First of all, meet with me. I adore classical music, and I will show you why. You’ll learn a lot of interesting things that you may not have known before, and at the very least, you’ll enjoy listening. I am passionate about sharing my love of the violin in particular and music in general. This knowledge is something that could enrich your life for many years; it’s not a mystery, it’s magical.
Second of all, go with your instincts! Don’t do Pachelbel’s Canon for your Processional (that’s wedding lingo for your big entrance) just because you heard it at a friend’s wedding. Do it because you love it. Or, have it on your list, but know you’ll be open to other suggestions. (Hint: you can always put it in the Prelude music while guests are being seated.) Believe me, there are many, many pieces that work well for your grand entrance, and certainly, the Canon is one of them. Others could include J. S. Bach’s “Air in D” (subtitled “Air on the G String”) or George Handel’s “Air in F” from his wonderful “Water Music”. Or, hire a trumpet player with your string quartet and do Clarke’s “Trumpet Voluntary in D”.
The pieces above are some of our wedding hits, but there are others that, I guarantee, NO ONE in your circle of invitees has heard that are just as amazing. Or, you may choose to go with a great pop tune to walk down the aisle; if it’s not arranged for the group you hired, I can arrange it for you for an extra fee.
So have fun with your choices; it’s your big day, let it reflect your love for each other and your special tastes! See you at your (free) consultation.
