All for the Love of Music
Bellafina String Ensemble was founded by a group of dedicated musicians. Since its founding in 2012, Bellafina has played for weddings, parties, musicals, and other events. Each musician brings a love of music, and the passion to make each performance perfect.
Bellafina is not a typical string quartet. A group of core members with a rotating team of other musicians allows the group to perform as a string quartet, string trio, duet, Bluegrass band, and more. Additionally, several members of the group are skilled in other instruments. Check out the Musician Bios for more information.
Although headquartered in Eugene, Oregon, Bellafina is available for performance nationwide.

Quincy Summerlin- Cello, Piano, Ukulele, Accordion
If you ask Quincy why he started playing the Cello, he will tell you that his mother tricked him into it. The son of a music teacher, Quincy has been involved in music his entire life. He has performed with choirs and operas, but quickly realized he belongs in the orchestra.
Quincy has performed in orchestras and for weddings, funerals, musicals, bachelor parties, and more. He has recorded with Portland-based band TIP on their first album. Regardless of location or occasion, Quincy is very dedicated to music. On at least one occasion, he completed an outdoor performance despite having heat stroke.
Quincy is available as a soloist, for orchestras and bands, for session work, and for lessons.

Cathy is not only a member of Bellafina. She is a talented artist and graphic designer, and designed the Bellafina logo. She is a medical professional and has saved Quincy on more than one occasion.
Cathy is available as a soloist, ensemble playing, and design work.
Christine Sauer- celtic harp
Christine Sauer’s instrument of choice is the Celtic harp. She believes that music - and especially harp music - can touch hearts and connect with people in powerful ways. She has found that people respond to both the visual presence of the harp as well as the beautiful sounds of the harp strings. Her musical tastes are eclectic ranging from lively, traditional, popular to meditative. She finds great joy in playing with the Bellafina Ensemble, the Front Porch Players and the Cascade Harp Ensemble. She has played in the Atrium, at Actor’s Cabaret and in weddings, memorial services, fund raisers and private parties.
Christine is available as a soloist, and an ensemble player.
