August was a very busy month for the Intermezzo Chamber Players.
We played for weddings at the Wequassett Inn, Saint Christopher’s Church and Chatham Bars Inn in Chatham, a private Duxbury residence on the water, St. Mary’s Church and Barker Tavern in Scituate, Belle Mer in Newport, RI, Andover Country Club, Boston Public Library, Misselwood in Beverly and Willowdale Estate in Topsfield. Each wedding was unique because of the music selections. We played everything from Bach and Beethoven to Beatles and Coldplay. Tangos were very popular for cocktail hour as well as the old jazz standards.
September and October are going to be a little different musically. I’ve already had requests for “Can’t Help Falling In Love” (Elvis Presley), “Come Away With Me” (Norah Jones), “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” (Freddy Mercury), “Here Comes The Sun” & “All You Need Is Love” (The Beatles), “Over The Rainbow”, Coldplay’s “Fix You” & “Viva La Vida”, Mozart Romanza, Vivaldi Four Seasons – Autumn, Eit Dodim, and Bach Double Violin Concerto.
Whew! Writing out some of these arrangements will take a lot of time but I’m looking forward playing all of it!
