Your wedding day is the one of best days of your life! Great music is a very important aspect of a beautiful ceremony. I am a professional flutist, and play in several ensembles that you can chose from for your ceremony. The Silverwood Trio (flute, violin, and 'cello) is a wonderful combination of strings with flute, and appropriate for every wedding setting! Silverwood Duo ( flute and violin) is a beautiful joining of two treble voices. Flute and harp is so elegant, and romantic! Duo Celeste (flute and keyboard), is wonderful, especially for a church wedding, since the pairing can be flute and organ, or flute and piano! Classical and Pop are available in all combinations.
Valerie was a wonderful presence and I received many compliments on her playing. She played a very special song that I requested that made walking down the aisle even more memorable. I recommend her services ten times over!
Valorie of the Silverwood Trio is a fabulous flutist and was a joy to perform with. The people at the wedding were quite complimentary of our duo (I'm a harpist) and of her playing. She was professional, musical, and reliable. I hope to work with her again when I play at events.
Response from The Silverwood Trio:
Equally fabulous is harpist Laurel Federbush! She is a true professional, with a great sense of musical flair to match the style of each song we played. She is super organized, and a pleasure to work with! Everyone at the wedding was raving about the beautiful harp and flute duo! I highly recommend her, and hope for many future collaborations with her!
Valorie was very professional and provided a nice balance with the church music provided. Highly recommended.
Response from The Silverwood Trio:
Thanks very much Paula! It was a beautiful ceremony! Joining me at St. Brigit were Pianist/ Organist Katherine Florian and Cantor Jennifer Matthews. They are wonderful!
