Organic Quartet Exude Class at Melbourne Wedding Ceremonies

Rachel Chipp

The sound of Pachelbel’s ‘Canon in D’ being played by violins has become synonymous with wedding ceremonies. The popularity of this combined choice of music and instruments is due to the beauty and romance evoked by the harmonious blend between the two. There is an elegance to the sound that conjures the image of a bride making her way down the aisle and as the music gathers pace, it beautifully conveys all the emotions swirling in the air.

Pachelbel originally wrote ‘Canon in D’ to be played by three violinists to provide the melody together with a basso continuo in the background. As a Melbourne-based string quartet, consisting of three violinists and a cellist, Organic Quartet form this perfect combination to wonderfully capture the magic of the original intention of the composition. Each violin joins in to add extra wondrous layers that playfully overlap.

If you are planning a more unconventional Melbourne wedding, Organic Quartet can even get creative with ‘Canon in D’ to blend it with The Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ in a unique mashup that they have named ‘Bittersweet Canon’!

This is what makes Organic Quartet so special. They have the ability to play classical music by composers such as Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Handel and Vivaldi. This selection of music adds such class, style and serenity to a wedding ceremony. In addition, they can also turn their hand to an array of pop songs and classic songs from movies which allows you to create a fun atmosphere at your wedding ceremony with a harmonious blend of instruments playing songs that mean something special to you.

Organic Quartet’s pop song choices include a mixture of modern and timeless classics, including ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams and ‘The Rose’ by Bette Midler. They can even display their amazing skills on the strings by playing ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ by Guns N’ Roses!

Their film selection includes Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ from Twilight, ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and their absolutely stunning version of ‘Moon River’. The romantic emotion carried throughout this song will bring tears to your eyes as you get swept away by the mesmerising sound that Organic Quartet creates.

If you are planning a Christmas wedding in Melbourne, Organic Quartet can even add Christmas classics to the mix, including ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’, ‘Let it Snow’, ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘Sleigh Ride’.

If it’s the sound of strings you are seeking for your wedding day, either to play classical music or strings with a twist, performing a diverse range of pop, jazz, tango, Christmas songs and even your favourite movie theme song, Organic Quartet can’t wait to be the ones to set the tone to your Melbourne wedding ceremony.
