We loved Duo con Brio. Meeting with Corey to pick out music for our wedding ceremony and reception was a complete joy. We wished we could have sat talking music all night! The atmosphere they created at our wedding was classy, elegant and appreciated by all. They were completely professional and self sufficient on the day of our wedding, so we could truly enjoy the day and the music.
If you're looking for musicians for any event, I would highly recommend Duo con Brio!

We were very pleased with the live music performance of Duo Con Brio at our wedding ceremony. It made the event more intimate and elegant. I was unsure what music to choose for the aisle walk and Corey did a wonderful job of selecting music that fit my needs. Hands down they were one of the best ways we spent our wedding budget and I highly recommend their services!

Corey at Duo Con Brio was a pleasure to work with. We decided last minute that we wanted a string trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour at our wedding. We contacted Corey at Duo Con Brio about 3 weeks before our wedding and he was able to schedule us in and have a face to face meeting with him where he assisted us in picking music for our ceremony. It was beautiful and a huge hit, these are very classy and talented musicians!

Corey and his group played our Wedding on July 1st of 2013 and they were fantastic. They traveled to our venue which was in Hood River with no problem, set up and playing well before we were ready to walk down the aisle. They took our music requests and accommodated them spectacularly. Corey was very prompt and courteous on the phone and gave us his feedback after we told him the musical tone we were going for. We would highly recommend Duo Con Brio for any event you may need their services for. Thank you Corey!

Having Duo Con Brio at our wedding was the ideal way to top off a fun, classy, and enjoyable day... They were friendly, responsive, flexible, and the music was better than we imagined. If you are looking for a memorable experience of your life (as it was for me- us), without all the insanity of a DJ- I would recommend them (and I very rarely find services worth rating this highly).

Corey and Janet played at my wedding and they were wonderful. I had specific requests for my processional musical arrangements and Corey and Janet learned the arrangement and played it beautifully. I live in DC and was planning the wedding from here and Corey played the music for me over the phone so I could hear it prior to the wedding. He was so easy to work with. Corey is responsive,reliable, professional, and very talented. I cannot thank him and Janet enough for making my wedding day so special. I would recommend Corey and his team to any bride that is looking for ceremony musicians.

Communication for planning and payment was expedited via email and telephone responsiveness. Their beautiful musical artistry provided the perfect soundtrack for our setting and ceremony. I highly recommend them with total confidence.

Our guests loved their music and even our daughters' piano teacher was very impressed. We also hired Duo Con Brio for the wedding rehearsal which worked out really well -- the wedding party was very relaxed on the wedding day itself.

From the classics to more modern songs such as Falling Slowly, the Married Life theme from Up!, and Viva la Vida, everything was performed beautifully.

Corey and Janet played our ceremony music and provided everything you ever hope for from musicians. They arrived early, were prepared for the hot sunshine and provided great alternatives (where it would be better for them to sit and that it might be better to amplify (even though it wasn't arranged ahead of time)). They had everything they needed, worked well with the dj and site, and had the mostly lovely music while guests were being seated and during the ceremony. Absolutely worth the money and such a classy touch. Corey and Janet are professional musicians with professional touches. You can't go wrong.

Duo Con Brio was an excellent choice for our ceremony music. They played all the songs we wanted and were really skilled in choosing music that went with the vibe we were going for. We asked if they could play Autumn Leaves, and they hadn’t before. But instead of saying “no” Corey listened to the song (on piano and sax) and was able to translate it into violin and cello. It was amazing! We actually didn’t hear the song when it was played since they played it while the guests were arriving, so we mentioned it to them, and they played it again just for us (literally, everyone else was somewhere else eating) after the ceremony. They also were just very pleasurable to work with.

Duo con Brio was the first vendor we chose. Their web site allowed us to hear their gorgeous music in advance and completely sold us on having a string duo for our ceremony and the cocktail hour before the reception.

Duo con Brio was the first vendor we chose. Their web site allowed us to hear their gorgeous music in advance and completely sold us on having a string duo for our ceremony and the cocktail hour before the reception.

HIRE THIS BAND!!

First of all, Duo Con Brio was wonderful! But I'll start by saying the few things that went wrong.

I'm not sure whose fault this is, mine or theirs, but they started playing MY song as the flower girls were walking down the aisle... instead of waiting for me. That was a little heartbreaking, but it was really the only big thing that went wrong at the wedding. I didn't even mention it to them, because it could very well be my fault, I'm not sure.

The other thing, which I'm also not sure if it was our wedding coordinator's fault, or the band's, but they set up right where my bridesmaids were supposed to stand, so the girls had to scrunch together and it threw off the symmetry of the ceremony.

NOW THE GOOD - the musicians were exceptional We had SO many guests tell us that they were the best trio they'd ever heard.

Corey Averill is so nice, and very easy to speak with. I had dreamed of walking down the aisle to a Coldplay song, and I send him the version I liked and BAM he had the music for it and the trio learned the song!! They were even willing to allow a friend of mine to sing with the trio, which was amazing!

The only advice I have is make sure you have ALL the details worked out before the wedding. I thought that I had all of ours worked out, but I guess not! Either way, you will be glad that you hired them!

We booked inside 4 weeks of our wedding, and the experience was FANTASTIC!

It took only two phone calls to cement our music plans (just choices)
All I did was write them the check (no planning, rehearsal, pre-interview, in-person consult or reminders required). They showed up on time, looking sharp, seated themselves in the obvious place, started playing, and executed all the transitions FLAWLESSLY.

I remember thinking, as my bridesmaids walked down the aisle "I forgot to tell them how many bridesmaids, and to ask them not to cut the music short, but not play the whole piece before my procession, but still play both that song and Canon blah blah blah" ... and then just as I was grabbing dad's hand and wondering how they would pull it off, they wrapped up the processional like the piece was written to be 3 mins long (seamlessly), waited for one perfect moment, and then started the song I was walking down to. "GOSH", I thought, "these folks really know what they're doing". The best part was that they stayed to play some really lovely music through the receiving line and some of the photos. All of my very musically-inclined relatives commented on the quality of the performance. My only regret is that I didn't get to even say hello or thank you once because I was naturally very busy. I suppose that is the mark of a true professional - they required no management, placement, or recognition, and did an outstanding job. Thank you Hae-Jin and Hyng-Jin, you guys were GREAT!

We wanted something a little more live and classical than a DJ for our small private ceremony. We had read great reviews and listened to samples from Duo con Brio, and decided to go with them. We met with Corey to nail down which songs we wanted for both the ceremony, as well as during a champagne cocktail hour post-ceremony. He and his business partner did a wonderful job. The music was beautiful and added a nice touch to the ambiance of our ceremony.

I booked the musicians at the last minute. I was looking for something simple during the ceremony and during the cocktail hour. Music sounded good. They played our requests and then kept with the same style of music for the cocktail hour. They were fairly pricey, but when you take into account the time required for two musicians to practice, prep, drive and play, the price makes sense.

As a bride, I couldn't really tell you how my string duet did since I never really got to hear or see them.... I was so in the moment, I never even saw the string players! They kept me hidden in the bridal suite until the ceremony so the guests got to enjoy the strings, which is the way it should be. Then after the ceremony I was whisked away... It now makes complete and total sense to me why they want full payment before the wedding. From what all my guests said, they did a superb job and I know they created the mood of the wedding. Many guests ran late arriving to our off-the-map location, and duo con brio kept the wedding air through out the waiting time. Though I paid by the minute for overage, it was worth it. Corey was super awesome and was quick to reply on all of my emails. I found him at the Troutdale Bridal Show, where he offered a great discount for signing up that day. He was easy to work with and suggested great pieces when I was stuck. I recommend to create a document that specifies what songs you would like played when certain people walk down the aisle/ during cocktail hour/etc. I also recommend to have extra desired songs in your back pocket if you run into a position as mine where we had guests running late and we had the duet playing longer. The one hiccup I had was wanting two certain songs played at the wedding, Corey asked me to find the sheet music for the particular songs, but I could not find it, so it did not get played. :( Overall, from what my guests told me, duo con brio did a great job and I recommend them!

Duo con Brio played all the music for our ceremony as well as cocktail hour. Corey, the owner, was very approachable and easy to work with and he and Jim, the violinist, were both so talented. We loved the ceremony music. The only criticism I could give is that they had played at our venue before and said that it was small enough that we wouldn't need a mic for music, however at the cocktail hour, even though they moved closer to the party space, no one could really hear the music over the crowd (approx 60 people). They are both such talented musicians and I know they played some lovely pieces during the cocktail hour, just wish we could have heard them better.

They were very professional in dress & presence. Their performance was amazing & really tied everything together. It was great to have them outdoors & seem them in the corner of the garden.

Starting with my first contact with Corey Averill, he was casual but professional and very accommodating. Unfortunately, I never got to meet Corey in person, but we had a few 'phone concerts' to help select music for our ceremony, and on the big day, the music was flawless. A solo cello was perfect for the indoor venue, and Corey plays with incredible richness and quality. If you can book them, you'll be thrilled that Duo con Brio is playing at your wedding.
