Hire an Orchestra for a Wedding

Do you want to hire an orchestra for a wedding or a string ensemble?

Some people were confused between an orchestra and a string ensemble.

An orchestra is a large instrumental ensemble typical of classical music, which mixes instruments from different families, including bowed string instruments such as violin, viola, cello and double. That means an orchestra comprises of many musician and is often overkill for a wedding.

Most weddings usually only require a small group of 3 or 4 musicians called string ensembles to play at the events.

The string quartet ensemble is the original choice for weddings and special events. Comprising of four musicians- 2 violins, viola and cello, the sound is rich, dynamic, full and harmonious.


The string trio ensemble is our most popular ensemble. It is a flexible ensemble comprising of 2 violins and 1 cello, suitable for all venues and spaces. The sound of the trio is similar to the quartet, although with one less instrument (usually the viola) is slightly softer, however usually more than adequate for weddings and receptions.


Sydney Ensemble is a trio / quartet of professional string musicians who perform at a wide range of functions and celebrations.
