Aviento offers various ensemble options for you to create the musical experience you envisage for your event.
The size of your venue, the number of guests and your key song music choices will also influence your choice.
Violin & Cello
A perfect option for intimate weddings, our violin and cello duo will provide ambience without overwhelming smaller venues. This group offers a broad range of repertoire from classical to pop, and if you plan to walk down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon this ensemble works beautifully. Please do check with us if you have a special song in mind before booking a duo.
Two Violins & Cello
A trio is a like the string quartet without the viola, producing a slightly softer yet still full tone. Several of our audio demo tracks on our Listen to Us page were recorded using a trio. Trios are very popular for wedding ceremonies, and most of our repertoire can be easily adapted for this group’s formation.
Two Violins, Viola & Cello
Our largest and most requested group is a quartet of two violins, one viola and one cello. We are shown in this formation in the video and photos on our website. A quartet produces a loud, rich sound with harmonic depth and dimension. Any of the songs we offer on our Repertoire List can be played by a quartet.

A beautiful alternative to the classical string sound is the use of a flute in the group. Normally we recommend replacing one violin with the flute in each of our groups, giving a mix of flute and strings. There are several examples of flute and strings on our Listen to Us page.
