This was a beautiful morning for a wedding. As I was setting up for the wedding ceremony I saw a man practicing the ancient Chinese art of “Tai Chi” near by . It was beautiful to watch and actually foretold the magic that would happen later that afternoon.
The wedding ceremony was at Almansor Court’s Lakeside Gazebo. I performed Solo Piano for the wedding ceremony processionals and recessional. The bride chose music from a wide range of styles including: Motion Picture Themes, Traditional Chinese Music and The Beatles. Here is the wedding ceremony program:
Groom & Bestman
Music: Hymn Vangelis
Bride with Brother
Music: Canon In D, J. Pachelbel
Music: Guest Pianist
Sand Ceremony &
Flowers to Mothers
Music: Moon Represents My Heart
Music: All You Need Is Love, Beatles
Conducts the festivities of the wedding reception by making announcements. I shared the master of ceremonies responsibilities with wedding coordinator Carol Woo; after I did the grand entrance and first dance, Carol did the and family introductions and acknowledged out of town guests in Chinese.
During the lunch reception my Jazz Trio performed. I love playing with this group. We play Swing, Tangos, Contemporary Pop Music and Jazz Standards. See Elegant Music Jazz Trio Video
On a break there was an amazing performance of the traditional Chinese “Guzheng” (pronounced “goo–chung”) which is like a Zither and in many ways sounds like a Harp.
