The live music that fits your wedding ceremony

The music played by Gipsy Ensemble Kalinka at wedding masses is a mixed classical / gypsy repertoire in its original form: during the mass violin music of Vivaldi is played in combination with some lighter music, like "La vie en rose" immediately after the couple says “I do”. After the communion the musicians move discretely to the back of the church, and to complete the celebration they suddenly play cheerful gypsy music so that everybody leaves the church in a lighthearted mood.

A wedding ceremony at the city hall usually passes as follows:

  • First there is some happy welcome music while the guests and the couple enter the room.

  • During the ceremony the ensemble provides a musical intermezzo.

  • The cheerful gypsy music at the end makes everybody feel ready to party.

The choice of the repertoire depends on the marrying couple: they choose songs from the different musical styles provided.
