Weddings & Special Events

I'm an experienced performer available for wedding ceremonies and receptions and other special occasions! I have a wide repertoire, including the Bach suites, romantic classical pieces, folk melodies, jazz standards, and popular tunes, and will work with you to find the perfect pieces. I am also available to write a new piece or pieces just for the occasion in any style desired or arrange your favorite music for myself and/or for any instrument or ensemble you like. So if you'd like to hear your favorite ballad played as duet by your ten year old niece on violin and seventy year old grandpa on trumpet, I can help make it happen!

One of the most overlooked aspects of wedding ceremony music is the importance of tailoring the chosen songs to the right length, particularly if it is music that will be familiar to your guests. Whether your processional is 10 feet long or half a mile, as a composer and arranger, I have an intuitive understanding of the structure and pacing inherent in any piece of music. Not only will I have either trimmed or extended your selected pieces ahead of time to suit your estimated processional length, but I also have the improvisation skills to seamlessly handle, on the spot, any unanticipated change in duration. No need to worry if your flower girl takes the time to scatter every petal individually -- your chosen music will accompany her every step of the way.

Please let me know if you would like me to refer you to additional performers, wedding bands, DJs, sound and lighting engineers, or anyone else you are looking for to make the day perfect. I look forward to participating in your celebration!


Liz and Nils, I wanted to thank you both so so much for playing at our rehearsal and at 
our wedding. Jay and I were both amazed at how much time and thought you had 
obviously put into compiling a play list of our favorite artists and songs. The ceremony 
music was beautiful. The reception music was heartfelt. Like I said at the wedding, I wish 
I was a guest so I could have just sat and listened to you play. It was an honor to have 
you play for all of our family and friends. Jay and I truly couldn't have been happier.

I am not sure if I ever got a chance to thank you for playing the cello at our wedding! 
(October 16th at BR Cohn). It was such a wonderful day and everything went so well, I 
just wanted to thank you for providing such beautiful music.

We really appreciate how easy everything was with you, and thank you again.
