A String Duo will play the Classical music pieces that you will know and love from the best Classical composers ever!
What exactly will a String Duo do at your event?
When you hire a String Duo, you can expect a cellist and a violinist to play famous music from the Classical period which will cover composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky, Brahms and more! A String Duet is a perfect way to hire live Classical musicians if you don’t have much room at your venue, or if you simply want a lightweight version of a String Quartet.
The beauty of a live String Duo, is that with just the cello and the violin, they can produce a deep and varied range of sounds with just the two instruments!
When you hire a String Duo, you may be hearing Classical pieces such as 'The Magic Flute' by Mozart, parts of the 'Four Seasons' by Vivaldi, 'Ave Maria' by Schubert and sections of 'Symphony No.9' by Beethoven! You can also expect your hired String Duo to cover well known hits from the modern era! That’s right! When you hire a String Duo, they can also play Classical versions of famous pop hits spanning the past 60 years of chart music!
Mainly, a String Duo will entertain your audience with a fantastic live show that will put the wow factor into celebrations and impress your guests, whatever their entertainment tastes may be.
What event types are String Duos hired for?
Book a String Duo for Wedding Entertainment:
Wedding Ceremony Entertainment:
What better way is there to celebrate such a special moment than by hiring a String Duet for your wedding ceremony?! A String Duo can play as your guests enter the wedding hall, creating a beautiful atmosphere that will make all of your family and friends feel relaxed. Then, the hired String Duo can play romantic pieces from the Classical period as the bride walks down the aisle! This is a moment that will forever be special to the bride and groom, and a hired String Duo will really make the bride's entrance extra personal! A String Duo can also play an uplifting piece as the newlyweds and their guests leave the wedding venue!
Wedding Drinks Reception Entertainment:
As mentioned, the great thing about hiring a String Duo is that they are mobile and can therefore move around from venue to venue on your special day! A String Duo can play Classical music live as the wedding photographer is snapping away and the champagne is being served. A cellist and a violinist can be set up to provide stimulating background music inside or outside (Weather permitting!)
Wedding Breakfast Entertainment:
As the guests are greeted into the main hall by the newlyweds, the hired String Duo can be set up to play orchestral compositions and pop hits of your choice. The String Duo of a cello and a violin will create a relaxed mood which will help bring a sense of calm before the wedding speeches are read!
Wedding Evening Reception Entertainment:
If you’re looking for a powerful and exciting form of entertainment for your wedding evening reception, then you may want to hire a String Duo! A String Duo can perform anything from Classical, Jazz, Pop and even Rock! Such is the versatility of the String Duo, that you can submit song requests to most of the String Duos via the personal messaging service on Entertainersworldwide.com and they will hopefully be able to accommodate you!
Book a String Duo for Corporate Event Entertainment
If you are organising the entertainment for a corporate function, then you may want to think about hiring a String Duo to play at your event! A live String Duo would be fantastic entertainment for your organisation because whilst sounding extremely professional, orchestral instruments also act as brilliant background music. This means that your colleagues and clients can gossip and schmooze without being interrupted by loud music!
Orchestral instruments such as the violin and the cello are ideal for corporate events such as gala dinners, annual work functions such as an end of financial year party, or a Christmas party.
Are you looking for music entertainment for your art gallery or product launch? A String Duo will enchant your clients and create a perfect ambience for such an environment!

Your party will be the definition of sophistication with a violinist and a cellist helming the entertainment. You can hire a String Duo to play at any party you may be hosting. Whether it’s a birthday party, an anniversary, or a cocktail party, a hired violinist and cellist is just what you need!
How much do String Duos cost to hire?
Our simple to use entertainment directory allows you to firstly search for the best String Duos who are local (or travel to your area) and then via the contact form you may message them directly to enquire for a no obligation quote to perform at your event. Some acts will also add a rough price guide to their profile for your convenience.
What are the usual set formats and performance lengths for String Duos?
A String Duo can tailor their performance times to suit you and your event, however, on average a professional String Duo will perform for two hours.
How much space will a String Duo need at your event?
Another upside of hiring a String Duo is that they will take up minimal space! A violinist and a cellist will need a space of roughly 2 meters wide and 3 meters deep.
What equipment and set up requirements do String Duos need?
As with most artists who sign up to Entertainersworldwide.com, a String Duo will provide all of their own equipment. You may want to enquire if an artist needs a PA to amplify their sound, in which case we would advise to use our easy to use messaging service to find out. We do ask that each performer gets a backstage area in which they can prepare for the performance ahead. If your venue does not have a backstage area, then we kindly ask that you enquire with the venue to seek an alternative space in which the performer can comfortably get ready to entertain.
