Forte is a great choice for your live ceremony/cocktail hour music! We have several different rate options for your music! Please choose what you feel will best suit the needs of your wedding atmosphere from our options below.
Solo - $150 (Violin or Cello)
Duet - $300 (Violin & Cello)
Trio - $450 (Violin, Viola & Cello)
Quartet - $600 (Oboe, Violin, Viola & Cello or 2 Violins, Viola & Cello)
All of our prices include up to an hour and fifteen minutes of our time as needed. This is plenty of time for a 15 minute prelude, ceremony and if guests are still present, a postlude as well. We find that most of our weddings fall within this timeframe, but if more than 75 minutes is needed, we do prorate in 15 minute increments as necessary.
We DO NOT require a deposit to hold your wedding date. If you are interested in booking us, then I can email our contract. All we ask is that you sign it and then return it to me as a PDF attachment via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also snail mail me 2 signed copies if that is more convenient (address upon request). Once we receive your contract, your date will be reserved. We will let you know when we get the contract. If you do plan to book with us (and are mailing in your contract), an email is appreciated so that we know to begin looking for your contract. Please note that we do not hold dates without signed contracts in hand.
We understand that your wedding is unique and you will be looking for music that represents you as a couple and that will fit the atmosphere of your wedding. Because of this, we offer a private individualized music selection experience for every local couple when schedules allow. Included in our rate is a complimentary music consultation where you can come to one of our rehearsals and we will help you pick out your wedding music. You will get to hear every piece that will be played during your wedding and will be able to make choices that fit you and your aesthetic. We have hundreds of songs in our repertoire ranging from the very traditional Bach and Pachelbel to the more unique tastes of Lady Gaga, Coldplay and Queen. You may bring anyone you like with you to this appointment. It is a unique experience that sets us apart from the other groups. Want to see if your favorite song is on our list? Feel free to visit our website www.fortequartet.org and look under our "Recommendations" tab.
Wondering which ensemble to choose? If you are looking for a Classical and Elegant feel to your event, any of our ensemble choices will be a great choice. We have plenty of music to accommodate your ceremony and prelude for any ensemble choice. If you are looking for more of a modern feel with choices from our modern song list, please choose our trio or quartet ensemble.
If you'd like to hear samples of our work, you may hear some on our website: www.fortequartet.org under our "Samples" tab. At this time we only have samples of our Quartet Ensemble. We also have videos on our You Tube Channel! There you can see the difference between our Trio and Quartet sounds.
