Return to Previous Page

The Chapel Hill Duo is a versatile violin and cello duo with a large repertoire that includes light classical favourites, a wide range of contemporary pop covers and traditional Celtic tunes. The group is popular choice for weddings, drinks receptions and corporate events.

" Violin and Cello duo presenting contemporary arrangements of classical, pop and folk tunes."

The duo has developed its own style and puts an original twist on every song played. With a repertoire that covers pop, celtic folk and popular film music, the group can taylor the performance to any taste or theme and are equally at home performing at weddings, dinners or corporate events.

A wedding is a very special event and the Chapel Hill Duo works very closely with couples to make each ceremony a personal and unique occasion. If you have a particular song you would like played that is not in the repertoire, for a small additional fee, Sarah will create a special arrangement if yousend her a link to the YouTube video of the song. At small events, the group provides an acoustic performance and can perform outside if the weather is suitable. A PA system is available for larger venues.

    “I like everything!! You dealt with our arrangements professionally and promptly, you did a fab job of the song composed of our choice and the music throughout the day was wonderful (I’m just sad I was off having photos and missed some of it!).”

    I really can’t praise you both enough. You really did make our day that exta special, and so many of our friends and family agreed.

    The only bit I was disappointed with was that we didn’t book you to play in the garden longer as time just flew by and we could have listened to you play all day.

    Thank you so much guys”
