Guidelines to follow when selecting a group

The listed ensembles work well when performing material suitable for their respective role. Please select the instrumentation that best matches your taste.

Classical groups add elegance and style to your affair. Classical musicians read formal written parts (just like symphony orchestra musicians). Classical ensembles work well for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, dinner music and high tea.

Jazz groups are less formal; they usually do not rely on written parts. Jazz “cats” like to improvise and every improvised solo is unique. Jazz groups work well for cocktail hours, receptions and nightclubs.

There is a third group, which performs classical, show tunes, jazz etc. (a kind of “hybrid” group). A good example of this is the flute, violin and guitar trio. This group uses unique arrangements of choice classical works. Their classical repertoire is not as extensive as traditional classical ensembles, but they can also perform many tunes with no written music. This “hybrid” group works well for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and dinner music.
