Violin & Viola

A delightful ensemble, the violin and viola duet is perfect for all ceremonies, especially those looking to mix in a little bit of pop with classical music. We recommend booking this ensemble if you're having a smaller cocktail hour (fewer than 75 guests) and are looking for mostly classical music with a little bit of pop thrown in. This is especially a good choice if you're looking for a bigger sound, but don't have a large performance space.
