Wedding String Quartet GTA: Erin and Jamie at Airship 37

Sundays performance and I might add Saturdays were just beautiful and added a great atmosphere of calm and rejoicing to both occasions. Mother of the bride

This wedding ceremony was the start of a series of vents for the bride and groom spanning two days, and two string ensembles. The wedding ceremony took place on the Saturday at Airship 37 in the distillery district, and included a very modern grouping of songs that fit in perfectly with the type of ceremony the bride and groom had in mind. For the prelude and seating, the string quartet performed a number of pieces, ending with the Theme from Skyrim. To start the bridesmaids processional we performed All I Want is You by U2, and segued into Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. The next portion of the ceremony where the musicians perform is for the signing, and we performed the upbeat Bittersweet Symphony, as this particular signing was fairly short. The recessional was really fun, as it was a homage to the Breakfast Club, with the song Don’t You Forget About Me by Simple Minds, and even included the fist pump!

Following the ceremony the string quartet also performed for the cocktail hour in the Fermenting Cellar. The next day the clients hired the violin and cello duo to perform at a brunch at George Restaurant. Once again everything was very well received.

Wedding String Quartet Toronto: Rica and Philip at Le Select Bistro

Though we love performing Churches, Cathedrals and sacred venues, both big and small, there is something unique and special about performing in a more intimate secular space, like Le Select Bistro. Musically, clients typically have a great deal more freedom with music choices, and Rica and Philip certainly made the best of that freedom, selecting an elegant, personal but appropriate selection of songs that also had a nod to more contemporary and popular selections.

Also nice was the inclusion of the first movement of Bach’s Cello Suite number one for the signing. This is not done often, but it worked extremely well!

Prelude: Handel and 'Beautiful Day by U2 plus 'Something' by the Beatles
Bridesmaids: Bach Air on the G string
Bride entrance: Pachelbel: Canon
Signing : First movement of Bach cello suite #1
Exit music: Journey - don't stop believing

Venue: Le Select Bistro, Erin, coordinator
Wedding music: Duo d’Amore-string duos, trios and quartets
