Classical Wedding Musicians

Our classical music acts for weddings and functions want your event to be enjoyed by everyone – not just the purists, who'll love the array of Purcell, Debussy, Vivaldi, Elgar and Pachelbel they perform. More casual listeners will be rewarded with such instantly recognisable and beloved pieces as the themes from Blackadder, Harry Potter, Psycho and Star Wars, and the popular songs of Michael Jackson, Guns N' Roses, Fleetwood Mac and Lady Gaga.

Don't worry – you don't have to hire the entire Philharmonic Orchestra in order to have live classical music played at your event. Bands for Hire makes a point of remaining flexible and accommodating in every situation, and we have therefore made a range of different acts available to suit different venue and budget requirements. We have string quartets (which traditionally feature a cello, a viola and two violins), vocal duos (whose luscious harmonies are set to backing tracks) and solo instrumentalists including violinists, harpists, classical pianists and classical guitarists. Read on to find out which of our may wonderful classical music acts would best suit your event – and please feel free to contact us for any further information on bookings.

Hire Classical Musicians for Weddings and Events

Classical music is for many the height of culture – the result of thousands of years of studying, perfecting and developing ideas that influence the majority of music produced to this day. Some of history's greatest minds belonged to such classical composers as Bach, Mozart and Beethoven – many of whom remain household names. Our classical music acts are honoured to be able to play some of the most respected and famous compositions of all time, and are delighted to be able to share them with audiences who appreciate them for the works of art they are.
