Frequently Asked Questions

Will you help choose music for our event?

Yes. One of our specialties is to create "musical narrative" tailored to your individual needs. We will discuss various terms and parts of your wedding ceremony and guide you in selecting the perfect music for each section of your event.

What styles of music do you play?

We have a diverse repertoire ranging from classical to light jazz, show tunes, tangos and popular songs. We continually update our repertoire with contemporary rock, R&B, and jazz arrangements.

Do you do special music arrangements?

Yes. With pleasure and usually at no extra cost we will arrange any music specifically for an ensemble combination of your choice.

Can you engage other instruments and/or a vocal soloist?

Yes. We engage and perform with trumpet, piano, flute, oboe, harp, guitar and vocal artists.

Can you provide music for the entire event?

Yes! We specialize in performing during ceremonies, receptions, cocktail hours and many other types of private events. Because we are such a diverse group of musicians, it is even possible to have two types of ensembles for a ceremony and reception during the same event.

What about insurance? Are you Insured?

Yes, we are insured, which gives our clients and us that extra peace of mind. Insurance certificates are available upon request.

What do you wear?

We usually wear concert black or black and white attire. Sometimes we're asked to wear different clothing; whatever the client wants!

When do you arrive?

We usually arrive half an hour prior to our scheduled playing time.

Do you use amplification?

We perform on fine concert instruments that are capable of filling a concert hall with sound. Thus, amplification is generally not necessary.

Do you play outdoors?

We are happy to perform for outdoor events provided that there is an alternate location provided in case of precipitation or temperatures below 60 or over 90 degrees.

Do you know how to follow the mass at a Roman Catholic service?

Yes. We are very experienced in the order of the mass, as well as other denominational and civil ceremonies. We can accompany all the parts of the mass. We can work with the church organist or provide our own.

Can you play for Jewish ceremonies?

Yes. We have a complete library of appropriate music and a great deal of experience.

We were thrilled with Campanella Ensemble's performance at our daughter's New York wedding! They were so easy to deal with in the planning process, and very accommodating to our music requests. They were professional throughout, patient and understanding when they found themselves playing prelude music for just the wedding party, as the venue's elevator broke down and delayed the arrival of our guests and causing the ceremony to start late. Their beautiful music gave the ceremony elegance, and more than lived up to my vision for the wedding. I give them high praise and thanks from our family.

Campanella Ensemble played during the ceremony at our wedding. They were fantastic, and exceeded my expectations. They were easy to work with throughout the entire process. Their website was incredibly helpful, offering a wide variety of songs and styles to choose from. We wanted contemporary music played during our ceremony and they were easily able to accommodate us. Campanella Ensemble was the perfect touch to our outdoor garden wedding. Our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music, how unique and personal our ceremony was because of them, and how they created such an enchanting ceremony for us. Wonderful! I highly recommend!

The three musicians who arrived to perform for our event were absolutely incredible. They all arrived on time, or earlier,presented professionally and were quite personable as well. We hired them for a small party, and it felt like we were being treated to a live chamber concert which should have been played to a huge crowd. The performance was as good as any I had heard in major venues in Philadelphia and New York. They played several requests, and played everything just beautifully. The music could be enjoyed as a private concert, but was also unobtrusive to those who engaged in conversations and ejoyed the appetizers, creating a perfectl atmosphere. Everyone was quite impressed and asked for their cards. We could not have been more pleased. It made the event one to remember!
