A Classical Musician’s Role at a Wedding
Hiring a classical musician is a great decision when it comes to the overall wedding day. The versatility of a classical piece means that you can book a classical musician for multiple parts of the day. From the processional to the drinks reception, a classical musician will prove to be a prominent performer when necessary but also able to provide the perfect background music during the more social times of the day. For example a classical musician would be a great fit during the arrival of the guests, where they can play some light music as everyone comes in. This is called prelude music and is a great use of a classical musician, such as a string quartet or harpist, to provide some atmosphere while people arrive.
Alongside the arrival of the guests there are other stages of the day where a classical musician can add some ambience, such as the signing of register and following that, the exit of the married couple and guests. The presence of a classical musician can add some levity and romance to the more formal aspects of the wedding. Your wedding can only benefit from hiring a classical musician.
