Wedding Violinist Cellist Burlington: Jennifer and Stephen

 

Jennifer and Stephen’s 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.

There is no question that the city of Burlington has some beautiful venues, but we and our clients always fall hard for Spencer’s. The venue’s angled glass room is very modern, while the service and the attention to detail from the staff has been honed for years, so it’s no secret that we love to perform here. The clients requested a mixture of classical and pop music during the wedding ceremony, with classical coming to the forefront. The bridesmaid’s processional was Bach’s Sheep May Safely Graze, and this piece is a beautiful way to ease into the ceremony. As the brie walked down the aisle, the music shifted slightly to a Bach’s Air. This song has a wonderful octave leaps in the bass, which helps to anchor the sound and give the song a great footing to support the soaring and smooth upper line played by the violin. Of course, all of this is accentuated and highlighted by the beautiful acoustic in the room. Still sticking with Bach, the next time the string trio performed in the ceremony was when the papers were being signed. Bach’s Jesu Joy is a natural fit in keeping with the ‘Bach” theme. As the couple exited just after the officiant announced their marriage, we performed the upbeat and exciting (also very popular) Viva la Vida by Coldplay.
