FAQs

How many songs do I need to pick for my ceremony? 

  • For a Christian/Non-denominational Wedding-- usually one might have three pieces: one for the wedding party processional, one for the entrance of the bride, one for the recessional. For a Jewish wedding-- usually one might have two pieces: one for the rabbi, elders, groom and parents, bridal party; one for the bride and parents. Though, every wedding varies depending on the size of the bridal party and venue.  

How do I choose the music? Am I required to select the whole program? 

  • I can definitely assist you with song selections. Repertoire list is available for reference but specific songs may be available upon request! ​

I want more than just a cello! 

  • No problem! Ensemble options are also available. Examples:  

  • String Duo (Violin & Cello)

  • Flute Duo (Flute & Cello)

  • String Trio (Violin, Viola, & Cello)

  • Flute Trio (Flute, Viola, & Cello)

  • String Quartet (2 Violin, Viola, Cello)

Will you attend the Wedding rehearsal? 

  • We will adept in timing the music to the right length, thus it is not necessary for me, or the ensemble to attend. You can trust and leave that to us!

Will you play outdoor Wedding? 

 

  • Of course! As long as the instruments are not under direct sunlight, rain or drizzle. Instruments are fragile and have special varnishing, so in either case, coverage is necessary (ie. umbrella, shadow, tent).
