Since 1998, Venus Ensembles has proudly provided the finest musicians for wedding ceremony music, cocktail music and all other special events in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Long Island, Westchester County and beyond.
Our carefully chosen concert-quality musicians perform regularly in venues such Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Blue Note, Radio City Music Hall, and everywhere in between.
Our musicians have been featured on CNN, The Today Show, Late Night with David Letterman, and in many other TV spots.
We have been listed by Modern Bride as one of the top 150 Entertainment Vendors for Weddings in the country (and only one of the top few in New York City).
We have been continuously listed in the New York Magazine Wedding issue as one of New York City’s best vendors since its inception.
My expert advice has been published in New York Magazine, Modern Bride, and Brides New York.
We have traveled near and far, including the exclusive island of Canouan in the Grenadines – where we were honored to be part of the very first wedding at the Raffles Resort and Spa.
Even as a professional musician, I did not realize until I got married myself just how integral the music and the quality of the musicians are to the experience of matrimony. After my honeymoon, I created Venus Ensembles so that every couple could have concert-quality music at their wedding, just as we did.
As graduates of Juilliard, my husband and I had the opportunity to select simply the best players for our wedding without any worries about professionalism or quality. Giving this unique option to others is the principle on which Venus Ensembles is founded.
The full-time professional musicians I provide have been trained at only the best music schools, including the Juilliard School in New York, the Paris Conservatoire, and the Guildhall School in London.
My colleagues and I regularly perform at Carnegie Hall, in Lincoln Center, and on Broadway as soloists, chamber musicians, or with renowned orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
I not only bring the best musicians to you, but also include a highly personalized and efficient service to help plan your every musical need. All the details required to make a seamless special event are discussed and planned with me well beforehand.
