The Addison offers solo and ensemble music for wedding ceremonies and special occasions. We love to play Classical and Romantic favorites as well as jazz, pop, and fiddle tunes. The Addison will help make your event memorable. Emily Sunderman coordinates musicians and can offer solo violin, violin – cello or violin – piano duets or even a string quartet.
The Addison is based in Vermont and is willing to travel to the Adirondacks and within New England.
We are happy to play indoors or outside as long as we are under a tent if it is precipitating or above 80 degrees in the hot sun. Our fingers are too cold to play for more than a few minutes if it below 60 degrees outside. We generally don’t need amplification to play, but we can amplify, if required.
Below are some examples of music The Addison has recently offered for weddings. We are happy to arrange and play your favorite songs as well as selections from the list below.
