Got Strings, LLC was founded by Kristi Monte in August 2016 after hearing someone say, "There is no interest for strings in the Shenandoah Valley." Following this experience, Kristi had a vision from the start to revolutionize the way string ensembles are perceived and strengthen the impact of classical music in the community. Since the formation of Got Strings, Kristi and her team of James Madison University string professionals have performed for many Weddings and Special Events, been featured by multiple news sources, and "together, they have made one of the most unique companies in the music industry."
