One of the things that sets Harmonious Music apart from other wedding ceremony and cocktail acts in the New York Metropolitan Area is the violinist’s ability to also play trumpet. This added skill comes in particularly useful during wedding ceremonies.

Imagine this scenario: Your guests are being seated during the ceremonies prelude to the elegant sounds of a classical violin and piano duet. Soon the groom and wedding parties enter to the gentle sounds of Pachelbel’s Canon in D. The energy level among the congregation increases as each bridesmaid walks down the aisle. Suddenly, the sound of a trumpet fanfare rings through the air announcing the arrival of the bride. The change in instrument from violin to trumpet has further heightened the grandeur of the Bride’s entrance and signifies the importance of the event

Historically trumpets have always been used to announce the arrival of royalty. So on your big  day why not get the royal treatment and stroll the aisle to the sounds of Trumpet Voluntary or Wagner’s Bridal Chorus performed on trumpet and Piano or Organ.
