Music

Our enormous list of repertoire ranges from Traditional to Rock. We have music from Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, and Bach. If you have a large event that requires amplification, we are also able to provide our own sound system.

Your music coordinator provides free unlimited assistance to aid you in the process of selecting music for your event. We will provide you with suggestions as to what music we feel is most suitable. If you have specific selections that you would like performed, please let us know ahead of time so that we can have adequate time to locate the music or create a custom arrangement just for you. We will arrive at your venue no later than 30 minutes before the scheduled time of performance to coordinate walking cues for the processional and receive ceremony and recessional cues from your officiate. In the case of other types of events, we are experienced in working with function staff during dinners, receptions, parties, and other special occasions, paying the closest attention to every detail as to make your event a success!

The wedding ceremony music tends to be softer, usually classical wedding music or rock ballads. There should be about five songs played as a prelude, lasting approximately 15-20 minutes while guests are seated, then a special song when the mothers of the bride and groom are seated. There are two songs during the processional, one when the bridesmaids enter, and the most dramatic as the bride walks up the aisle. The most joyous music is played in the recessional, when the bride and groom leave together.

There can be special songs at different points in the ceremony, such as after exchanging the rings and vows, lighting the unity candle, or taking communion. Some churches have rules about wedding songs used during your ceremony so be sure to ask your clergy person or officiant. Some of our suggestions with audio samples are available to the left. Our full repertoire list is available for download below.

Voted BEST Wedding Ceremony Music by Boston A-List in 2012, 2011, and 2010!

  • The Boston String Quartet made such a profound effect on the elegance of our wedding. They arrived well in advance of the event, and performed so eloquently that I would recommend them for any formal event. I can’t thank them enough for the beauty of their performance that really made such an impact on our special day.
