Forte Strings


Forte Strings began about 20 years ago as a traditional string quartet formed by
some first chair musicians in the SAU symphony. Since then we’ve broadened our
musical abilities/repertoire and become a progressive post-modern musical act
featuring music of all styles and genres. Forte Strings is comprised of
Conrad Hyde (who plays cello/guitar/vocals), Darlene (keyboard/vocals), and
Shawn and Shannon complete the group with violin/fiddle. Forte Strings caters
to the discerning client seeking exceptional, exciting, and elegant music for
any occasion. We are a full service provider of all things music – whether it is
a wedding, reception (or both), corporate event or private party – we do it all!
We provide all the audio equipment for most events and even offer DJ services on
occasion – however – our “forte” is providing the absolute best in live music!!
