MUSIC SELECTIONS

This is not our complete list. If there is a particular song that you like but don’t see on the list, please ask.

Arco Music owns an extensive collection of classical, popular, contemporary, movie, rock, jazz, sacred, traditional and seasonal music. We strive to provide the best musical entertainment and will do our best to honor any musical request.

WEDDINGS (sacred and secular)

Wedding ceremony music is traditionally divided into four parts: prelude, processional, mid-ceremony and recessional. Prelude is pre-ceremony music that lasts about 20 minutes (5-7 songs) and meant to set the joyful mood and entertain your guests as they gather for the ceremony. Following immediately after the prelude is processional music that accompanies you and your wedding party while walking down the aisle. It usually includes three songs: grandmothers and mothers, bridesmaids and children (flower girls, ring bearer), and the bridal entrance. For processionals with fewer attendants only two songs are recommended to preserve the flow of the ceremony. 

Interlude (mid-ceremony) rituals such as the lighting of the unity candle, presenting flowers to Mary and mothers, and signing of the marriage license are beautiful additions to any wedding. If you don’t have a song preference for this part of the ceremony, we can advise you on music selections that are appropriate. If you are choosing music for a wedding in a church, it is always a good idea to ask the liturgical staff about any specific rules or guidelines the church might have regarding music selections.

* For catholic weddings, all the music selections can be instrumental except responsorial, Gospel acclamation and the Mass parts. A professional vocalist can be added to the music ensemble if the priest in charge of the ceremony prefers a vocal congregation leader.

Recessional music is played at the end of the ceremony when you are walking away from the altar. Depending on the number of attendants and venue size, usually it is one or two upbeat songs that set joyful mood for you and your guests.

If you are interested in hiring us for cocktail hour and/or wedding reception, please see ‘Special Occasions’ section. 

SPECIAL  OCCASIONS

If you are planning a special event such as a fundraiser, gala, cocktail hour, reception, party, anniversary, dinner, business opening, corporate celebration, etc., having live instrumental music can be a great addition in creating an amazing atmosphere. We offer easy listening music selections that flow smoothly allowing your guests to have a great time. No need to worry about choosing all the songs – just tell us the type of music you would prefer, and we will build a custom playlist appropriate for your event. 

MEMORIAL AND RELIGIOUS SERVICES

It is always a good idea to consult with liturgical staff about any specific rules or guidelines the church might have regarding music selections. We own an extensive collection of sacred music such as hymns and songs suitable for any religious occasion. We strive to provide the best musical experience and will do our best to honor any requests.
