When arranging a wedding, the big day’s soundtrack should hit all the right notes.
Thanks to its deep and varied crew of skilled musicians, Opus 216 resonates with any wedding’s tone, from the bride’s delivery to the reception’s last dance.
Founded by Ariel Clayton Karas in 2012, this ensemble meshes string, brass and woodwind to craft soundscapes for any occasion’s musical demands, be it French café jazz, Irish and American fiddle, Top-40 hits or a genre in between.
The group’s double-digit membership permits hustling to a variety of gigs daily; a normal Saturday may include five separate performances, ranging from string quartet, to solo fiddle — or something more unique.
“We had a really unusual wedding a couple of weeks ago,” says Clayton Karas. “We often do string trio, and maybe we add flute or something, but they wanted cello, guitar and trumpet. It worked really well, and they were super-duper happy.” opus216.com
