How to choose music for my wedding ceremony in Chicago

Choosing your ceremony music

Musicians will begin playing prelude fifteen minutes prior to your ceremony (as guests arrive), for your processionals, during your  ceremony and as you recess the ceremony as a married couple. 
Do you want the classics with a more traditional approach or perhaps you want to put a twist on some of your favorite rock and contemporary pieces.  We have music and styles to suit every taste and event theme.

    String Quartet

    2 violins, 1 viola, 1 cello

    Our most popular ensemble. The quartet has the most extensive repertoire from classical, pop and classic rock.  The quartet's sound is equally suited to a small garden or a large church wedding.  The string quartet is a perfect choice for ceremonies and receptions.

    String Trio

    2 violins, 1 cello

    This ensemble has either two violins and one cello. The trio produces a beautiful sound that is perfect for smaller performance venues and more modest budgets.  This ensemble is is well suited for wedding ceremonies and smaller cocktail hours. 



    String Duo

    1 violin, 1 cello

    The string duo is our smallest ensemble. It is perfect for intimate gatherings and also works well for indoor ceremonies. While the string duo repertoire is limited, many selections can be adapted to provide a light and beautiful sound.
