It is quite an honor to perform for Canada’s largest bank, and in such an innovative building, at it may become the first LEED certified Toronto office tower. The building not only uses deep lake water-cooling and air circulation, but also combines window glazing, and cutting edge plumbing.

"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.

“We want to say thank you so much for making our day perfect! Everyone loved the violinist and cello player. They were exactly what we were looking for. We couldn't have asked for two more polite and wonderful people to play for us. It was beautiful and they played every song that we requested. We did get a picture with them and I will send them to you when we return back from our honeymoon in Jamaica. Again it was an absolute pleasure to work with you. We will highly recommend you to everyone I know.” Marcia and Chad

Nicole and Jay’s wedding ceremony at Waterloo Park, solo violin, July 6, 2013, Waterloo ON

 “Everything was awesome, thanks again!” Nicole and Jay

Nicole and Jay requested Pachelbel’s Canon to be performed as the bride walked up the aisle to meet the groom. For everything else she left it up to us, and we chose a number of selections to fit alongside it. The park is a great location for a wedding, as it’s very centrally located, not to mention gorgeous!

Rica and Philip’s wedding ceremony June 29, 2013 at Le Select Bistro, Toronto

Though we love performing Churches, Cathedrals and sacred venues, both big and small, there is something unique and special about performing in a more intimate secular space, like Le Select Bistro. Musically, clients typically have a great deal more freedom with music choices, and Rica and Philip certainly made the best of that freedom, selecting an elegant, personal but appropriate selection of songs that also had a nod to more contemporary and popular selections.

Also nice was the inclusion of the first movement of Bach’s Cello Suite number one for the signing. This is not done often, but it worked extremely well!

Prelude: Handel and 'Beautiful Day by U2 plus 'Something' by the Beatles
Bridesmaids: Bach Air on the G string
Bride entrance: Pachelbel: Canon
Signing : First movement of Bach cello suite #1
Exit music: Journey - don't stop believing

Venue: Le Select Bistro, Erin, coordinator
Wedding music: Duo d’Amore-string duos, trios and quartets

Our string duo performed for a lovely winter wedding ceremony. Regarding music for the wedding, the bride wanted to walk down the aisle to Bach Air on the G string, which we think creates a feeling of both richness to the sound but there is also a fresh quality to the music that is timeless. For the music during the signing and recessional, as well as the prelude and postlude music the clients were kind enough to let us select something appropriate. This is a nice gesture and one that helps create a sense of surprise on the wedding day.
