Calgary Wedding Music

Highlighting Duo d'Amore's live classical and pop string performances at wedding ceremonies, cocktail and dinner receptions in Calgary Alberta, Banff, Okotoks, De Winton and surrounding areas. We perform indoors and outdoors in venues ranging from hotels, golf courses, churches, cathedrals, chapels, inns, restaurants, gazebos, lodges, parks, gardens, historic sites, museums, backyards, ballrooms, beaches, and community and banquet halls. A full range of string ensembles: solo violin and cello players, string duos, string trios and string quartets.

 

Megan and Garett’s wedding ceremony at Glencoe Golf and Country Club, violin and cello duo, July 27, 2013, Calgary AB

This was our first time performing at Glencoe Gold and Country Club, and we would love to perform there again, as everything was exceptional. Regarding music song selections, our clients chose very classical and beautiful music to accompany the ceremony. It was also nice that they added a sand ceremony to the wedding, and this is a great opportunity for a very simple and quite short piece of music—in this case our musicians performed Amazing Grace which added a nice touch to the wedding ceremony at the beautiful outdoor location at Glencoe Golf Course in Calgary.

Amber and Vaughan’s wedding at the Fairmont Palliser, violin and cello duo, July 20, Calgary AB

This was Duo d’Amore’s first time performing a wedding ceremony at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary. As I have mentioned in the past, venues other than Churches (though we love playing in beautiful venues with amazing acoustics) can be exceptional spaces to hold weddings and events. Why? Clients get much more of a say in how the ceremony goes, and for us we enjoy it because clients can choose different music from what they might choose if the wedding ceremony takes place in a Church. Amber and Vaughan did just that—they chose an eclectic mix of music that went perfectly with the wedding ceremony.

We had a great time performing at this wedding, and the location was fantastic! Combining this with the couple’s unique and non-traditional pop arrangements of some of the ceremony songs, this was a ceremony to remember!

When Tessa and Ben sent the selections to me, I was struck by how nicely they had combined popular film music with well known classical music, and how well the arrangements sounded for the violinist and cellist. And if you’re having your ceremony at an Observatory, the Imperial March music from Star Wars is a must!

Our clients were married at a beautiful Croatian Church in Calgary, and chose their ceremony music to fit the different parts during the ceremony. We really enjoy performing Charpentier’s Prelude at wedding, as this was no exception, as our string ensemble played this piece of music during the bridesmaid’s processional. Once the bridesmaids got to the front of the church, we performed Pachelbel Canon.  One of our favorite pieces (though somewhat less popular than Jesu Joy is Bach’s other composition, Arioso, which we performed during communion. Rounding out the ceremony was Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.

Bride: Pachelbel Canon D

Amber and Ryan’s wedding ceremony at Triwood community center, Collingwood hall, September 29, 2012, string trio, Calgary AB

Amber and Ryan and a lovely wedding at the Triwood community center. They hired our string trio to perform a selection of classical baroque music for the major parts of the ceremony, and then added a modern song at the end, which is trending at the moment. (and it’s a great idea!). The Community center has a great space to perform in, and because of the wood ceiling and the concrete floors this created a very live acoustic for the musicians and of course the guests. Once again, Duo d’Amore was thrilled to be a part of such a gorgeous wedding ceremony. Congratulations Amber and Ryan.

Processional (Bridesmaids) – Charpentier: Prelude from Te Deum
