The Five Strings
The Five Strings is a gifted performing violin group comprised of five siblings – Talisa, Tavia, Tiana, Trevin and Tiarra – from St. George, Utah. Listening audiences have been awestruck by the extraordinary talents of this group whose ages range from 6 to 16 years old. Not only do they play the violin, but this multitalented group of skilled musicians features the mandolin, guitar, ukulele, and piano, as well as singing and dancing. They recently returned to their hometown in Utah from Nashville, Tennessee, where they received instruction from some of the top music and dance teachers.
Performing in front of live audiences is not something that is foreign to them as they have performed for a variety of audiences from all over the world. In the short description of their Facebook page, they state, “Performing and sharing our love for music, is what we love to do most!” A few of their favorite venues where they have performed include Branson, Missouri, Tuacahn Amphitheater, Nashville, Tennessee, and the top resorts throughout the islands of Hawaii. From the second they raise their bows to begin a performance, their love and dedication of music shines through.
Talisa is the oldest and the leader of the group. She is 16 years old and started playing the violin at the age of 6. In addition to playing the violin, she competes with a clogging team, sings, plays piano, mandolin, guitar, and ukulele. She enjoys learning new things, and absolutely loves performing on stage.
The second oldest is Tavia who is 15 years old. She has been playing the violin since she was 5, and has a keen sense of humor that keeps everyone laughing. Like her older sister, she also competes in clogging, and plays piano, guitar, mandolin, and the ukulele. She loves singing, performing, and changing the lives of others through music.
At 11 years old, Tiana loves to sing and perform, and is one of the lead vocalists for the group. She is always looking for ways that she can be of help. She began playing the violin at age 4, and like her two older sisters, she clogs and plays piano.
Trevin is also 11 years old and has been playing the violin since he was 4. He also loves to sing, play piano and is currently learning to play the bagpipes.
Tiarra is the youngest member of the group. She is 6 years old and has been performing with her brother and sisters since she was 2. She is often the center of attention, stealing the show away from her older sisters and brother. She is beginning to become proficient at playing the piano.
The group released their first album, “The Five Stings,” in 2013 and have just released their second album, “Five.” Their incredible music can be purchased from the store on their Official Website, or downloaded from iTunes.
The Five Strings have recently turned their focus towards their brand new YouTube Channel, where they have teamed up with one of the original “Piano Guys” to produce music videos, and other family friendly content.
Fans can also support them through their Patreon page.
Talisa, Tavia, Tiana, Trevin and Tiarra are thankful for the talents that they have been given, and look forward to seeing their friends, family, and acquaintances at their upcoming performances.
