Wedding Ceremonies




We have extensive experience with music from many religious traditions. We also provide inspiring and uplifting music for non-religious ceremonies. The addition of Lyrica’s solo musicians, vocalist or small ensemble will help create the right mood in any setting to make your day unforgettable.

We will help you choose the right sounds to create all the moods appropriate to your day; some moments are quiet and meditative, some moments are upbeat and joyful, some are grand and elegant.

We will also integrate Lyrica’s music with services provided by musicians from your church or synagogue, or with songs performed by your family and friends. If musicians from your church or synagogue are part of the wedding, Lyrica musicians will coordinate closely with them. If a friend or relative wishes to sing a solo at your wedding, Lyrica can accompany him or her.

For a Jewish wedding, we have created special musical arrangements — unique to Lyrica — of songs from the Jewish tradition. It is also appropriate to play elegant classical music and other songs of your choice at a Jewish wedding. We are a preferred ensemble for several rabbis in Greater Cincinnati.

For a wedding Mass in a Roman Catholic church, we will work in cooperation with the priest or the parish music director. We are experienced church musicians, and we play Mass music throughout the week. We can provide the perfect music for the entire wedding Mass, including the vocal leadership and all the instrumental music. Or we can coordinate with other musicians from your church. If the liturgy will be lead by a musician on staff at the church, we will work closely with that professional to add special touches your wedding music.

When you are choosing the musicians for your ceremony, Lyrica can offer expert guidance. We will take into account the type of ceremony you're dreaming of, the musical sounds that appeal to you most, your wedding site and your budget.



Wedding Receptions





Perhaps your reception calls for cool jazz, soothing and joyful classical music, or a dance band. Talk with us about the type of reception you are planning, and we will help you create the right musical mood.

You might consider one type of music for cocktails, and another for dinner. Or you might choose one ensemble that plays a variety of music and works perfectly for the entire reception.

Economical package pricing is available when you request Lyrica musicians for both the wedding ceremony and reception.

To learn about our solo instruments, vocalists, bands and small ensembles, visit www.lyrica.org. Read less
Ceremony Music , Band

INFO FOR BAND

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
The musical ensemble dresses appropriately for the event. If it is formal, they are in sophisticated formal wear. Other options are suits, All Black, or Black and White.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Visit our website, www.lyrica.org to hear some samples. Also, talk with us about some exciting musical options that are not currently represented on the site.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
We are always adding songs. Talk with us about that special song you want to hear!
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Depending on the number of musicians in the group you choose, a typical setup time will be 20-60 minutes. However Lyrica musicians arrive early, always in plenty of time to be playing the first song when your first guest arrives.
How much space do you usually require?
Our smallest musical ensemble needs nor more than a few square feet, and our largest will require considerably more. We will consider the space you have chosen when making recommendations for music to serve your needs.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
This is *your* event, so we will not post promotional material. Our "advertisement" is the beauty and excitement of our musical sound.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Some of our larger ensembles offer special lighting to add to the mood of the reception. Our smaller ensembles do not offer special lighting, but we can recommend excellent companies to take care of every lighting or special audio need.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Lyrica can provide a top-notch Master or Mistress of Ceremonies if you would like this service. The MC can make all the announcements for the reception, helping to keep your reception on schedule. This can take the burden off of your family and friends.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We find that wedding guests like to alternate between talking and dancing. Your guests will never be "bored with the music" when we are playing! Well-played music creates the right environment for a memorable event that leaves everyone feeling good.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
There are several ways breaks can be worked out for a reception. We will talk with you to be sure nothing interrupts the flow of your reception.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
For a reception, recorded music can be provided, but many of our musical ensembles stagger musicians' breaks so that there is continuous music with no unexpected silences.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
Lyrica's musicians have earned the highest reputation for reliability. It is extremely rare that a musician is unable to perform. However if the worst did happen, we would call on the best available musicians so that your music would continue as planned. Our reservoir of professional, experienced musicians is deep.
What is your overtime rate?
For some events, the fee is all-inclusive and you will not be charged anything additional within a broad time frame. For other events, the overtime rate depends on the number of musicians in the ensemble you have chosen. You will know the exact rate before we write the contract.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
There are no travel fees for the vast majority of the engagements we play. For some venues quite far beyond Cincinnati, there may be a mileage charge. However there are never any surprises. You will know the exact fees before the contract is written.

For most events, the deposit is a simple $100.

How much time do you usually need for setup?
We are familiar with many, many venues in the region, and we are careful to allow more time where more is required. For most venues, Lyrica musicians will arrive at least 30 minutes before the time we are scheduled to play. Actual setup requires less time, so there is always a comfortable margin. Certain venues require more time, and we are careful to schedule plenty of time to serve your unique situation.
How much space do you usually require?
A solo musician can perform in as little as 6x6 feet of space. Larger ensembles require more space. We are familiar with many, many venues in the region, and if you wish, we can help you decide the best placement for the music.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?

This was my first time planning a wedding. I inquired about Lyrica on the site and immediately received a response from Holly. From that point forward, she was incredible! She made the decision making for music, etc. so easy for us.
Since it was a Catholic Mass, writing up the program took some time and effort. I had many questions for the Church and for Holly. She was so knowledgeable about the format, requirements and what would and would not be acceptable. She made it so much easier to put it all together.
I knew from day one that the music would not disappoint and I was exactly right! It went even beyond our expectations. The vocalist did not miss a note and the trumpet, organ and piano talent was top notch! (Even though there was a problem with the pedals on the organ that we were unaware of until the day of the wedding.) Her team worked around it and there was not even a notice of anything.
We had so many wedding attendees come up and make a point to tell us how beautiful the music was.
Being the parents of the bride, we missed out on all the prelude music so we are very anxious to see and hear the video of that portion.
Look no further than Lyrica for your special event!

When our organist (a family friend) backed out a month before the wedding, I had no idea where to look for a replacement. I contacted several vendors, but Holly at Lyrica was an absolute pleasure to work with! She gave us options that we didn't even know were available in our budget...harp, violin, organist, cello, guitarist, etc! Lyrica has any musician you are looking for. She also knew our venue and was able to suggest songs that would work well there. Our whole experience working with her was wonderful. When our duo (violin and organ) started playing, we were all blown away! It was absolutely beautiful! They arrived early, were professional, smiled, and played until everyone left the chapel. Several guests commented on the music, and it's the only thing I can remember from the day. We are so thankful our original musician backed out, because the musicians at Lyrica are that good! We HIGHLY recommend working with them!

What a wonderful experience it was to work with Holly Pratt in arranging our daughter's wedding music. Holly was very informative and helped the bride and groom pick out music and answered questions about order of service. She located a cantor for the catholic service that was outstanding as well as a wonderful pianist and trumpet player that were wonderful and so professional. The day was made extra special by this music. We are so fortunate to have an organization such as Lyrica in Cincinnati. No matter what type of music you might need for your event you should check with Lyrica. You will be glad you did. One stop shopping for all your music needs for the church service.

As a professional musician myself, I was looking for musicians that could meet every specific need I threw their way. Through Lyrica we used a classical guitar and cello duo. Holly, the manager of Lyrica, worked with me several times throughout the year helping me and was very responsive to my needs. The music was by far the best aspect of the entire wedding day and Lyrica deserves an award for that! They rock. I highly recommend them to anyone who cares a lick about music on their wedding day.

A string trio from Lyrica provided exquisite music for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding ceremony at Ault Park Pavilion in Cincinnati on April 13th. Using a combination of classical and contemporary music for the prelude, processional, tree planting ceremony, recessional, and postlude, they created just the right atmosphere to enhance the occasion.

Holly, who is in charge of scheduling and planning for Lyrica, was enormously helpful and accessible as together we discussed and selected the appropriate music to set the mood for the wedding service. She was extremely patient and supportive as we attempted to blend together classical pieces, that I wanted included, with more contemporary songs that my daughter had chosen. Lyrica wove these together seamlessly, providing an elegant tone for the entire wedding ceremony.
