La Folia Chamber Ensemble has performed for thousands of weddings in nearly every popular venue in the Los Angeles area. Providing ceremony and cocktail hour music is our specialty.

Jerry and Gail Acosta created La Folia Chamber Ensemble to play music for weddings. The joy we experience playing together has shaped the sound and feel of our music and we bring that joy to every performance.

La Folia is a classical music group made up of flute, violin, cello, and guitar. Our music includes what you'd normally expect from a classical group; but while we're quite comfortable playing Classical and Baroque masters, we reach out to the larger audience of listeners with contemporary music in the "unplugged classic style".


For more than twenty years we have been committed to artistry and to making our performance a memory you will cherish.

I have employed the services of La Folia Chamber Ensemble before and every time they have met and exceeded my expectations. I too am a musician and so much appreciate the professionalism of these great musicians. They are prompt, always easy to work with and come to the event totally prepared for the task before them. The events we do are high end and require an ensemble of this caliber. I would not hesitate to have them time and time again. They have delighted my guests and clients both. True excellence.

These guys just took our wedding to the next level!

We hired them to play the guitar and violin while guests arrive and for my walk down the aisle. They made it SO magical! I originally thought I would just have the DJ play some music for my walk down the aisle but it's just not the same. These guys are so affordable and just made it so beautiful for us!!

I would HIGHLY recommend them!!

La Folia Chamber Ensemble, truly a class act. They looked and sounded great. They added so much grace and beauty to our ceremony. I am so happy that my husband found them. Every time emailed Jerry, he was very quick to respond and very attentive to changes and questions that I had. If your ceremony goes over time, you will be charged for anytime that is outside of the contact, so be prepared to set aside some money in case that happens. They were a fantastic choice and great value.

We had the guitar and violin duo from La Folia Ensemble for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and they really added a classic and elegant touch to our big day. Jerry was always very responsive to phone calls and e-mails, and was a pleasure to work with. We had a couple specific requests which they played beautifully, and their rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World by IZ sounded fantastic!! The rest of the time they chose what music to play, and their selections were right on and were just beautiful. I still can't believe how affordable they were given the quality of their performance. Highly recommended!!

Jerry and La Folia did our ceremony and cocktail hour music. We chose the duet-classical guitar and violin. The sound was gorgeous and was very affordable. He was wonderful to work with and very easy to get in touch with. There was a piece of music I was really set on walking to and after we went back and forth and I sent him the snippet I had-he managed to find the whole piece and was able to play it for me. I found him to be great vendor and very accomodating. I totally recommend him for any function!

My husband and I were very pleased with the music provided by La Folia. We had the string trio (guitar, violin, flute) play at our ceremony and cocktail hour. We really liked the live music to walk down the aisle to. They played the songs that I wanted beautifully. Also, our guests enjoyed the music at cocktail hour.
