Other ensembles we offer:

The violin and cello duo Ottawa Gatineau

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 Toronto and the GTA. 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.

What size of group/event would you recommend for a violin and cello duo string ensemble?

We often recommend the violin and cello duo for between 50-150 guests. When mic’s, we have performed for over 600, so it all depends. The more that we know about the type of event that you are hosting in Ottawa Gatineau, the easier it is for us to recommend a string ensemble that will sound the best and fit with the event that you are planning.

The String Trio Ottawa Gatineau

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 violin and cello duo string 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 Ottawa Gatineau

Our string quartet is the largest wedding ensemble that we have for hire in Ottawa Gatineau. 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. During this time, the string quartet also began to be used for more private, intimate occasions such as weddings.
