Calling all newly engaged couples about to embark on the excitement of wedding plans!
First and foremost, we are delighted to welcome you to our blog! For our first post, we would like to take the opportunity to explain who we are and what we do. Our trio was formed in 2017 and began mainly as a wedding trio, liaising with newly engaged couples beginning to research and finalise their wedding plans. We began performing around Cork, but this now expanded throughout Munster, Leinster and even has had us travelling as far as Co. Galway! Over the last number of years, we have branched out into performing at all kinds of events under the sun. We have been lucky enough to perform at events in the presence of revered guests such as President Michael D. Higgins and Mícheál Martin and have now built up a great deal of experience in performing in many varying and contrasting environments.
We like to work closely with clients to ensure their day is accompanied with the most fitting music and is exactly what they imagined. As we are well accustomed to the planning aspects, we can provide running orders and templates for events to help with the organisation. Many of our wonderful engaged couples have given requests in the past, and although initially many people are concerned that it may be adding to our workload, we are MORE than happy to accommodate individual requests and put together arrangements of whatever is required! After all, it is your day, and you should have exactly what you desire! We even had the opportunity to perform many mainly themed setlists such as Disney, metal, movies and 90’s pop rock – which as expected were exceptionally enjoyable to perform!
We are all educated and trained professional musicians with extensive backgrounds in education and performance. This background gives us the capabilities to arrange and put together versions of songs and pieces to suit our clients and allows us to have a huge catalogue under our belts. As we love performing, we always come equipped with extra music we can perform before an event to entertain guests as they arrive.
We hope you enjoy perusing our site and would recommend checking out our repertoire lists for an example of the style of music we perform. We would like to stress that we are not confined to only the music you see here in our repertoire lists! These are purely just a small number of examples from wedding plans and events we have performed to give an idea of what we do, but we are happy to take all suggestions and requests. Also be sure to have a look at our gallery to see some of the wonderful venues we have had the chance to perform at in the last few years, and our recordings page to hear some live performance clips.
Be sure to drop us a line via email at any time for more information or to enquire about a booking date to see how we fit into your wedding plans!! 😊
Thanks for stopping by,
Cascade String Trio
