Classical Wedding Musicians in Italy

Joy Ensemble

Wedding harpist & violinist in ItalyThinking about visually attractive, unusual, versatile, and affordable live music for your wedding in Italy?
What could be more elegant than harp and violin? Imagine the golden ornamental columns of the harp ornamenting the ceremonial space, be it a beach setting in the sunset or the solemn appointments of the church. The ringing tones of the prelude music set the mood for the wedding party, and the full strains of the violin bring memories to all present.

Suddenly the bridal march bursts forth in bell-like sonority, where guests may have expected the conventional drone of the organ, and all rise with eyes upon you as you approach the bridegroom, in happy greeting. For the reception and even the dinner, the same musicians change the mood to easy listening favorites, up-beat contemporary, or familiar classics, as desired, as you host the most important celebration of your life.

Joy Ensemble - Harp & Violin Duo

The repertory list of the Joy Ensemble Harp & Violin Duo includes hundreds of standards, and ethnic and classical favorites, from pop to classics. Your own choices from outside the list can generally be accommodated, with early enough notice.
Typically, Joy Ensemble provides the following music for a wedding:

  • Prelude - before the ceremony while guests are being seated.
  • Processionals - music played for the attendants and the bride while they walk up the aisle.
  • Ceremony - any special music during the service.
  • Recessional - a triumphant tune for the exit of the bride and groom and attendants.
  • Post-Ceremony - while your guests are leaving after the service.

The sound of the violin is perfectly complimented by the harp’s accompaniment. This duo is certain to please at any time. Joy Ensemble can play all of the standard wedding ceremony repertoire, and can also provide a lovely backdrop to your cocktail hour or dinner.
