Wedding ensemble options:
The Tryos Ensemble has several different instrumentation options to meet the musical and budget needs of any wedding. Tryos Ensemble's most popular wedding options are listed below, but if you have a specific vision for an ensemble that is not listed here, Tryos can make it happen! Not sure which ensemble is best for your wedding? Just send a note and we would be happy to discuss your event.
The Trumpet and Cello Duo combines deep cello tones with a lyrical and brilliant trumpet sound. Featuring a greater dynamic range than a string duo, the ensemble works wonderfully in both large and small spaces.
The Three Trumpets and Piano Ensemble is perfect for a grand entrance! Capable of brilliant fanfares or warm melodies, three trumpets create a stunning aural and visual effect. This ensemble can play all the same repertoire of the Two Trumpets and Piano option, but features an even fuller sound.
Do you perform outside?
Absolutely, all that we need is a power source to plug the keyboard in. The only caveat is that we are not able to perform in any kind of precipitation unless we have some sort of tent or roof over us.
What do you require at the venue?
All we require is an electrical outlet to plug into and a few chairs. We will bring all of our own stands.
Can I have the Tryos trumpet trio perform with the organist at my church?
Absolutely, we have a great deal of experience performing with church organists for weddings and religious services. We are happy to communicate with the organist to coordinate all the musical needs.
Can you perform with strings?
Yes, check out the Tryos Ensemble trumpet and cello duo on the sounds page. We also have several string groups with which we collaborate, some of which are located on the links page.
Can a guest singer or instrumentalist perform with Tryos?
Yes, we are able to perform with guest singers and instrumentalists. We are also able to hire a singer or particular instrumentalist if you would like. Our keyboardists are very experienced in collaborating with guest artists and would only require a short rehearsal at some point before the ceremony to insure everything goes smoothly.
Can you perform a special piece of music or selection that is not on your frequently requested list?
Yes, we have several professional composers and arrangers within Tryos Ensemble and we are happy to arrange a special piece of music for your event. If it is a rare piece or extremely complex there may be a small fee for the arrangement.
Will trumpets and keyboard be too loud for cocktail hour?
Tryos ensemble can effectively play cocktail hour at any volume. For small intimate spaces, often the trumpets can play on more mellow sounding flugelhorns or with mutes. The pianist will be able to adjust to an appropriate volume for any setting as well.
How do I choose music for the ceremony?
Often people start by taking a look at the frequently requested music selections at the top of the page, just to get an idea of what they might like. We would also be happy to discuss and recommend other selections not necessarily listed to fit your musical taste and style.
How many pieces should I choose for a processional?
Generally there are two pieces performed for a processional. First is a wedding party processional, then a different piece for the main processional. We are able to adjust the music length as we watch the ceremony so that we will line up with all the entrances. Occasionally there are factors that require more or less than two selections for a processional such as specific religious customs.
Will you attend the wedding rehearsal?
We generally do not attend the rehearsal. We have a great deal of experience playing weddings and will always make contact with either the officiant or wedding coordinator before the wedding to make sure we have all our cues set. If you would really like us present at the rehearsal, we are usually able to accommodate but for an extra fee.
Do you perform at wedding receptions?
Tryos Ensemble has a wide variety of selections spanning classical, pop, show tunes, and jazz that would be appropriate for a cocktail hour. We will be sure to adjust our musical selections and volume to perfectly match the needs of the reception.
Do we need to meet in person?
All the music details can be set up by phone and email, but should you wish to do so we are happy to meet with you.
How much do you charge?
Our fee varies for every event and depends on many factors. Please don't hesitate to send us a message about your event and we will be happy to give you a price quote.
