The Dime-Store String Ensemble is a classical wedding duo (violin and cello) serving the Salem-Keizer and the surrounding area. We are two high school students with a love and talent for music and are looking to share this gift with others. We have a wide variety of service options, so if you are looking for another ensemble, like a string trio or quartet, we may be able to accommodate this as well.
Price Range: $230
What to Expect
For ceremony music, we provide:
–10 minutes of prelude music
–A short postlude piece
–Any processionals and recessionals during the ceremony
–Free attendance at the rehearsal of your wedding (we don't count it towards the price)
You may pick any and all music used during the service, assuming it is in our repertoire list. We will select prelude and postlude music, unless you have certain preferences.
