New for 2015-Duo d’Amore adds ukulele to instrument lineup
We are extremely excited to add the ukulele to our wedding and event music starting in the summer of 2015. As far as we know we are the first Canadian wedding and event ensemble to do this!The ukulele is super hot and trendy at the moment, and we love it as well. Why the ukulele? As a classical and pop string ensemble performing especially for wedding ceremonies, our clients are always on the search for something new and unexpected, and the ukulele is perfect, and also sounds great with either the violin or cello. We can really see the ukulele working extremely well at small to medium sized weddings. Can you picture for example a classical string ensemble performing the music of Bach for the wedding party and bridesmaids walk down the aisle, and then switching to ukulele and cello for a Hawaiian version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow–it would be so unexpected and give a completely different, fun exciting sound to a piece that we perform with the violin and cello.
As we are just starting to put together our ukulele and violin and cello music, let us know what songs you might like!
