Did you know our Pachelbel “Canon in D” duo Youtube video has nearly two million views? How about that!
We receive the ever-occasional request for a violin and cello duo. While our musicians are highly skilled and can make most musical combinations sound superb, violin-cello duos are not the best choice for events. The song and repertoire selection is limited; the sound projection is next to none, making it hard for your guests to hear the music, and to be quite honest, duo performances leave the audience bored. That’s why we suggest duos for background music or specialty recitals, but not for your wedding, reception, or cocktail hour.
That said, if you’re working within a tight budget and your event seems suitable for a duo, then you’ve come to the right place! We are the best musicians in town, and we want to deliver the highest quality performance for your event. We have many duo options available for you. We’ve got a violin and guitar duo which is a fabulous ensemble. Try out our violin and piano or cello and piano duos; these gorgeous instruments mesh super well together! Side note, most Charleston wedding venues do not have baby grand pianos, so we can rent one for your occasion, have it delivered to your wedding venue, or we can bust out one of our top-of-the-line keyboards.
Do you desire a little more elegance or maybe a calming effect in your musical duo choice? You can’t go wrong with a violinist, cellist, or flutist coupled with a harpist. We like hearing and seeing the harp duos at wedding ceremonies only and recommend letting the harpist wow your guests with a solo during the cocktail hour.
We play all styles of music: jazz, pop, classical, show tunes, etc. Schedule us to perform during the wedding ceremony only, just the cocktail hour, or both!
Remember, the string trio costs a little bit extra, and you get more bang for your buck through sound projection and a more extensive repertoire list.
