Bella Musica Agency
Bella Musica is a musical ensemble centered around a husband / wife team: CARL and BELLA FREEMAN. Both are accomplished violinists, and they truly make beautiful music when playing together! They are joined by equally outstanding musicians depending on the occasion. Usually they perform with string quartet, which is the ensemble of choice for Wedding ceremonies. However they are also available in string trio, violin duet, solo violin, and Piano quartet/quintet.
Bella Musica play all the standard Wedding pieces, and many other classical gems as well. In their professional presentation, they pay particular attention to coordinating selected repertoire with the different events in the Wedding Ceremony: the Guest Seating; the Family Seating; the Bridal Processional; and the Recessional. Music is selected and performed in such a way as to create the most beautiful mood possible.
Carl and Bella Freeman have been playing together since they were married in early 1998, and they have performed at many special occasions - most often for Weddings, but also private parties, Art Museums, Restaurants, and Fund Raisers.
Bella Freeman has been playing and performing for 30 years, and has also taught violin for 20 years. She was concertmaster and manager of Orchestra of Radio and TV in Russia for 10 years. The orchestra toured, performed, and recorded extensively throughout the former Soviet Union. Bella also has equivalent of PHD in Music and Art from Conservatory of Music in Russia.
Carl Freeman studied music at Indiana University, and has been playing violin for over 40 years. He has performed extensively with community orchestras and chamber groups, including several TV appearances. Carl also plays jazz saxophone (and violin) at local jazz clubs, with great success. His specialty is the great jazz standards from the 40's and 50's, including music by Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, Rogers and Hammerstein, and many others.
