Parties & Receptions

Planning a corporate event, wedding, house party, or any other type of reception? Have a specific sound in mind? Halley will tailor a small jazz ensemble to create the sound and mood for your party.

Halley Shoenberg’s jazz ensembles perform a variety of music for listening, background, dining and dancing. She includes some or all of these styles at each event:

Please see our tune list. If there is a special song you would like to hear that is not on the list, we can accommodate.

Standard instrumentation for the Halley Shoenberg Jazz Quartet includes Halley Shoenberg (saxophone, clarinet, flute), guitar or piano, bass and drums. For larger ensembles, more horns and/or a vocalist can be added. For a lighter sound, choose a jazz trio without drums. A jazz duo or just solo saxophone are more options.

Halley Shoenberg's ensembles often perform for many different corporations, private homes, weddings, non-profit groups and other organizations in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia areas. Please see our client list.

Enjoy the versatility of Halley Shoenberg! She can provide classical music for a ceremony, then switch to jazz for the reception. For ceremonies she often plays classical flute and guitar music or a combination of classical, jazz ballads and quiet Latin tunes.

Pricing varies according to the size of the group and timing for your event. Please contact us for pricing information.
