Cabaletta Strings is an ensemble based out of Asheville North Carolina under the direction of professional violinist Teresa Curran. We will only hire experienced and professional string players to join us to form string quartets, string trios and string duos. We have over 25 years of experience playing for weddings and other special events and are knowledgeable in working with clients to make their special day unique.

Our goal is to provide beautiful music for weddings, receptions, business events, parties and special events in Western North Carolina. We are classically trained, but love to play all styles of music, covering all genres from J.S. Bach to Bruno Mars. If we don't have it in our repertoire we can most likely find it or make an arrangement.

We will provide a quality performance and beautiful music with professionalism, confidence and expertise.  Please consider Cabaletta Strings to add a touch of elegance to your special day. 



Teresa  is a freelance violinist who currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina. She has played professionally for over 25 years in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. She currently plays with the Asheville Symphony, South Carolina Philharmonic, & Greenville Symphony. She has also been part of small ensemble groups that specialize in weddings, receptions, and corporate events and most recently co-founded Cabaletta Strings. 


Teresa earned her Bachelors degree in violin performance from Converse College where she was concert master.  During her college days she was selected to play the Spoleto Festival in Italy with Sweelinck Conservatory of Amsterdam. She also spent summers studying at Brevard Music Center in Brevard N.C. 

Some of Teresa’s musical highlights have been performing with Edwin McCain, Ray Charles, Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck, Mark O’Conner, Roberta flack, Moody Blues, and Seven Nations. During her free time, Teresa enjoys drawing her whimsical art, playing piano, volunteering at animal rescues, travelling, enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with her 2 dogs.
