What Makes Ovation Unique

Superior Service.  Our clients are important to us, and we provide personalized service at every step along the way. 

Our repertoire list.  We are a versatile group. Not only do we  include many styles in our repertoire, but we love to play  each and every variety. Our arrangements of popular music are created with great attention to detail  so that they are engaging, beautiful, and a joy to play. (For more specific selections, see our popular repertoire list on the “Music” page.) 

***Special Requests.  If you have a song in mind and it’s not already on our list, we will create a special arrangement at no extra cost (up to 2 per event).  Other area ensembles charge for this service; not Ovation. Consider it a gift to you! 

Flexibility.  For smaller events, we also break down to a trio or duo.  Additionally, we offer violin/piano or cello/piano combinations. This allows clients the ability to easily integrate Ovation into a particular venue size, or budget. 

Sincerity. We maintain authentic friendships outside of our business, which we feel gives us exceptional energy, unity and passion when we play together.   

Generosity. Believing in music’s ability to cheer and move people, we bring music out into the community, not just to paying clients. We regularly share our music  at Dunn Brothers, Butter Bakery & Underground Music Cafe, among other informal venues.
