll to tables during dinner service.

Founded by Joyce Westphal, Katherine Hughes, and Debra Mose, Elegance draws from the most talented and seasoned musicians in the Chicago area. Its members play in a wide variety of settings— symphonies, Broadway shows, TV specials— and have performed with an impressive array of international talent. Our group is familiar with the requirements of all types of special events, from weddings to corporate gatherings. Excellence, experience, and the repertoire’s most beautiful music— that’s what you can expect from Elegance!
