Looking for great ceremony musicians? Then look no further... Magic Flute Weddings, since 2003, is a network of fine professional musicians located in the South Jersey and the Philadelphia areas are at your disposal! Our musicians are not only experienced in playing wedding music for up to twenty years, but also have music degrees from fine music schools and are orchestral players, private teachers and fine soloists. However, the most important thing is this: We SOUND beautiful, and having performed for so many weddings, we have a wide repertoire of music and knowledge of various wedding ceremonies.

I am founder and professional free lance flutist Geri Rizzo, and I team up with a harpist, classical guitarist, pianist, violinist and/or cellist to make the musical combination of your dreams for your dream wedding or event: solo, duo, trio or quartet. We also have great jazz musicians, beautiful trained classical singers and even trumpet players for your fanfare available. For more about me, see my personal website, www.GeriRizzo.com. And if I am already booked on your date, I have several wonderful "Magic Fluters" for you in my stead!

You can be sure the musician(s) you get will be personable as well as professional and very talented. As a flutist I have been complimented many times for my beautiful tone and it makes me happy to play for your most special occasion! But I'm not only a flutist; I put the Magic Flute Weddings website on the web long before most ceremony musicians even thought about it. I also talk to the brides myself, believing communication is key, make recommendations and send out your contracts. It is a job I truly love.

Our musicians cover all Central and Southern Jersey to Cape May to Philadelphia. If you are in Northern Jersey or out of our scope of travel, I can recommend fine musicians for wherever you need.

Please visit our website, www.magicfluteweddings.com for more bios, audio and video, and read our frequently asked questions. We also provide a wedding song sampler on the site and recommend other venues and wedding services you may be looking for with whom we have worked and found to be excellent.

We consider your wedding a sacred event, and treat your wedding like it is the first we've every played. We work closely with you to create your vision of your dream wedding, playing traditional classical music to love songs or your favorite tunes which we can arrange for you. Our fees are competitive with other fine professional wedding musicians of our caliber. Don't hire McDonald's to play for your wedding ceremony... don't you deserve caviar?

Looking forward to working with you!

Magic Flute (Geri Rizzo) was excellent, . professional and flexible.. Our wedding was on the beach and we chose the violin and flute. Not only was Geri flexible with our date and time, but also our choice in music.
My husband and I chose a contemporary song for our procession and a classical one after our ceremony. Not only did they play these two songs but continued to perform another one for us. The music made our wedding a very memorable and happy day!!! Thank you Geri and Susan!!! I highly recommend Magic Flute at any of your ceremonies or parties!!

Dear Roseann, Thank you for your kind words. As musicians, we find it paramount that our performance meets your standards and does add that touch of "magic" for your day. So it's nice to know that it was "mission accomplished!". It also helped that you were so kind and supportive from the start. Many people don't get that we are musicians first - and business people because we have to be.

Wishing you and your family all the best. Sincerely, Geri

I hired Geri Rizzo (flutist), Susan (violinist), & Toni (pianist) for my wedding mass. They were fantastic! Geri was the main contact person, and she was so helpful with getting everything ready. I wanted very different music selections for the bridal entrance and recessional, and Geri went out of her way to find the sheet music, and arrange for the musicians to practice together beforehand. Moreover, she went above and beyond by noticing that we also needed an additional instrument, and made the necessary arrangements for Toni to also play the piano for the mass. She knew I didn't want the organ, so she took care of the details, and had the piano transported to the church for mass!

I was so thrilled with Geri, Susan, & Toni's performance! My wedding mass music was beautiful, and I am so thankful to Geri for arranging everything, and all three musicians for their talent & professionalism! My wedding music stood out, and I will never forget it!

In love & gratitude,

I used the Magic Flute for my daughter's wedding ceremony on April 27, 2013. It was obvious that the musicians had never practiced together. They were out of tune and their timing as two artists working together were totally out of sync. Perhaps alone they might have sounded alright, but together they sounded terrible. When I brought this to the owner Geri's attention, she was extremely rude and defensive to me. Even though this communication was between Geri and me, no cc to my daughter, I found out that while on their honeymoon, my daughter and son-in-law were contacted by her, informing them that I was unhappy with their musicians. This communication was between me and the Magic Flute. If I wanted my daughter to know, I would have told her when she came back from her honeymoon, certainly not while she was away. These artists together were so out of harmony and the owner was so unprofessional, I felt it was necessary to write this review.

I regret that my musicians' performance did not meet your standards. I reviewed this matter and watched the videotape and the performance of my musicians was completely professional. We diligently provided the service according to the contract and I thank you for your input. Yes, I did contact your daughter, the bride, because I was told she complimented the musicians. I just don't understand. Geri

Lois was a wonderful fill-in for Geri--the ceremony music was absolutely beautiful. The only negatives I have to report are with corresponding with Geri--I asked for a phone call from her several times before I had to actually call her myself (she was responsive via email) and she emailed me a day AFTER the wedding to tell me about Lois (she knew about a conflict with her schedule beforehand). However, it all worked out in the end and it was a beautiful ceremony.

Dear Lynne, Thank you for your candid feedback. The contract clearly states that should the contracted performer be unable to perform for the contracted event that another musician of the same caliber would be provided, which is what I did. I know that Lois Herbine is a wonderful flutist and I'm glad that we agree on that.

Thanks again for your input and your understanding. Kind regards, Geri Rizzo

Geri and John were such a wonderful addition to our wedding ceremony! I didn't really know what I wanted for ceremony music and Geri suggested the flute and guitar duo, and so I went with it. I could not have been more happy with the way the music sounded on our wedding day!! We are big Beatles fans and we picked a few of their songs and they sounded great. If I were to do it all over again, I would choose them again. Geri was great to work with, booking was easy, and she always quickly answered my questions. I would recommend these musicians without any hesitation!!

I cannot say enough about how much we loved our flutist, Steve Tanzer for our wedding this past weekend. He was fantastic in every aspect. He went out of his way to make our ceremony special. We got so many compliments, not only for his music, but for him as a person. He played Irish music for when everyone was being seated, traditional music for walking down the aisle, and then ended with Marry You by Bruno Mars and Kiss the Girl from the Little Mermaid. That is a task that does not go unnoticed.

Geri Rizzo was a delight to work with leading up to the ceremony. She had fantastic communication with us and made sure that she knew exactly what we wanted. I would recommend them if you want special, individualized music for your special day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Our church played them through speakers and when I first arrived, I didn't even realize it was them playing because it sounded like a recording. Very friendly, bubbly people who are a pleasure to work with! Will be referring them to friends and family!!

Dear Adriane, We packed up all of our equipment which consisted of a Bose Speaker system, two mics, two stands, our instruments and cords not once, but twice, because someone thought the rain would let up and didn't, then trekked with them up through a service elevator and were pressured to quickly get set up and begin playing immediately without proper time for tune up as we were told your guests were waiting to come in. Certainly we deserve a better review than this.

While I'm sorry you didn't get your beautiful outdoor wedding, a little bit of kindness and consideration goes a long way. Also, your dealings were with my guitarist, a friend of your family, not me.

I simply can't fathom your inexcusable lack of concern for others.

Sincerely, Geri Rizzo, Flutist

Prior to my wedding Magic Flute was one of the most responsive companies that we worked with. They made this part of my planning very easy with no stress. My wedding was the day of a terrible storm which left South Jersey in a state of disaster so I was unsure if any of the companies would even show up to my event. The girls were there early, prepared, incredibly professional, and did an amazing job!!! They are unbelievably talented musicians and I could not be happier with their service!!! Thank you girls so much!! You were a huge part in creating a beautiful ceremony for one of the most special days for us!

Dear Sherri and Josh, Thank you for the glowing review! Yes, it was sad that your wedding day was the day after the storm, but the key word is "after" the storm... and the Linwood Country Club and you two made it work and we did our best to help!

Here's hoping your marriage together has few storms if any, and if so, you both weather them as well as you did this one! We wish you a wonderful life together... Geri and Barbara, The Celestial Flute and Harp Duo

Geri was "ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL" in "ALL" areas. She is a "Gifted musician and also has a "Beautiful Voice". We couldn"t have done any better. Do yourself a favor and don't look anywhere else, you don't need to. Geri is "AWESOME".

Thank You Geri,

Geri and Susan were a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. Geri was helpful in suggesting several songs for our ceremony as well as willing to proof read our program beforehand. Communication was always open and we always felt attended to. The flute/violin duo was beautiful at our beach ceremony. They were even able to accommodate our officiant and provide a microphone. We could not have been happier that things ran smoothly. Between their friendliness and professionalism, we would definitely recommend their services!

My husband and I got married on the beach and up until a month or so before the wedding - we hadn't finalized how we were going to have music for our ceremony. I ran across Magic Flute Weddings, and couldn't have been happier.
I reached out to Geri Rizzo (the owner) and she replied back to me immediately. I was very concerned we weren't going to be able to book, being this was so close to our wedding date. Unfortunately she was booked - however she was able to offer us other musicians that were. We chose a flutist (Pamela Whitman) and her accompanying violinist.
The whole process of choosing music, Geri couldn't have made it easier. She provided suggestions. The website has a song list, as well as the media files to listen as well. It made the process entirely too easy!

The day of the ceremony, the musicians were set up on the beach, looking VERY professional. ANd the entire event went smoothly. THey knew their songs, the moments to begin music, etc. It was perfect. And because we paid up front, we didn't have the added hassel of making sure we took care of them etc.

I'd definitely recommend Magic Flutes for an upcoming wedding ceremony. They were amazing for ours. Thank you so much!

Hi Jaclyn, Thank you for your kind review. Yes, sometimes I personally as the flutist am booked, but I do know how to pick other fine musicians who are beautiful sounding, professional and reliable, and Pamela is a perfect example of that.

I'm so glad you were happy with the music, and I wish you and your new hubby the very best in your journey together! Sincerely, Geri Rizzo, flutist and founder, MagicFluteWeddings.com

One of the best decisions I made to make our wedding day super special was reaching out to Geri at Magic Flute. I booked the Flute and Harp duo to play the ceremony as well as the cocktail hour. We were married on a beautiful October day on the outside gardens of the Southern Mansion in Cape May, NJ. Their music was perfect, and the ambiance they created is still being talked about by my guests.

The support, communication and ease at picking what music was the best fit for our day was amazing. I would recommend Geri and Barbara (flute and harp) again and again. Thanks to them for making a perfect day even better and more memorable.

Magic Flute Weddings provided the ceremony music for our wedding at Cairnwood Estates on Aug. 20, 2011. It could not have been more beautiful. We chose the flute and harp combination which so perfectly matched the atmosphere and ambiance of the venue. Working with Geri Rizzo, the flutist, was so easy. She was extremely helpful and informative. The musicians were extremely professional and talented. I would recommend them to everyone.

Hello Brides, My name is Deirdre Holke and I was searching for someone fabulous with the right price who was great to play for my big day. Well I stubbled across Gerri Rizzo and her team AKA MAGIC FLUTE WEDDINGS.
I was invited to Gerri's home to hear her play a few songs for us, we immediatley got the chills and new we were going to go with Magic Flute Weddings. Not only was Gerri professional and confident in the service she was providing but she had a great sense of humor and great personality now that's hard to come by. It's also important that you feel comfortable with the person/people you are dealing with for your big day. If you came across Magic Flute Weddings my suggestion would be to book them right away because you won't find anyone better for the service and the price and the comfort of knowing you are going to get exactly what you asked for.

Happy Booking Ladies and Congratulations
