Cheryl and her group were wonderful to work with - incredibly responsive and professional. They learned two new songs within a brief period, and really made sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. The performance itself was also perfect. Would recommend them for any event, but for weddings especially - they were so easy to work with during what is a very busy time and it was much appreciated.
Response from All Trillium Ensembles & A Beautiful Violin:
Thank you, Alaina, we truly enjoyed providing you & your family and friends with beautiful music. We appreciate your leaving the glowing review, too! Have a wonderful life together.
This was a beautiful and exceptional addition to our wedding day. To say it wouldn't have been the same without the beautiful tones of Trillium is an understatement. Cheryl was very easy and accommodating to work with prior to and a lovely person to meet the day of. We had a violin/cello duo and it was perfect. Thank you.
Prompt responses to my questions, great job on music, included several special songs we wanted and everyone loved their sound. Dinner was greatly enhanced by the music!

What to Expect
Before you decide to book us, let's talk over your details, find the best Live Music to make your Special Event even better. You are spending a considerable amount of money on your Event, so let's make sure we are all on the same page! Unlike some musicians, Trillium Ensembles typically does only ONE event per day--this way we can remain fresh and strong, for YOUR event, not worrying about rushing to/from someone else's event.
On the day of event we check traffic, parking, road construction, and allow plenty of transportation time. Upon arrival at your Event, your guests & other vendors will appreciate our professional behavior, attractive appearance & grooming,and friendly demeanor.
While performing we wear Concert Black (dressy/ tuxedo) or for extremely hot/cold weather we will dress for the weather.
During performance, your guests will appreciate our high level of artistry, skills, and organized sheet music folders to minimize page turns or other gaps in performance. We do our best to store our equipment out of the way. During parties & receptions we do take 10 mins/hour paid breaks, standard for our industry. We are happy to coincide our breaks with your toasts or other announcements.
After performance we clear our equipment from the area quickly as needed.
Trillium Ensembles--Duo, Trio, Quartet, solo violin--Trillium members are all Full-Time Professional Musicians, who rehearse & perform together in Paid Concerts, bringing our professional expertise to Your Special Event.

Additional Booking Notes
All services provided upon receipt of written AFM Contract & deposit--please request a copy of contract prior to booking, so we can be sure everything is as you wish!
We provide our instruments, sheet music, music stands, portable lighting for our sheet music (your venue still needs to provide ambient lighting), and transportation within the Minneapolis/St Paul metro area. Locations beyond the metro area may have additional fee to compensate for additional Travel Time.
We need your venue to provide one armless chair for each musician, and sufficient floor space (about 6 x 8 feet) away from crowded doorways. We can help you determine the best location at your venue.
Outdoors events require protection from sun, rain, winds, etc, which will harm our expensive wood instruments. An Indoors alternative or tent with walls is a good choice. If you do not have a tent, we will set up in a shady location. Some venues (like golf courses) do not allow tents because it will damage the turf--however sometimes they will put up their own tents. For most events we perform without any sound assistance; if you require amplification please consider your venue's existing amplification (which is customized to their acoustics), your DJ, or a separate sound system vendor.
