My wife Sheila and I were married in New York City on November 7th 1987. About two months earlier a friend of mine announced that he was also getting married. Inspired by all of this I wrote a piece for Flute and Piano called “The Wedding Song”.
Sheila and I performed “The Wedding Song” at my parents home in Toms River, New Jersey during one of our wedding receptions …and people liked it. Then we performed again at another of our wedding receptions, this time in Addison, a suburb of Chicago where Sheila’s parents lived …and people liked it.
Getting married had had a profound effect on Sheila and I; it was the right thing to do. This was something we did that made us happy. Then it seemed to us that everyone we knew were also getting married. So, Sheila and I performed at several weddings of friends …and people liked it.
We had such a good time performing at our own wedding and for friends that in moving to Los Angeles in 1990 we decided to continue to perform professionally.
We were looking for a name and started out performing as “The Zimmermann Duo.” That name didn’t sound right, not even to me. Then I came up with the name “Elegant Music.” It is interesting that upon hearing us perform we consistently receive the compliment, “It is elegant music!”
Over the years we have grown to include many music services: Duos, Trios, Quartets, Jazz, Live Bands and DJ Dance Music and Professional Announcing.
