Why Book With Arioso
How to Plan Your Music
Why book with Arioso?
We perform regularly as a group.
Though musicians are accustomed to adapting to other's playing styles, a polished sound comes from a group that works together frequently. Many other groups are run by one manager who contacts whoever is available for a service. When you book with Arioso you know who will be playing at your event and can be confident that we play and rehearse together regularly.
We have a flat rate for wedding ceremonies.
A flat rate means that you know exactly what your final bill is before the wedding day. Other groups may charge per hour. When weddings start late or run longer than anticipated you may need to negotiate additional payment just after the ceremony has finished; you've got plenty of other things on your mind at that point in time!
We help you pick out your music.
Not only do we happily send out a Demo CD, we also send a suggestion CD with 23 songs that we have in our repertoire. You can listen to these to help decide which songs you would like played. If you need help or consultation with the process, we are always willing to help talk you through your options.
We can arrange nearly any song
If we don't have an arrangement of a song you would like played, we can write it for you! Our repertoire is not limited to what is on the page.
We have plenty of references, some of whom even offered testimonials to add
to the page. Names and contact information for other past customers
are avaliable upon request.
Thank you so much to you and your fellow ensemble members for a wonderful
performance at our wedding. The music was perfect - just what I had
imagined for the day! Matt and I have received several compliments from
guests who also enjoyed your music. You were great to work with all
through the process as well. I feel very fortunate to have stumbled
across your group online. If you are ever asked for a reference, please
keep me in mind.
I don't know how often I will have the need for a string ensemble, but
you can be sure you will be the person I call should the occasion arise,
and I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know who may be considering
I can't thank you enough for making our wedding ceremony that much more

We highly recommend the Arioso Ensemble! We had a string trio play at
our wedding ceremony and we absolutely loved them!! The musicians showed
up on time dressed in proper attire and the music was perfect. They
were worth every penny.

The music made my ceremony complete! It was a joy to have you there
and has been such a pleasure working with you. The quality of the musicians
was incredible and I loved the music that you played and all of my personal
interactions with Chris were great. Thank you!!!
