"..... let it thunder to the tune of Green Sleeves"
--- W. Shakespeare
Our Arrangements are original, and inspiring. Improvisation and liberal use of various woodwind instruments combined with unique harp accompaniment give a fresh approach to familiar material.
Gentle Rain Trio
We add percussion with windchimes and bells to the harp and woodwind duo.
Rich Jones Jazz Project
Led by woodwind specialist Rich Jones the Jazz Project energizes a room with the sophisticated sound of contemporary & classic jazz: swing, standards, bossas and blues.
The music of Nat King Cole, Chick Corea, Gershwin, Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra and others infuses an event with listening and dancing pleasure.
The Project can vary in size from the core duo of woodwinds & keyboard to a five piece combo, depending on clients needs.
The Classic Consort
Bach, Haydn, Pachelbel, Mozart: the Music of the Masters enhances a special event with timeless elegance. Our Classic Consort of woodwinds and strings brings color, clarity and love of the classics to each performance.
When less is more for your event, our instrumentalists are happy to perform solo.
