The Asheville String Trio

One of the most active groups Ron performs with. It consists of present and former principals from the Asheville Symphony Orchestra and includes Ron Clearfield on cello, Inez Redman on violin and Margery Kowal on viola. The string trio (violin, viola and cello) is a legendary sound though much more cost-effective than the traditional string quartet. Another violin can always be added to create a string quartet or downsize to a duo (violin and cello). Solo cello, string duo, trio and quartet are all available. The additions of a trumpet, flute, voice or harp are also options. The fee for whatever size group preferred is highly competitive but will always be world-class in quality. The repertoire available is from the Classics as well as from Appalachian, Celtic, Broadway and even Pop/Rock music. Many of the arrangements as recorded by the Vitamin String Quartet are available.

  • Inez Redman studied with the legendary violinist Mischa Mischakoff. She was formerly with the Detroit and Chautaqua Symphonies and is presently associate concertmaster of the Asheville Symphony.
  • Margery Kowal was principal viola with the Asheville Symphony from 1978 to 2007. She holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Maryland and a Masters of Music from Western Carolina University.
