A few weeks ago we received an email on behalf of the Canadian flm distributor for Elevation Pictures, with a

special invite for our players to attend an advance screening of a The Song Of Names. The film stars Tim Roth and Clive Owen and is directed by Francois Girard. Needless to say we are honoured and excited to see this movie, and from the trailer the violin playing looks great!

Wedding Music Toronto- Elizabeth and Bruno’s wedding August 24, Copper Creek Golf Course, violin and cello

Our violin and cello duo performed a beautiful wedding ceremony and cocktail reception on the terrace at Copper Creek Golf Course in Vaughan.  As the guests arrived before the ceremony, we set the tome by performing a great selection of classical music, continuing on to the ceremony itself with a traditional theme:

 

Wedding party processional: Bach Air on the G-string
Bride processional: Pachelbel Canon D
Signing: Bach-Gounod Ave Maria
Recessional: Clarke Trumpet Voluntary

One of the things that we really enjoy is being able to tailor the length of songs to fit the portions of the ceremony, and classical selections work very well to create a custom, seamless beginning and end to the various songs. As we transitioned from the ceremony to the cocktail hour we then started to play much more upbeat selections from our extensive pop repertoire.  This is something that adds a really unique and exciting touch, having the strings play both classical and then great pop arrangements, and it is something that the bride, groom and their guests will always remember. Our thanks to photographer Samantha Ong for her beautiful work!

 

Cocktail Hour:

A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
Con Te Partiro – Francesco Sartori and L. Quarantotto
The Rose – Bette Midler
Wonderful Tonight – Eric Clapton
Marry Me – Train
Thank You for Loving Me – Bon Jovi
Unchained Melody – The Righteous Brothers
Unforgettable – Nat King Cole
You Raise Me Up – Josh Groban
Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen
What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong
River Flows in You – Yiruma
Can’t Help Falling in Love – Elvis Presley

Wedding Music Toronto- She Said “Yes” Marriage Proposal at the CN Tower, Toronto

 I was thrilled with Duo D’Amore from the planning, to the execution, to the immediate follow-up. My overall experience was phenomenal and the performance itself was unforgettable. The violin and cello duo played a custom arrangement that I had requested in advance; it was nothing short of amazing. The price was a bargain, as well. I would highly recommend Duo D’Amore to any and all who are interested in a memorable musical experience!” Eli M.

 

What can we say—this was a great event, and everything came together flawlessly! Eli hired us to perform for an hour at Lookout Level of the CN Tower[embed=video] and as we had arranged, our players would receive a cue to start playing, as he proposed to his girlfriend. She said “yes” and the rest is history! We were honoured to be a part of this fantastic experience!

Wedding string quartet Toronto: Gary and Adora's wedding March 31, 2018, Tyndale University Chapel

 

"It was a pleasure working with you. Your team was amazing" Adora and Gary

 

What a beautiful wedding and look at the gorgeous Church! We had  a great time working with Gary and Adora to plan the ceremony music, and were able to come up with a unique playlist of songs that represented exactly the way they felt about each other and about the wedding day as a whole. Asyou can see from the following playlist, the string quartet performed a mix of classical music, and more modern music. As our largest ensemble performing in such a beautiful, large and resonant space of Tyndale Chapel University Church was ideal, and they we able to fill the Church with the full, nuanced sound of the string quartet!
