About LaChiesa

La Chiesa String Quartet (pronounced la kee-AY-za) is based in the Cincinnati, Ohio area and is available to make your special event truly memorable. The quartet can provide anything from 'background music' to the 'main event,' performing anything from the best in classical music to current popular tunes.

Our goal is to provide you the best 'live elegant' sound possible for your special occasion.

A string quartet is an instrumental ensemble consisting of two violins, one viola, and one cello. La Chiesa String Quartet has been performing since 1990. It was founded by Marva Rasmussen and has provided many weddings, receptions, parties and other special events with a unique, high class blend of live instrumental music.  The members of LaChiesa serve in the various local symphonies, the Blue Ash Symphony, Middletown Symphony, and the Dayton Philharmonic.  Each member also has undergraduate and graduate degrees in their musical discipline.
