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!

They played classical to the Beatles!!!
THRILLED!! We loved our string trio from Corda Entertainment!! We had several guests in attendance who are also string musicians and they had glowing compliments for us to pass along to this group. Our string trio played our ceremony with classical music we chose from their vast list of options. Then they played our cocktail hour which we requested to be upbeat. They played everything from classic jazz to The Beatles and beyond, our guests were thrilled and so were we. 10 out of 10!!Sent on 01/02/2021
Corda Entertainment's reply:It was our pleasure! Thank you Amanda for your kind comments. We are thrilled to hear that everyone enjoyed it.

Provided music for wedding
Corda stepped in at the last minute when another vendor let us down. Allison worked with my daughter to make sure the songs were exactly what we wanted. We received so many compliments from our guests! Highly recommend the professionals at Corda. They add elegance to any event.Sent on 11/23/2020

Team of Corda Entertainment
Corda Entertainment owner, violinist
In 1997, I formed a company called Corda Entertainment that specializes in performing fine classical 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.
