A touch of class and elegance is what you will get with our beautiful flute duos... the music is heavenly! Add violin, cello and trumpet and you have a mini orchestra; or just add one, or two! Flutist Geri Rizzo also has a lovely voice and can cantor or add to your ceremony music duo at no additional fee. Favorite duos include:
Flute and Guitar, Great for the Beach and private parties; Flute and Violin or Two Flutes, very pretty; Flute and Harp, sooo elegant!
We not only play classical music, but beloved show tunes, movie themes, jazz standards (flute and piano/flute and guitar) or flute and guitar classic rock and top 40 hits duo... For weddings, we arrive one hour early, set up, then play 1/2 prelude music. The ceremony then starts, and we perform processionals for the Moms (if wanted); the bridal party and the bride. If there is a unity candle service or any other during the ceremony, we play for that; then the recessionals ensue. For the cocktail hour, we play light classical, standards, and movie themes. Bottom line, we sound beautiful! Just listen...
