Toronto and GTA Wedding Music

Highlighting Duo d'Amore's live classical and pop string performances at wedding ceremonies, cocktail and dinner receptions in Toronto, the GTA and Vaughan, Woodbridge, Orangeville, Mississauga, Markham, Caledon, Milton, Richmond Hill, Stouffville and surrounding areas. We perform indoors and outdoors in venues ranging from hotels, golf courses, churches, cathedrals, conference centres, chapels, inns, restaurants, gazebos, lodges, terraces, 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.

 

This wedding ceremony at the old mill combined classical elegance with popular light and fun music, and a good measure of family involvement. The ceremony was beautiful. The string duo started off by performing a lovely mix of classical and popular music as the guests were arriving and taking their seats for the ceremony. At the start of the wedding ceremony, the musicians performed a beautiful rendition Somewhere Over the Rainbow for the bridesmaids, followed by Don’t you Worry child for the bride. The family involvement came next, as the bride’s sister sang during the signing of the register. After the officiant introduced the couple, amidst clapping and cheering, the string duo performed the classic Mendelssohn’s Wedding March as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife.

Pat and Jim’s Celebration of Marriage dinner, November 9, 2013 at Canoe Restaurant, violin and cello duo Toronto ON

"Please give a big Thank you to the violin and cello players who played such beautiful music for us. Their music certainly contributed to the success of our dinner.” Pat and Jim

Our violin and cello duo was hired to perform for a couple whose wedding ceremony took place last February, and were have a dinner party this past November. The clients were interested in having a variety of classical music performed as guests were taking their seats for dinner, and throughout the dinner. We often perform for events such as these, and it is always a pleasure which we look forward to.

The string duo performed for a beautiful wedding ceremony at St Mary’s Catholic Church on October 26th. The music selections were wonderfully traditional, highlighting baroque composers such as Bach and Pachelbel, classical composers like Mendelssohn and Romantic composers (especially during the signing) as Charles Gounod.

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.

Cheryl and Luciano’s wedding ceremony at Humber Valley United Church, violin and cello duo, September 21, 2013, Toronto ON

This wedding ceremony was a great bringing together of two people, and interesting time for us, as our violinist and cellist were able to share part of the day’s performance with one of the bridesmaids. We started performing as guests were being seated, and played the beautiful Jesu Joy by Bach as the bridesmaids entered and lined up at the front of the Church,. For the bride our string ensemble played Pachelbel Canon in D. During the signing one of the bridesmaids sang a beautiful rendition of The Prayer, and we serenaded everyone out of the church with Handel’s La Rejouissance. As well the ceremony was beautifully officiated by Roxanna from Love Fete Weddings and Events.
