Delta Strings quartet is composed of two violins, one viola, and one cello.
Meet the Strings
When I was ten, I was introduced to my first little violin by an amazing teacher, Mr. Maloney, in my Northern California school orchestra class. What was really special about Mr. Maloney was his passion not just about the violin, but about music as a whole. He would tell us inspiring stories of composers and introduce us to the hidden stories folded within symphonies. I developed a great affection for the violin, and a deep passion for music. Today, I hope to inspire my own students to not just play violin, but develop a love for music, and I absolutely love being able to play my fiddle in such a wide array of places. I find myself playing Annie one night, Shostakovitch’s 6th another, and finishing the week with playing with the band at a Cafe. -Reylynn
Krystyna Taylor was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California and began playing cello in an after school music program in fifth grade. She quickly fell in love with the deep and dulcet tones of the instrument, as well as the free pass on chores the more she practiced. Realizing the power of the cello musically, as well as a way to manipulate adults in her life, she soon became adept at performing in public and honed her skills enough to start gigging in middle school.
