The proposal that everybody want, "The Caproccio Ensemble" will help you to get. Natalie had the best predisposition to satisfy my request. She listened my plan and suggested different ways to get the best moment in our life. The proposal day was perfect, my girl thought that we were in the princess story. Every were perfect and as I wanted. I am very happy with the Capriccio Service, I am sure to recommend them.
Natalie Kriegler performed eloquently as a Solo Violinist at a very special event for my family! I choose Natalie based on her expertise of a diversified portfolio of her music from Show tunes, Romance and Classical- ranging from Baroque through Modern pieces. Natalie dedicated much time in discussions with me on identifying each musical piece that best suited the songs/tunes that fit perfectly to my family occasion. She also prepared me a sample set of those pieces prior to booking. In addition, Natalie compiled a complete list of the exact pieces chosen and similar music to eloquently match the theme of the party. The actual day of "this wonderful surprise" of Natalie's appearance and performance at my family occasion made the gathering So Very Special! She performed wonderfully, eloquently and every guest was so delighted to be able to have had the opportunity to listen and enjoy her superb performance!

Past Booked Events
|December 10, 2018 • 1:00pm - 5:00pm||Personal Occasion|
We have repertoire ranging from great classical music, light jazzy songs, Broadway showtunes and popular film/movie themes both vintage and new, American standards, songs from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's to the more current hits of today. Arrangements and customization of our playlist are are hallmark and correspond with our "Platinum" package. We offer 3 packages. Our repertoire is vast and there are 1000 selections in our library of music. Due to the large # of songs you can choose from and the fact that usually at a 1 hour cocktail hour or for a ceremony most people only need to choose between 5 to 30 selections and the fact that we cannot bring the 1000's of songs with us to sift through and play all of our selections are customized into music books before we arrive and are all set to play for you. It takes time to customize music books and to write new song arrangements, however if your requests are simple, within our library of songs and do not involve our writing any additional new song arrangement just for you, we can reserve for you via our "Silver" (lesser priced) package option. Feel free to contact us for more information at any time!
