Wedding and Special Event Music
Add beauty and richness to your special event with music by a talented and expressive group of string players. Emily Thompson Violin and the Lyria Ensemble have performed in concerts, church services, weddings, funerals, receptions and galas throughout Northeast Indiana.
The ensemble is available in several configurations.
Solo violin is appropriate for a small wedding or party. The violin projects beautifully in a church, garden, or lakeside, with sweet, melodic tones. Adding a solo performer gives you the chance to have live music in an intimate setting.
Duo violins add both melody and harmony. The violinists respond musically to each other, weaving intricate lines of music with spirit and grace. Our duo is known for incredible blend and sensitivity, and having two violinists adds great energy to the sound, greatly increasing the dramatic effect.
String trio adds in a cello to supply the bass line. Trio performances have the agility of the violinists coupled with the depth and power of the cello for a truly sustained and rich sound. Cello playing also gives the grounding needed for church music or to accompany a vocalist. String trio music features a full, rich tone in a small, flexible performing group.
String quartet is the gold standard for weddings and events. Two violins, viola, and cello can play the full version of any piece with a glorious, powerful sound. Large weddings and receptions are best served by the whole quartet of strings to provide the total orchestral string sound.
Other performers, including wind instruments, vocals, keyboard or guitar may also be contracted through our ensemble.
