Our Story

beyond classical
From the Start

Since 2011

New Ages Strings started its roots in Philadelphia, as far back as 2011. Its’ founder, Rada Culciar, started performing the violin for private events while still studying Music and Performance at Temple University. She quickly wracked up a vast repertoire of classical music, and wanted to venture into more modern genres, not only as a classical and electric violinist, but also as an event DJ!

Before long, Rada was an established DJ and musician, and decided to build something bigger! During the rise of the “DJ Era”, New Age Strings was one of the first DJ/Violin duo, and performed for countless weddings and events, including opening for international artists such as Lisa Lashes, Kasum, The Disco Fries, Michael Brun, Marcus Schossow, Sebjak and Kenneth G. 


New Age Strings is now a full service Wedding and Private Event Musical Ensemble, offering services such as Classical and Modern acoustic Ceremony and Cocktail hour String Ensembles (with or without backing tracks), and Reception DJ/Violin/ Drum fusions!
