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.

 

We often perform in the Distillery district for wedding and private events, and the Thompson Landry Gallery is a popular venue for both.

During the planning process I had the pleasure of speaking with Melanie, and she was so pleasant and nice to work with. In one of our first emails she commented that Our “website and samples are great!!!, which is always nice to hear.

There ceremony was beautiful, and the music selections reflected classical aesthetic: Very well chosen!

June 8th was the day for string trios—our musicians performed as a trio for a number of events, and we enjoy performing in this format. The client actually hired us as a duo but decided that they would like to have a trio perform instead, and as always we were happy to add another player and made the change effortless for the client as we took care of all the details.

As this Church is Catholic, the clients chose a wonderful selection of songs during the wedding ceremony:

Bridesmaids Processional: Canon in D
Bride Processional: Wagner Bridal Chorus
Signing: Schubert: Ave Maria
Communion: Bach Air on the G-string
Recessional: Mouret: Rondeau

Ensemble: Duo d’Amore-string trio

Hits: 1441

Melissa and Aaron hired our string trio to perform for the wedding ceremony as well as a cocktail reception, following shortly after at Hazelton Manor in Vaughan. Our musicians arrived and started to perform around 1:45, as the ceremony was scheduled to begin at 2pm. The music selections worked out well, as the clients were able to personalize the music played as the bride walked down the aisle, and we were happy as always to accommodate the request of Never Say Never by the Fray.

After the guests had exited we drove to the reception location, and performed a selection of fun and upbeat, playful pop music, which everyone enjoyed.

As a string ensemble we perform at many Catholic Churches, either for a full mass or partial mass, depending on what the clients and Church are interested in. This wedding, was a very traditional full Catholic mass, and our string trio were honored to be a part of the big day my provided wonderful music.

One of our favorite songs in the program was music that we performed during the signing, the Schubert Ave Maria. Quite often clients request the Bach-Gounod Ave Maria, so it was a nice change for us to perform the other (and just as beautiful) version.

Melissa and Aaron’s wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at St Anthony’s Church and Hazelton Manor, String Trio, June 8, 2013, Toronto and Vaughan ON

“(Duo d’Amore) were fantastic and sounded wonderful. Thank you again for all of your assistance in helping to make our wedding day a memorable experience”

 Our string trio had a great time performing for this wedding ceremony at the beautiful St Anthony’s Church in Toronto, and the cocktail reception in Vaughan. The acoustics of churches are often fantastic, and the sound of the Fray reverberating off the walls of the church by our string ensemble was exactly what the bride and groom were looking for.  Blending modern music with classical music is starting to become a bit of a trend, and when it is done well with a lot of thought and planning such as with this wedding, it is a really unforgettable and special experience for everyone present.
