Wedding Violinist Cellist Burlington: Jennifer and Stephen wedding ceremony at the Waterfront Hotel in Downtown Burlington, May 17, 2014, violin and cello duo, Burlington ON. We initially spoke with Jennifer as sometimes happens, as they had booked a duo from another company that had to cancel for some reason or another, and we were happy to fill in and perform for her wedding ceremony in downtown Burlington at the Waterfront Hotel. As we subbed in at the last minute, the couple already had their wedding ceremony songs picked out (classical) for the violin and cello duo. They also hired our string ensemble to perform at the cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony, and their only request was to keep the music laid back and fun, and our violinist and cellist performed a mixture of music including several fun pop arrangements.

Solo Violin -wedding ensembles Burlington ON

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 wedding ceremonies 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 or indoors a single violinist is a great choice.

Duo d’Amore’s solo violinist is a great option for those who want live music but have a smaller budget. The solo violinist performs classical pieces, contemporary pieces, and a mix of both. Their music is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, and intimate dinners.

The solo cello Burlington ON

Like the solo violin, a solo cellist is a great option for slightly smaller wedding ceremonies and receptions in Burlington ON. 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.

The violin and cello duo Burlington ON

The violin and cello duo, or string duet, is made up of one violin player and one cello player. This is our most requested string ensemble for hire in Burlington ON. 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.

Duo d’Amore’s violin and cello duo is a popular choice for weddings. The duo consists of a violinist and a cellist who play together, creating a beautiful, harmonious sound. The duo’s repertoire includes classical pieces, contemporary pieces, and a mix of both. Their music is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, and dinner parties.

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, the string trio fits right in the middle of the string ensembles that we offer.

Wedding String quartet Burlington ON

Our string quartet is the largest wedding ensemble that we have for hire. The string quartet has a long and rich history. This dates back to the classical period of music in the 18th century. 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, with composers such as Schubert and Brahms producing some of their most notable works in this format.
