The Arcantora Duo's repertoire includes Scottish folk music, songs from musicals and popular music arrangements for the reception and wedding breakfast, as well as classical repertoire like Ave Maria, Wedding Marches etc for the ceremony. Please contact the Arcantora Duo if there is a specific piece you have in mind: Mark and Nina are happy to arrange your favourite tune (if it's not already in their repertoire) especially for you for no additional cost.

You can choose what you would like the duo to wear, selecting from either:

all black, coloured dress/suit; evening dress/dinner jacket; ball gown/white tie (or if you have any other preferences, please let us know!)

The Arcantora Duo can bring a digital piano as well as amplification if required. Amplification for the string instruments and voice is also available if the duo is required to play outdoors.

If you would like Arcantora to play outside, the duo provides a portable, white, weatherproof gazebo. Scottish weather is no problem! Other outdoor equipment include a 20 metre extension reel (waterproof of course!) in order to be able to set up that bit further away from the main building if required. (click the pictture to see it in full size)
