Vivien Li of Music For Every Occasion provided the music at our wedding on March 18, 2016. It took place at the lovely and historic Stranahan House. Vivien worked with us to select exactly what we wanted, which was classical. She and three other musician ( to include clarinet, oboe and bassoon along with Vivien's flute ) comprised a wind quartet that was wonderful. She played Bach, Mouret and Handel, just as we wished. The skill of these musicians is terrific. Her playing created an elegant atmosphere in an already fabulous setting. We recommend Music For Every Occasion without hesitation. It is delightful.Mar 31, 2016VerifiedVivien L.'s reply

- How did you get started doing this type of work?It all began in 2011 when I (Vivien) moved back home to Margate. After teaching English in China for two years, I wanted to pursue my master of music degree in the United States. While applying for schools, I worked as a freelance flutist and teacher. I connected with old friends, made new ones, and began brainstorming how we could combine our passion for music with helping people create unforgettable memories. Then, after performing together for Beauty and the Beast at Calvary Christian Academy, I shared my idea with violinist Rose Renee, violist Kailii, and cellist Sam - create a team of musicians offering highly-personalized service for weddings and special events. We created our first YouTube video in January 2013, met with our first clients in February, and played for our first wedding on May 3. Since then, our team has grown and our goal remains the same deliver incomparable service to provide the soundtrack for your most cherished moments.
