Bride and Mother of the Bride. Creative Music Choices!
Music was an important part of this wedding ceremony. I had a lot of fun working with the mother of the bride planning music. She and her daughter made very creative music choices allowing me the opportunity to write new arrangements for the Elegant Music Quintet.
The Elegant Music Quintet organically evolved from Flute and Piano (Duo) to include Violin and Cello which created the Elegant Music Quartet.
Then, Harp was added to the ensemble which created a quintet (a five instrument ensemble). The combinations of these instruments produce an expansive variety of music textures and sound.
From receiving requests the Elegant Music Quintet performs an ever growing repertoire of popular and contemporary music covers, motion picture themes and traditional classical music.
