Classical Music
Ceremonial Music
Individual Performers
Our goal at TorMusic Entertainment is to provide excellent musical ensembles and musicians, who will enhance the theme and atmosphere of your event. No idea is too wild, and often they are the most fun! Like providing a formal string quartet performing "The March of the Kitchen Utensils", with a Jazz fusion drummer in the background on pots and pans.

You will have the best knowledge of the theme and participants of your event. We will ask what your event is really about and what you want to accomplish.then we can assist you in selecting the best music and musicians. When considering the best kind of Live Entertainment it helps to answer certain basic questions:

Do we want Live Music as the main focus of a part of the event?
Ex. Kory Livingstone's program "A Tribute to Nat King Cole"

Do we want Live Music as the background for other activities?
Ex. The Dave Young Jazz Trio playing as elegant background for the TSE Annual Meeting.
Ex. The Nancy Walker Jazz Quartet doing a Jazz Medley of Beatles material for The ROMs
recent retrospective of the Beatles.
Ex. A string quartet as background music at a Corporate Reception

What style of music will best enhance the theme of your event?

Here are some Musical Styles and Ensembles - linked to the events for which
