Café Vienna Ensemble

This unique group plays the romantic music you would hear in the famous Grinzing quarter of Vienna - the music capital of the world - with its many Gasthauses and Cafes adorned with the music of accordion and violin playing in an intimate setting the music of Vienna … the music of Johann Schrammel, the gypsy music of Hungary, as well as other European and world classics, while local patrons and tourists sample the latest harvest in this wine-making region of Vienna. With musicians dressed in formal attire and a repertoire including classical music from Europe, this chamber-like group is an excellent choice to provide the music for elegant public or private events, such as the cocktail hour preceding the dinner at your wedding or anniversary celebration, or a gala ballroom filled with dancers to a Strauss Waltz. This ensemble can be embellished with the superb vocals of Liana Braunova for a wider repertoire representative of all of Europe, or with percussion for venues where dancing is a part of the event.
