Vivace Live is more than a group of musicians. We are a community who thrives on connecting with others while making beautiful music. 

  We seek out excellent musicians who value connection. We also look for musicians who are flexible, adventurous, responsible, and a tiny bit quirky.  We love performing together and If we aren't playing for YOUR party, you MIGHT find us throwing one of our own!

Her three passions are helping others, creating, and giving her musical team opportunities to use their gifts.  She enjoys every single event that she manages and performs, because she is able to help others appreciate singular moments, through stylish and excellent music.

We travel for

Destination Weddings and events

 Most destination events focus on visual beauty and neglect the more powerful soundscape.  Without live music, guests will miss the magic of your most special moments.  An exceptional, immersive event must engage all the senses.  Our musicians recognize the importance of music, even when your dreams take you to far-away places.  Whether visiting Boston, LA, Big Sky Montana, or Lake Como, Vivace can create the timeless and modern atmosphere you need.  Pricing varies according to location.
