I  just wanted to share a great new review that Duo d'Amore recieved on Weddngwire.
 
"Thank you so much Matthew for being such an important part of our special day!! The duo did a fantastic job, we and the guests were so impressed! Matthew worked with us in advance with the program - sharing expertise and customizing the selections to suit exactly what we were looking for. The website was easy to use and infomative - we had fun choosing our song selections. Everything was as promised and as expected!"

Great new review from clients

As I was checking my email yeasterday, I recieved quite a nice surprise: a beautiful review from clients from a wedding ceremony  that took place at Ball's Falls Chapel in May 2013:

"Ester and Phil here, you may recall that your duo graced our wedding
ceremony this past May at Balls Falls. We wanted to thank both of you
for the fantastic job, in the aftermath of the ceremony we didn't
have a chance to catch you before you departed. The arrangement of
'Will the Night' was spot on and helped to make our ceremony a very
personal, touching experience whose soundtrack we will always
remember"

Thanks again, best of luck, we will certainly recommend you to others should the opportunity arise."

 

Thanks for such a nice email--we really enjoyed making your day special, and perforing at the beautiful and intimate Chapel at Ball's Falls Conservation area.

William and Kate’s Royal Baby, christening and music ideas

With the news of the Royal Baby being delivered today, it got me thinking about christening music. Aside from performing at wedding ceremonies, receptions, memorials, funerals and private and special events Duo d’Amore also performs in a number of baptisms and Christenings each year.

The Royal Family always does a great job of selecting music, and hire fantastic people to work on their musical team. (Around the time of the royal wedding, I met with one of the musicians who performed and helped to plan the event while on tour with a choir from London).

The christening of the baby will likely take place in the Music Room of Buckingham Palace, which begs the question: what music will Kate Middleton and Prince William choose for the christening? If I could recommend something, I would choose music that is classical, and that is somewhat soothing such as:

Bach Air on the G string
Bach: Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring
Bach: Sheep May Safely Graze
For some reason, the music of Bach is a wonderful fit. It is nice with a solo violin, or a violin and cello duo, or even organ with either violin or cello. The music room of Buckingham Palace does not have an organ, so I would recommend the violin and cello duo if the royal family decides to have music for the christening.

Duo d’Amore was honored and excited to perform for a 50th Anniversary celebration held at a beautiful restaurant in downtown New Hamburg, which is close to Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford. The venue comprises a refurbished private residence, now a restaurant and inn, originally built in 1847. The house is adjacent to a lovely park, and is situated on the banks of the Nith River.

Our violin and cello duo was hired to perform for 2 hours, and to play a variety of classical music selecting pieces from our repertoire by composers such as Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Pachelbel etc. The musicians received many wonderful coments of their performance, and everyone had an enjoyable time.

Venue: The Waterlot, 17 Huron New Hamburg, ON N0B 2G0
Live Entertainment: Duo d’Amore-string duos, trios and quartets
