Cambridge Sonesta Hotel String Trio Wedding

Becky and Brian enjoyed a perfect wedding day at the Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge.

The ceremony was held in the ballroom which overlooks the Charles River. It has a fantastic view! Becky chose the string trio combination of violin, viola and cello. Even though the room was large, everyone could hear us without amplification.

The processionals were Bach “Air” for the grandmothers and mothers, Sheep May Safely Graze for the bridesmaids and Pachelbel “Canon” for the bride. The room has a long aisle so we were able to play large portions of each piece. I recommend fewer processionals when the aisle is short because frequent music changes make the songs sound choppy.

The recessional was Alla Hornpipe from The Water Music by Handel. It’s an upbeat piece that makes a happy end to ceremonies. Becky wanted old jazz standards, Frank Sinatra songs, tangos, and Broadway show tunes for the cocktail hour. I think this music sounds great on strings.

Austin Horn is the event coordinator at the Sonesta and he was a pleasure to work with.
