Toronto Wedding Musicians

The Balintore Trio has been performing at wedding ceremonies and receptions in the greater Toronto area for the past 12 years.

Music is a very important part of the wedding experience and adds a great deal of sophistication and elegance to the event. The creation of this ambience and atmosphere is very difficult to duplicate without live music. There are many combinations of musicians to choose from to personalize your event; the Balintore Trio consists of a wonderful combination of flute, violin and cello. String trio or string quartet with singer is also a popular choice as is solo violin. Anything is possible depending on your budget and taste. Music is a reflection of both bride and groom and the look and feel of the event. Just as it is important to choose the right banquet hall /venue for your event or the right dress for the bride, it is also important to choose live music which will add that extra sparkle to your wedding with seasoned professional musicians. The Balintore Trio has performed in numerous venues; in churches, golf courses, chapels, gardens and banquet halls. The choices are endless but live wedding musicians are an important must for your wedding!

Music is primarily used at different points during a wedding ceremony. The music provides a wonderful soothing atmosphere for your guests while they arrive and take their seats. This is typically called the prelude and can consist of a number of different pieces. Classical music is predominantly used in both prelude and wedding ceremony. In the ceremony itself, music called the processional is played for the entrance of groomsmen, mothers, and bridesmaids and of course for the bride. There is music during the signing of the registrar and also during the exit of the bridal party or recessional. During the past few years we as wedding musicians, have noticed a growing trend for more popular music to be played for wedding ceremonies. Songs by artists like Michael Buble, The Beatles and Coldplay are becoming more and more popular as are songs from movies like Shakespeare in Love, The Mission and the Titanic. Seasoned professional wedding musicians such as the Balintore Trio will be happy to accommodate any requests you might have for your wedding day.

Music is also a big part of the reception as well as the wedding ceremony. The Balintore Trio creates a wonderful ambience of elegance and class during a cocktail hour prior to dinner. Live classical music allows for a great backdrop for socializing and catching up for your guests while enjoying champagne, wine and hors d'oeuvres. Or live music during dinner can also add an element of sophistication to the enjoyment of a fabulous wedding meal.

All of the musicians from the Balintore Trio are professional musicians with extensive training and degrees in music. We all work and earn our livings as musicians. Collectively we have done literally hundreds of weddings. We are experienced and knowledgeable in how weddings are conducted, when and where music is to be played and have pretty much seen and experienced just about every form of wedding from formal, large church services to golf courses, to outdoor garden weddings to small intimate events. The Balintore Trio is the perfect choice for your Toronto wedding musician.
