Troika String Quartet A string quartet, trio, or duo provides a sophisticated and lively atmosphere for weddings, corporate events or private functions. Whether you require a string orchestra or a solo violinist. Troika Strings can supply your musical requirements. Our players have played in professional orchestras throughout the world, and played to the acclaim of artists such as jazz legend Stephane Grappelli. We have provided musical entertainment in the Auckland region for almost 20 years and built a reputation for quality and reliability. Weddings From a Wedding Breakfast to a drinks reception, Troika Strings will provide a musical backdrop for your wedding. The most important part of the day is of course the wedding ceremony, where you will probably want to choose music for:the Bride's entrance the signing of the register the Bride and Groom's exit Tastes vary; some people love popular while others are more traditional, but pieces such as Handel'sEntrance of the Queen of Sheba or Elgar'sSalut d'Amour remain perenial favourites.
You can listen to recordings of popular wedding pieces on the previous page (the traditional pieces are tracks 9 to 18).
Although a String Quartet is the most popular group for weddings, a String Trio or even Duo is an alternative. A smaller group will not sound as loud as a larger one, so if you are planning an outdoor service, you might want to seat the musicians by a wall (which will reflect the sound). Also remember that the group will need shelter from the sun (or rain!).
