Violinists, and sisters, Jenny Jones and Becky Thoms have joined with cellist, Jean Beaudoin, to form a fun loving professional string trio. The combined knowledge and expertise on their instruments have made these three musicians a much sought after trio. Playing for a wedding takes a special talent for the exact timing of starting and stopping pieces so that they fit the bridal party's processionals, recessionals and everything in between. With hundreds of weddings under their belt, these ladies possess such a talent. When you book Queen City Ensemble to be your wedding music team, you will be assigned to one of the trio members who will individually work with you to ensure that your wedding music will be everything that you have always imagined it to be. As you navigate the process of choosing your perfect wedding music, your team member will be happy to provide as much guidance as you need. Your team member will also work with your wedding coordinator and or minister/celebrant to ensure that everyone is on the same page concerning the timing of your music- working out cues etc. After your music is selected, you will only need to sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day.
We have been performing throughout the Charlotte area for over ten years. Additional instrumentation may be available upon request.
Each member of our trio has an average of 23 years of experience. We are actively performing professional musicians. Members of our trio have played in numerous orchestras including the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Ballantyne Chamber Orchestra, Charlotte Philharmonic Orchestra, Charlotte Civic Orchestra, Asheville Symphony Orchestra, Kingsport Symphony Orchestra and the Western Piedmont Symphony Orchestra.
As members of these and other ensembles, we have accompanied several world-class musicians including Ray Charles, John Tesh, Sandy Duncan, and cellist Lynn Harrell. Members of our trio have received classical training from Appalachian State University, North Carolina School of the Arts, Florida State University , Aspen Music Festival and University of South Florida. We have also received training from private instructors at Eastman School of Music, Indiana University, Rice University and the University of Cincinnati.
We look forward to being a part of your special day!
