PACKAGE DISCOUNT:  Arcobaleno Strings is partnered with Saci for a truly customized, musical experience.  Saci is a unique Bossa Nova ensemble.  As an example, with one contract, you can hire a classical string ensemble for your wedding ceremony and have bossa nova for your cocktail and dinner hours.  Nicole Williams is cellist and manager for both and can answer your questions and offer you special pricing when you hire both ensembles.  Most clients save $50-100.
 
VOCALIST: When available, we offer the option of including a talented, female vocalist for your ceremony with the instrumentation that you choose.  This is a nice option when you want to hear the meaningful words to a special song you want included.  The fee for this is $100 for up to three songs.
 
AMPLIFICATION:  We do not charge extra to amplify our group.  If you would like a lapel or handheld mic for your wedding officiant, we charge an additional $75.  It's a shame when your family and friends cannot hear your beautiful wedding ceremony!  Often a loud voice is not enough.
