These pieces are often played at weddings during the prelude and postlude. Canon in D is also a popular bridal entrance song.

Important Outdoor Requirements

Please Provide Shade/Umbrella

Please Prepare a Covered/Dry Location in Case of Rain

  • We require a covered/dry location for our musicians, instruments, and audio equipment in case of rain. Exposure to water or humidity is damaging to our musical instruments and audio equipment. In some cases exposure to elements may lead to irreparable damage to the instruments. 
 Please Provide Heater
  • We love playing outdoors but in lower temperatures please provide a heater for our musicians. Our musicians remain outdoors for more than an hour with an additional hour to set up before the appointment. The heater will keep them warm before and during their performance.

Thank you so much for enriching everyone’s experience during my mom’s memorial. Your team work made it possible for my mom to have a beautiful celebration.



Marc is an amazing cellist. He brought an extra depth in the celebration through his beautiful music. He is super easy to work with and and was super nimble in changing timing and plans as the occasion called for minor changes.



On behalf of my family, thank you so much for the rich and wonderful music.
