About Dracorvus Arts
We are based out of the downtown Grand Rapids, MI area.
Dracorvus Arts is a virtual cooperation of people interested in the arts.
Branches of DA include writing and music, and other arts as participants feel so inspired.
In addition, there are healing arts associated, in the form of Massage and related Therapies.
Further web presence is being developed.
MUSIC by Dracorvus Arts
Showing our musical side, here we focus on music:
live performances of all kinds, studio recordings done on a work-for-hire basis, and sound engineering for your events.
We are LGBTQ and ALL RELIGIONS / CULTURES friendly, and have professional experience with many kinds of events and live music. We can work with the family, or an event planner to ensure music and sound match desired ambiance. Large or small, simple or elaborate, conventional or unconventional, indoor or out, we've got you covered. We have worked with varied religious and secular ceremonies, and are willing to consider costuming for themed events.
Music by Dracorvus Arts is primarily Natalie Beversluis, playing solo violin or singing, and Clifford Thomas, sound technician.
Our network of musicians allow potential availability of duo or trio arrangements. Possible additional instruments include guitar, mandolin, whistles, cello, harp, voice, keyboard, and bass. If there is an instrument you would like added, please ask, we may know someone who could join us. Natalie can also collaborate with a musician of your choosing.
Genres available are likewise varied.
Classical and Celtic are the primary styles available, along with Italian, Middle Eastern, Old-Timey, and other World musics.
If you have a desired genre, ask. We may be able to meet your need, or know someone who can.
If you have a favorite tune, Natalie can create a solo violin part using either an audio file, or a video. She played Jurassic Park's theme music as a bridal march, and learned Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing", Elvis' Can't Help Falling In Love, and the Love Song from A Princess Bride, to name a few. Of course she also knows more traditional classical music and wedding tunes, including Pachelbel's Cannon in D, and the entire piece of Handel's Hornpipe from the Water music.
As we come up with more things, more will be added, so check back!
