Magic Flute Wedding Musicians(some shown above) are all fine, professional, experienced musicians
who are music teachers, orchestral members, symphonic
band members and successful free lancers who play for
weddings and special events. As well as being

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY We arrive 1-1.5 hours early in order to get to your wedding in time to
tune up and get situated. No worries, we
have done this hundreds of times. I (or the lead
musician) will speak with your officiant to make sure
we are on the same page with the sequence of events if
I haven't already called and spoken to him or her.
The prelude music begins 1/2 hour before your wedding
ceremony time. Then we play the processionals: music for your Moms
if you desire; then the bridal party and you, the bride.
a sand ceremony or unity candle is in the service we
play light short music as it happens quickly and your officiant will be speaking; after
your officiant or pastor/priest/rabbi introduces you as
Mr. and Mrs. we begin to the the recessional(s).
Please let us know if you are having a receiving line,
as we will play longer. We work closely with you

phone, but due to the busy schedules of our musicians,
it is difficult to play live for you. You can,
however, visit another wedding at which we are
"The Gift of Love", Flute and Harp

deserve the best for your
special day? We do not undercut other hard
working musicians. Our fees are the going rate.
