All About Us (in a nutshell)


We are all UP College of Music Graduates, and are now presently members of professional orchestras in the Philippines. We regularly perform symphonic and classical pieces with foreign artists, as part of our musical discipline and profession.  We decided to form our own smaller group apart from our regular orchestra jobs (and I called it The Manila String Machine, since I wanted our group to produce different kinds of music, from classical to rock, using STRINGED instruments), and create an edge here in the Philippines by arranging music specially for the string quartet/ensemble. A standard string quartet is composed of two violins, a viola and a cello.
