      Individually, Monique and Chauntee have performed in some of the most reputable venues in the country, including Carnegie Hall, and have soloed with Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Madison Symphony Orchestra.

      SistaStrings formed in 2014 after undergraduate training (Chauntee from University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and Monique from Wheaton College and University of Wisconsin-Madison), and the sisters returned home to Milwaukee and started doing string arrangements for local hip-hop artists. This led to performances with Malik Yusef, Black Violin, Bone Thugs 'N Harmony, Lupe Fiasco, BJ The Chicago Kid, and The Roots. They perform frequently with Peter Mulvey.

      Outreach and representation are important to these two young ladies as African American string players. They often perform and teach in schools and youth centers, encouraging educators and students alike. The ladies are advocates for diversity in the arts and promote social justice in all that they do musically.
