The Crystal Strings has come a long way since 1978. Through the years we’ve kept an unwavering commitment to outstanding customer service, musicianship and professionalism. Today, we have grown into a full service music agency known as Sterling Artists, Inc. Although many aspects of our agency have grown over time, those same values upon which the company was originally founded will always remain our centerpiece.

With each new day comes an opportunity and responsibility to take the best possible care of the many people we meet. But to us, you are all so much more than that. We consider you part of our family and we hope our service is a reflection of that.
