The Amante Duo are a warm and bubbly married couple with 3 kids based out of Calgary, AB, who combine their passion for guitar and flute with their love of singing for an exceptional blend of traditional and modern acoustic music (though they would never describe themselves as traditional). Hilary and Noel pair their unique sound and style to perform music in every genre from pop and jazz standards, to indie, R&B, folk, and even rock; they can take it all and turn it into exactly the acoustic dream that you're after.
Flutist Hilary Aubin Amante and guitarist Noel Amante are the classically trained husband-and-wife team that make up this duo, who first started performing together in their undergrad music degrees in 2004. They have been creating arrangements and performing for weddings, events and venues ever since with full seasons and full hearts.
Much of the duo's repertoire has been arranged by themselves to suit a particular style or event. That all-time favourite upbeat song of yours can be slowed down and smoothed over for an unforgettable walk down the aisle. Improvisation plays an important role in all of their performances to ensure seamless timing, entries, and exits. These are the musicians who will go above and beyond to create the ambience you've been dreaming of at your wedding.
The duo offers a number of packages depending on your wedding's musical needs, including by-the-hour bookings. Their wedding ceremony package offers the following services:

Love love love!
We can’t say enough great things about the Amante adios. We knew we wanted live music at the wedding, and they went absolutely above and beyond our expectations. Don’t even hesitate, you won’t regret it.Sent on 21/10/2019
Amante Duo's reply:I don't even know where to begin with you two!! We feel so very lucky to have been a part of your day, to witness all of the love being poured out on you both; Noel and I turned to look at each other with tears in our eyes, knowing just how special these precious few moments were. It was, hands down, the absolute best way to end our Fall wedding season!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for including us. Sending you all the love as you enter this next season together!! xoxo, Hilary

Amante duo was amazing to work with for our wedding day. From the start, they were professional, great communicators, and provided their expertise. Their music was so beautiful, and it created a peaceful and magical morning. They worked with us to help us choose music that fit us as a couple, and also worked with our wedding planner to ensure everything went smoothly. Thank you so much!!Sent on 24/08/2019

Best choice I made
Amante Duo preformed at my wedding ceremony in Canmore in October 2018. Right before the wedding, Canmore was hit with a huge snow storm and we didn't have a backup ceremony venue so it was going to be outdoors regardless of snow. I was completely aware of their weather policy, and was actually expecting them to have to cancel, but they did not! They showed up and played to the best of their abilities with the weather constraints and made the ceremony that much more beautiful. I was hesitant to hire them at first because I didn't know if it would be worth the money, but I am so happy that I did. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for live music, for any occasion.Sent on 25/10/2018
Amante Duo's reply:We are so grateful to have been a part of it, Brea!!
