Ceremony Music

INFO FOR CEREMONY MUSIC

What ceremony music arrangements can you provide?
Instrumental - Duo, Instrumental - Solo
What instruments does your group play?
Piano, Violin
What is your usual attire?
Customarily, I dress in black semi-formal attire, but I am open to adjusting my dress to any tasteful requests.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Sample live videos are coming soon to my website! I am also happy to provide references from recent brides.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Fortunately, the violin is very portable. I bring my own music stand and I prefer to stand to play, so setup time is about 2 minutes. I arrive at a venue early to give myself time to find the optimal location for setup - a spot where the music is heard well and I can see the wedding participants easily so that I can time my music to the activities perfectly!
How much space do you usually require?
I can tuck in to almost any location. I stand to play violin, so I am very flexible.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
I charge for travel more than 30 miles outside of Savannah. Usually, I charge $25 to $45 for a round trip, depending on the distance.

Kelly helped personalize our wedding and was able to capture exactly what we are hoping to achieve with her beautiful piano playing. She is not only exceptionally talented, she is also a gem to work with. As an out of state Bride I assumed such decisions would be difficult but after one conversation I knew Kelly was exactly who I was looking for. I cannot say enough positive things about her nor are 5 stars adequate! She was a dream come true!

Being an out of town bride, I had my share of being extremely stressed about the wedding. Luckily I had Kelly who even though is a few hundred miles away, was able to calm me down an assure me everything would be perfect... and she was right! She was extremely prompt and professional and the guests all enjoyed her music. Kelly is also a sweetheart and if I had to do it all again, I would involve Kelly in a heartbeat!!!

Kelly did such a wonderful job playing the violin at our wedding ceremony! As I (the bride) arrived on the trolley at Whitefield Square, I couldn't help but notice how beautiful the music was. It truly made our ceremony a dream come true. She even played several songs after the ceremony as we were taking pictures, which was a beautiful.
Kelly was very professional and kind throughout the whole planning process. She was willing to play any kind of music and offered me so many options and choices. As an out of town bride and groom, we were very lucky to have found her. We were so very pleased with everything. We could not have asked for a better violinist to play for our special day. I would highly recommend her for any kind of event!

One of my favorite moments was stepping off of the trolley in Monterey Square and hearing Kelly and her violin. She is an amazing talent. She even learned a contemporary song that I wanted to have my bridesmaids walk down the aisle to....I can still hear Nessun Dorma...just beautiful:-)

Kelly was great, very responsive and helpful. She sat down with me and helped me really decide which music suited our wedding the best, and was willing to play some songs that were not the usual wedding selections. She had some great tips and really knew our venue (Whitefield Chapel) so that was extremely helpful. A wonderfully nice person, not to mention a professional, experienced pianist.

Thank you, Nick, for your kind words. It was easy to work with you, as you and your bride were so very organized and had a good sense of how you envisioned your ceremony! Your wedding was lovely and I know that all of your guests (both those invited and the other 200 or so folks in Forsythe Park who couldn't help but listen in) truly enjoyed your wedding!

Kelly played the violin at our daughter's wedding. Her experience with working with other mothers of brides was apparent in the stress-free atmosphere she created. The music was lovely and she was a pleasure to work with.

Thank you, Teresa! I enjoyed working with you and putting your mind at ease. As it turns out, my own son is about to get married and so I will be experiencing some of that "mother of the groom" feeling myself very shortly. I only hope that my son's wedding will be as lovely as the wedding you created for your daughter!

I got married in the Chapel at Palmetto Bluff on October 16, 2010, and Kelly was our solo violinist for the ceremony. She did an amazing job and is someone my husband and I would highly recommend. Kelly is not only incredibly talented and experienced but also warm, personable, responsive and user-friendly. From our very first conversation, Kelly set me at ease and I knew she was someone I could count on and who would do an excellent job. Her ability to make very helpful suggestions about how to tailor music for a tiny chapel as well as perform superbly without even needing to attend the wedding rehearsal is a testament to her extensive wedding and musical experience. Our wedding ceremony just wouldn't have been the same without Kelly and I would highly recommend her to any bride and groom.

Thank you, Michelle and Markus, for your lovely comments. Could there have been a more perfect day for your beautiful wedding in Palmetto Bluff? The weather, the setting, the guests, the bride...all stunning! I am looking forward to playing another wedding in the same chapel in a few weeks and I know that I am going to enjoy doing so. Good luck to you both!

Kelly was an absolute joy to work with! My husband and I coordinated our wedding by ourselves, so we really appreciated Kelly's thoughtful suggestions on music and ceremony arrangement. She was even able to learn a special song that we had picked out for the ceremony. Kelly plays the piano beautifully, and she is such a warm, kind person. We are so happy that she was able to be part of our day!

With less than 1 month's notice of my wedding day, I luckily found Kelly Burke! Her reply to my inquiry was instant, and quote for services a true value!! Kelly was kind enough to meet me at our venue to not only know in advance the layout of the property but also to make sure she knew the noise level as we were holding an outdoor ceremony. She is more than a professional, as she took a very personal approach to making sure everything was perfect and I, as the Bride, was calm and without worry. The song suggestions and personal assistance to thinking of every last detail for how the music ceremony would flow were all wonderful! If there's anything negative I could say about hiring Kelly for our wonderful day, would be my regret in missing out on hearing her beautiful music for the hour she played following our ceremony for the wedding party photo session. I can't wait to get copies of video! :o)
Thank you Kelly! You truly added a lovely touch of class to our perfect day.

I found the information regarding Burke Music Studio through Craig's list which made it very easy to find her services. Miss Kelly promptly returned my phone call and answered all of the questions that I had. She was EXTREMELY courteous, friendly, and polite (so much so that it left me with a wonderful first impression of her and her business without having had met her, yet). Once we finally met, on the eve of the event, Miss Kelly was very punctual and never complained or made a frown about us being 15 minutes late. During the rehearsal, she volunteered some suggestions based on her past experiences which were VERY much appreciated as it would ensure a perfect plan for our occasion. Finally, on the day of the event, although it poured down rain and the event was outside, Miss Kelly played beautifully (in the rain) and her music complimented the wedding to make it perfect.
I typically evaluate quite harshly, but my experience with Burke Music Studio FAR SURPASSED my expectation level and Miss Kelly went above and beyond to make sure the wedding was a memorable day. I would, without a doubt, recommend Miss Kelly and her services to any event where you want to hear a beautiful violinist play.
