The Atoka String Quartet was founded by 1st Violinist Tara Planeta, with the desire to bring her performing career closer to home in Virginia Hunt Country. While we continue to perform in Washington D.C.and the region, we especially love and value our local community, and are proud of all the beautiful venues and countryside that Loudoun & Fauquier Counties have to offer. All ASQ members are formally educated in music performance, composition, and pedagogy, and have decades of professional performing experience. We are also actively involved in music education which includes teaching at private and public schools around Northern Virginia. When it comes to our clients, we enjoy going above and beyond to accommodate the special requests and atmosphere that clients envision for their event.
