Professional Wedding and Event Music for All Occasions
Planning a wedding or special event? A String Ensemble is an elegant addition to any ceremony!
Our musicians are professionals with many years of experience playing at weddings, ceremonies, receptions, banquets, and festivals. For small events, a solo violin or string duo adds simple elegance without overwhelming your guests. If you have a large venue and/or long guest list, you may prefer a larger ensemble. More musicians creates a fuller sound with lusher harmonies.



Wedding Packages
On the day of your wedding, the musicians will arrive 40 minutes prior to your ceremony. We will perform 30 minutes of Prelude Music as your guests arrive, providing a peaceful and elegant Classical introduction to your ceremony. We can play one song for the entire Processional or provide separate selections for the wedding party (bridesmaids, flower girls) and the Bride's own entry. Appropriate music for the Signing of the Registry will be performed to entertain your guests as you sign the official marriage documents! A joyful piece will be selected for the Bride & Groom's Recessional and continued as guests depart the Church Sanctuary/Hall/Ceremony space.

More Info
A minimum deposit of $100 will Save the Date for your special day. We welcome your music requests! We are also happy to make appropriate selections for you if you are undecided, or to provide you with recommendations. For Special Requests that are outside of our (very large!) repertoire, there may be an additional charge of $50/piece for an arrangement to be written just for you. For ceremonies significantly outside of the Hamilton area, an additional driving surchage may ensue. To meet in person to discuss and hear musical samples with the co-ordinator, you can book a FREE appointment. Questions via phone and email are also welcomed. If you would like the co-ordinator to attend the dress rehearsal with you, please make a note when booking. Additional fees will apply. Our valuable instruments are sensitive to temperature changes and humidity. Please ensure you have an indoor backup venue in case of inclement weather!
