Our Musical Services

Corda Entertainment offers artistic excellence, professionalism and many years of experience to make your special event truly memorable. Your choices include solo instruments of violin, trumpet, guitar, flute, harp, piano/organ and vocals, as well as string duos, trios, quartets, quintets, brass ensembles and small orchestras.

Choosing Your Instruments / Ensembles

The solo violin is a great option for a small, simple and elegant wedding of approximately 50 guests. You might also consider a strolling violinist for your reception or other event where you would like your guests to be able to make requests.

The string duo is suited for 50 to 100 guests and can be in many conbinations: violin/flute, two violins, violin/harp, violin/cello, or violin/piano (organ). The first three give a lighter and transparent melody and harmony, the others a melody and bass sound.

The string trio is great for 100 to 150 guests because it offers an inner harmony to the melody and bass for more sound. The combinations include violin/viola/cello, flute/violin/cello or piano/violin/cello.

The string quartet has the roundest fullest sound and is well suited for over 150 guests. The group includes two violins, viola and cello which offers the most versatility in music selections. This is our most popular combination.

The string quintet offers the full sound of the quartet plus a stand up bass to add more depth to the sound. This is a great idea for the wedding that is outdoors in a wide open area or a large ballroom where the sound needs to travel.

For an added touch the trumpet is a great addition to the string trio, quartet or quintet. A trumpet fanfare before the bridal entrance adds a grand announcement and will surely capture the audience's attention. The trumpet can also be utilized during the prelude and recessional music as well.

The brass quintet, comprised of two trumpets, tuba, trombone and French horn, makes for a majestic event. For the grandest affairs we will combine the brass quintet with the string quartet.

Planning Your Ceremony / Wedding Ceremony Music

Our goal is to provide beautiful and memorable music for your special day. Before your wedding day we help you select music that personalizes your program. On your wedding day we make your music flow seamlessly with all of your entrances and processions. We take our cues from your wedding director beforehand, and if there isn't a wedding director we guide you through the process. We adjust speed and song lengths to the pace of your processions.

In a typical ceremony we perform in these moments:
  • A 30 minute prelude while your guests are being seated
  • Special music for entrances of the grandmothers and mothers
  • Special music for entrances of the bridesmaids, flower girls and ring bearers
  • Special music for the entrance of the bride for the processional
  • Select music during the service (lighting of unity candle, communion, reflection)
  • Special music for the recessional for the bride/groom
  • Short postlude music for your guests

For cocktail hour, reception or other special events, we offer a variety of music including Light Classical, Tangos, Scott Joplin Rags, Cole Porter Jazz, Broadway and Pop Show Tunes, Opera Favorites, The Beatles and The Carpenters. Please inquire as to what styles work best for the instrumentation you choose.

We are happy to accompany singers whenever possible. Please inquire for details.

The fee for our services is based on the choice of ensemble and the length of the engagement.

“The quartet was incredible. It was so nice and easy working with you. You were always on top of things, responding immediately, and staying organized. I really appreciate that as it made planning the wedding much more enjoyable. I will miss working with you. Have anyone call, anytime. I will let them know firsthand how great you all were.”
