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.
