A professional choral ensemble creates a joyous, elegant atmosphere for your special event. Members of the Oriana Consort are available in small ensembles to perform sacred or secular a cappella choral music at your wedding ceremony, memorial service, holdiay gathering, or other event. Voices raised in harmony at your celebration will be extra memorable for your guests, and will leave them deeply moved.
We offer a wide range of styles, including works by popular composers Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre, Randall Thompson, and Frank Ticheli; classical composers J.S. Bach, Mendelssohn, Benjamin Britten, and Samuel Barber; and we would be happy to discuss your special request.
Please contact Caroline Harvey, Assistant Director & Accompanist for the Oriana Consort at email@example.com to inquire after our availability. Our rates are very affordable and help offset our operating costs. We truly enjoy providing music for your event and consider the experience to be an invaluable reward.
