It is quite an honor to perform for Canada’s largest bank, and in such an innovative building, at it may become the first LEED certified Toronto office tower. The building not only uses deep lake water-cooling and air circulation, but also combines window glazing, and cutting edge plumbing.

What ensembles do you offer?

We offer, solo violinists, solo cellists, violin and cello duo, string trio and string quartet.

The solo violin

The smallest bowed string instrument in the violin family is the violin. It is also the quietest instrument, but that does not mean that it cannot produce a sound. Don’t forget that violin soloists regularly perform with a 50-100 piece orchestra, in a large hall seating 2000 or more people, and the solo violin can be heard over the entire orchestra, and at the very back of the concert hall. How? This comes down to the skill of the violinist, and positioning. This is why at corporate events for example we often are quite picky about the exact spot where our violinists and ensembles perform, no matter if the string ensemble is outdoors at a venue like Graydon Hall, or indoors at a wedding venue like Casa Loma, a single violinist is a great choice.

The solo cello

Like the solo violin, a solo cellist is a great option for slightly smaller corporate events and receptions. Larger than the violin, it is very resonant, and can play an equally wide range of music. Clients that hire the solo cello and solo violin for weddings and events often have a guest list of under 50, but not necessarily so. Here are several excellent and popular songs for the solo cello.

The violin and cello duo

The violin and cello duo, or string duet, is made up of one violin player and one cello player. It is our most requested string ensemble for hire. Having both the violin, which is able to play soaring melodies, and the cello which is able to anchor and often accompany, while having an even larger sound it is no wonder that this is our most popular string ensemble. I like to imagine that the violin is like the right hand of the piano and the cello is the left had of the piano, together they can play almost anything, and that is another reason that it is our most popular ensembles.

What size of group/event would you recommend for a violin and cello duo string ensemble?

The short answer is we often recommend the violin and cello duo for between 50-150 guests. But when mic’s, we have performed for over 600, so it all depends. The more that we know about the type of event that you are hosting, the easier it is for us to recommend a string ensemble that will sound the best and fit with the wedding or special event that you are planning.

The String Trio

The string trio is made up of the violin and cello, with the addition of a third filler instrument. This is typically a violin or viola.

What size of group/event would you recommend for a violin and cello duo string ensemble?

This larger string ensemble is suited for events with over 200 guests, and larger venues in general. With a slightly larger sound than the violin and cello duo, but not as large or rich sound as the string quartet, the string trio fits right in the middle of the string ensembles that we offer.

The string quartet-our largest ensemble

Our string quartet is the largest string ensembles that we have for hire. The string quartet has a long and rich history, dating back to the classical period of music in the 18th century. During this time, composers such as Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven wrote some of the most famous and enduring string quartet works. In the 19th century, the string quartet continued to be an important genre. Composers such as Schubert and Brahms producing some of their most notable works in this format. During this time, the string quartet also began to be used for more private, intimate occasions such as weddings and corporate events.
