Is amplification needed?
Yet another important question that must be addressed! We are so fortunate to have our own in house experienced sound engineer Randy Burlingame. Please read his bio on our website under bride/groom resources. Over the years he has provided Duo con Brio and their clients the most professional and cost effective services possible. When deciding to use a sound engineer first one must understand that they provide a different service from a DJ. His job to amplify both the musicians, officiant, bride, groom, and any speakers at the ceremony. Additionally a sound engineer remains for the wedding service to address any issues with wind, or feed back. They do not leave once the equipment is set up. Our general advice is that hiring a sound engineer provides you with ultimate control over the sound quality, levels, etc. It is very important, if possible to use a sound engineer. Exceptions to this would be certain small indoor venues such as Oaks Pioneer Church. Hope this helps. Happy Wedding to all!

What size ensemble should I book?
The size of an ensemble is an important question for any event! One way to address the question is based on the types of sound each group provides. The Violin & Cello duo provides a clean, pure, and simplified sound; while the string trio has a quality of distinction and complexity. The string quartet (our most versatile ensemble) provides the listener with a fuller, richer, and multi-voiced experience. Equally important is the venue itself. If the event is outside any of the ensembles will work beautifully but may need the assistance of our sound engineer. Indoor venues vary do to ambiance of the space. When one of our ensembles performs for a cocktail or reception, amplification really is necessary. Ultimately the decision on size of ensemble is a personal one. Listen to our groups on our demo page and pick the sound that touches you!
