ENSEMBLE OPTIONS

String Trio 

string quartet

A string quartet includes two violins, a viola, and a cello, and is the traditional chamber ensemble used at weddings or events. This option provides the fullest sound, including a bass line, multiple harmonies, and the melody.

trio

In contrast with the string quartet, this option includes three instruments and is open to any combination of three instruments (i.e. violin, viola, and cello.) A group this size projects very well in any space, whether it be indoor or outdoor. A major advantage to the trio instead of a full quartet is that you have almost the same sound with less cost.

duo

This option is best for a small event and features two instruments playing a harmony and/or bass line with the melody. A duo can include instrument combinations of two violins, violin and viola, or violin and cello. Piano can be included, but the client must provide a working instrument at the premises.

solo

This option is best for small, intimate events or an event with minimal space for musicians. One musician will play the melody.

LOOKING FOR BRASS?

A brass ensemble is an extremely versatile option for any indoor or outdoor wedding. One of our partner ensembles, Tallabrassy, includes trumpet, french horn, trombone, and tuba. They can play as soloists and in any combination of the four instruments, and can also play with the string ensembles (different pricing will apply). Capable of performing many styles of music, Tallabrassy can add an exciting fanfare, a moment of pensive reflection, drinking songs, and anything in-between for your special day!
