Woodwinds

 

A beautiful alternative to traditional string ensembles.  Woodwinds are an excellent choice for outdoor spaces or larger venues where sound needs to carry.  Several trio combinations are available.  Each group can include flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon.  All of these instrumentations blend seamlessly to create a lovely light sound.

About the Musicians

 

The musicians who perform with the various ensembles represented by Class Acts Entertainment are all professionals with degrees in music from a variety of Music Schools and Universities.  They all perform with a variety of chamber music ensembles and orchestras within Central Ohio.  Most important is that each of them has extensive experience performing wedding ceremonies and receptions.  The basic dress code for the musicians is dark suit for men, and for the ladies either all black or white blouse, black jacket & mid-length black skirt or pants.  More formal dress is also available.

 

There is a large amount of published music already available for the ensembles, but some special requests require the musicians to make new arrangements for the occasion.  They are all happy to do this when there is time and the music is made available.  Some selections just don’t sound right with Classical Ensembles (especially duos and trios) so you should consult with your agent on the suitability of your requests.  When it isn’t practical for a live performance, you can always consider having that selection played from a CD or Tape.  If necessary one of the musicians could operate the machine for you.
