ABOUT ARIOSO

Professional Musicians
Arioso Chamber Players was formed by a group of professional musicians who are committed to providing a classical touch to your wedding or special event. The musicians have performed in churches, synagogues, country clubs, public gardens, outdoor gazebos, at fine restaurants, and at specialized wedding locations including afloat on a yacht and at the beach at Cape Cod. In addition, they have performed for formal wedding ceremonies of every religious affiliation in the New England area, and have been able to consistently provide personalized musical settings for those ceremonies with a repertoire that includes everything from Handel and Mozart to Gershwin, and can be tailored to your special event with musical pieces of your choosing.
