Atlas Brass for Your Wedding Day

Your wedding is the most important day of your life, and you want your guests to look back on every aspect of the day as being truly special – not as “yet another routine wedding.” The Atlas Brass can bring that distinction to your wedding with our majestic processionals, lyrical hymns and jubilant recessionals. Our music is emotionally powerful and guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye…and not because of the price!

The Atlas Brass can provide music from the guests arrival at the church until the end of the Cocktail Hour. The Atlas Brass sets the exact mood you desire from casual elegance to upbeat, drawing from the best of light classical, swing, Broadway and popular music.

When you work with the Atlas Brass, you are working with seasoned professionals that take pride in attending to every detail. We will arrive well in advance of the service and will be relaxed, warmed up and ready to go.

Music For The Wedding Ceremony

Whether you are planning a casual outdoor wedding or a formal wedding mass inside the largest cathedral, we have just the right musical selections, with an extensive repertoire spanning from the Baroque period to the best of today.

Atlas Brass gives you many options as you plan your perfect day, we can:

  • Play alone or in conjunction with your church organist and vocal soloists
  • Be attired in “black tie” tuxedos or dark suits
  • Work with you to select the perfect music for each part of your special day
  • Produce a custom arrangement of your favorite song, including keepsake transcription, for a nominal fee
