Perfect Ceremony and Cocktail Hour Music
Corda Entertainment was perfect for our small outdoor wedding! Their music is elegant and smooth and the perfect fit for a romantic and intimate setting. We used Corda Entertainment for our ceremony and cocktail hour music and can't say enough good things! The guests loved that the music was soft and beautiful but not overbearing when trying to mingle with guests during cocktail hour and not to overtake the ceremony! Thank you so much for being such a special part of our day and helping to bring our vision to life! It was perfect!Sent on 10/05/2020
Corda Entertainment's reply:Thank you Talia! We are so happy you were pleased and it met all of your expectations. We were so happy to be a part of your very special day. All the best to you and Alex!

The Perfect Touch!
We had our Raleigh wedding in June 2021 and could not have asked for a better experience. Through COVID, I think we planned half a dozen different weddings as things kept falling through or changing. We ended up coming to Corda Entertainment fairly close to the event, and they helped us through everything without a hitch. We hired a string duo that was absolutely perfect for our 40 person ceremony and reception. Their prices were very reasonable, and they were even able to add two specific songs for our first dance and recessional for a small fee. The musicians were super skilled and professional day-of, and we got rave reviews from guests about how much the live music added to our experience. I am SO glad we went with Corda Entertainment instead of a DJ - I recommend them to anyone who wants to add that special, romantic, and intimate/personal touch to their event!Sent on 07/07/2021
Corda Entertainment's reply:Thank you Hannah! We are so glad we could provide you with that special touch that made the music so perfect for you and your guests. We were very happy to be a part of your special day!

Corda Entertainment owner, violinist
In 1997, I formed a company called Corda Entertainment that specializes in performing fine classical music to Contemporary music for weddings and receptions throughout the Piedmont Triad and surrounding areas of North Carolina. As Assistant Principal Second Violin with The Greensboro Symphony, I am able to collaborate with Greensboro's most talented, professional musicians to bring you exquisite music of all types for your special event. Corda, meaning "string" in Italian, emphasizes what we do best - string combinations of all kinds.
Nothing beats live music at a wedding ceremony! It is always a pleasure to work with Corda Entertainment during a ceremony. They are easy to discuss the ceremony with, knowing exactly how and when to extend their play if necessary or to fade out at the right times. Their professionalism and musical skills are awesome.
Very professional and amazing!!
Corda Entertainment is great to work with. Very professional, punctual and reliable. Not to mention beautiful music! I highly recommend to my clients.
