Our repertoire

When planning your wedding music it is important to choose pieces that mean something to you both as a couple but will also provide lasting memories for your family and friends too. We have come to know what kind of music makes a significant event truly memorable and we can enhance the beauty and emotion of the day making it feel altogether a little more special. If you feel you need some gentle guidance with your song choices, the Minerva Ensemble string trio is here to advise you. Not only are we experts in understanding what fits a particular occasion, we also know how to arrange a piece to suit the mood of an event, so whatever your song choice we can discretely play whilst you enjoy your big day.

Please browse through our string trio repertoire and listen to our most popular wedding music songs for inspiration. If there is a particular piece of music that is special to you and isn’t on our list, we are more than happy to arrange it for you.

The Minerva Ensemble string trio are all graduates of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. We all regularly play with prestigious orchestras including the Halle Orchestra, Liverpool Philharmonic, Opera North, Manchester Camerata and the BBC Philharmonic. Whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music we formed a successful Wind Quintet. As our music progressed we developed as a trio of strings and oboe, allowing the elegance of the strings to be heard as you expect at a wedding, combined with that of the lyrical and warm sound of the oboe. As a trio we are also a more cost effective option than a string quartet, without compromising on quality.

Minerva Ensemble has been performing as a string trio at weddings, functions and public concerts since 1996. We have had the opportunity to play at recitals, festivals and competitions as well as tour across Europe and teach through the “Live Music Now” organisation.

We have also recorded a number of performances and performed concerts all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the world both as a group and with many other orchestras. With a wealth of experience playing both together and as individual musicians, we have developed a unique and beautiful sound.
