Picture the view of Boston from the 33rd floor of the Harvard Club on Federal Street.
It’s pretty amazing and makes it hard to concentrate on playing the notes! We always enjoy the view when we play there and this time we got to play with a harpist. What a great sound and fun for the musicians too.
A nice way to incorporate the harp with trio is to have some solo pieces interspersed with the trio. A good harpist can play anything a string trio plays by using a piano score. That includes most of our wedding music. You can also have the trio play alone on some harp pieces. Harpists bring their own amplifiers so they can be better heard by your guests.
Thy and Alvin chose “Canon in D” for the bridal party, “The Gift of Love” for the Thy’s entrance, and “Allegro” from Spring, The Four Seasons as the recessional. They wanted all classical music for the prelude and cocktail hour.
Dawn Moodie (firstname.lastname@example.org) did a wonderful job coordinating the entire event even though Alvin was suffering from the flu and barely made it through the ceremony! I hope the pictures made him look better than he did when he walked down the aisle.
