Before the New Year arrives, I like to take a few moments to look back on the previous year, and 2016, was certainly a great year. Although 2016 is almost over, I can safely say that it was our best year yet--full of fantastic wedding and corporate performances, with fantastic violinists, violists and cellists and  great chamber music performances with the violin and cello duo, string trio and string quartet.

2016 was a year of fantastic clients (as always) and an opportunity for us to work with fantastic venues (hotels, wineries, restaurants etc) and  wedding planners and event planners.

We are extremely excited for 2017, and can't wait to see what the next year brings!

 

Warm regards,

Summer 2015 Wedding Season; Feeling Thankful; Awesome Accolades and New Reviews

As June wraps up, wedding season is just about in full swing, and will continue until September, when things start to slow down. One of the great things (knock on wood) about 2015 so far is that the weather, while quite variable during the week, has been uniformly great across the country on weekends, something that we are thankful for, and we hope it continues all year long!

Another thing that we are thankful for of late is the awesome feedback and exposure that our string ensemble has received over the past few months.  Just a few weeks ago, a wedding that our Toronto wedding ensemble of violin and cello held at the Four Seasons was featured on the Wedluxe blog:

And just prior to that, another Toronto wedding ceremony that we performed at was featured on event source:

As if that weren’t exciting enough, we have received lost of great feedback from clients across the country, and here are two recent reviews:

My wedding was just this past Saturday and I have to say Duo D'Amore hit it out of the park! My ceremony music was exceptional! A big thank you to Matthew for all of his rapid communication with me! I must have sent the poor man 20 panicked emails after meeting with our priest each time and finding out about something that wasn't previously communicated to me that the musicians had to do. Matthew made sure everything was taken care of and always put me at ease. I would absolutely recommend Duo D'Amore to anyone looking for beautiful music for their event.” Elysse, bride

 

Thank you so much for your wishes below and please thank the duo that performed at my wedding – it was absolutely beautiful. They played wonderfully and I look forward to many future performances very soon!” Emily, bride

“I just wanted to send you a quick email and thank you so much for the exquisite string duet at our wedding on October 20th.  It was absolutely perfect and all of our guests were raving about how beautiful the music was.  Thank you also for all of your help coordinating everything leading up to the wedding.  I really appreciate your patience and helpful suggestions along the way.”  Thanks again, Bonnie, bride

The chapel of the Old Mill Toronto is a candle lit version of a 16th century chapel, and is exquisite to look at and also to perform in. We often perform here for wedding ceremonies and we always enjoy performing in this space with it’s well balanced acoustic. For Bonnie and Marco’s ceremony, we performed Pachelbel Canon for the processional, which is a very classic choice and one that we like to recommend as it just works so well. The signing music was the famous Arioso by JS Bach, also an excellent choice, as the signing portion of the ceremony is a great time for introspection, and reflection. This piece suited that mood. Finally for the recessional as the bride and groom walked down the aisle, our violinist and cellist launched into a more modern vein with All You Need is Love by the Beatles.

Processional: Pachelbel Canon
Signing: Bach Arioso
Recessional: Beatles All You Need Is Love
