Strings and Trumpet

Interested in adding a trumpet?

A trumpet can be added to either a quartet or trio.  We have connections with some talented trumpet players in the Atlanta area, and would be glad to book one for you.  When inquiring about rates, please be sure to mention that you'd like a trumpet also so our manager can give you an accurate quote.

What is a fanfare?

A fanfare is an introduction where the trumpet player plays by himself for a few bars.  This can be done with any piece, and is particularly dramatic for the bride's processional.  The trumpet plays the fanfare, and when the main piece starts with the other instruments, the bride starts down the aisle.
