Niagara Wedding Violinist Cellist: Willow Pond

Niagara Wedding Violinist Cellist: Willow Pond. What a gorgeous wedding at Willow Pond Niagara–now with video! It’s January, it’s cold and grey. Really the total opposite of this beautiful wedding ceremony that our string ensemble performed at Niagara Botanical Gardens. Willow pond is on this property.The violin and cello duo provided the perfect atmosphere for the day, with beautiful ceremony music, and the video is courtesy of JJMedia

Wedding ceremony music selections

It was a great pleasure to work with the bride and groom on their music selections. It is of utmost importance that everything fits the spots of the ceremony where music is performed. After some back and forth we now have a great playlist. After the theme from rocky for the ring bearer (so cute!) our violinist and cellist performed the beautiful Two words for the wedding party. The bride walked down to Con Te Partiro. We can perform this song with all our ensembles from a solo violin or cello, to our most popular ensemble the violin and cello duo, or string duet, as well as the string trio and even the string quartet.

What is special about this song?

Incidentally “Con te partirò” (also known as “Time to Say Goodbye”) is an Italian song that became popular globally in the 1990s. It was originally written by Francesco Sartori and Lucio Quarantotto. The song is known for its emotional lyrics and its use of operatic vocals, which set it apart from many other pop songs at the time. It was a big hit in many countries, including Italy, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom, and has since become a classic.

A unique aspect of the ceremony was the dove release and sand ceremony following the signing of the register. As an upbeat exit for the bride and groom we performed “Accidentally in Love” by Counting crows–it was 90’s and fantastic! Listen to a sample from our website:

Niagara quartet wedding ensembles

One of the most popular offerings of Duo d’Amore is their string quartet. A string quartet consists of four musicians who play the violin, viola, and cello. The quartet is a versatile ensemble that can perform a wide range of music, from classical pieces to modern arrangements of popular songs. The string quartet is perfect for weddings, cocktail receptions, and other events that require elegant, sophisticated music.

Pop, Top40, Jazz, Classical

Their ability to perform a mix of classical and contemporary pieces makes them a perfect fit for any event, regardless of the theme or atmosphere.

Wedding ensembles Niagara ON

In addition to their string quartet, Duo d’Amore also offers other wedding ensembles. These include a violin and cello duo, a string trio, and a solo violinist and cellist. These ensembles are perfect for smaller weddings or events that require a more intimate musical setting. The duo and solo performances are also more budget-friendly than a string quartet. This makes them a great option for those who want live music but have a tighter budget.

Solo Violin

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. This is in a large hall seating 2000 or more people, and the solo violin can be heard over the entire orchestra. Not to mention 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 Niagara ON

Like the solo violin, a solo cellist is a great option for slightly smaller events in Niagara 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.

Niagara Wedding Violinist Cellist

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 Niagara 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.

The String Trio Niagara ON

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

What size of group/event would you recommend for a string trio 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, the string trio fits right in the middle of the string ensembles that we offer.

Wedding String quartet Niagara 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.
