Weddings

quotes.
Ceremony: The typical wedding ceremony may include
a 30 minute prelude (background music as guests
arrive), processionals (bridal marches), interludes,
recessional (exit march) and a short postlude
(background music as guests leave). Music is generally
styled towards classical or religious, depending on the
preferences of the client.

Reception: Background music can be provided for
dinner or cocktails on an hourly basis with a short break
at the top of the hour. Music style is typically more
contempoary/pop, or old standard, again, depending on
the requests of the client.

Audition: If you are unsure whether you want to have a
harp at your wedding, you are invited to call and
schedule a private audition with Carol. This is a meeting
in which she will discuss various options with you in
regards to using a harp in a wedding ceremony and
answer any questions you might have. And of course she
will play various music selections for you so you can get
an idea of what you would like. This meeting is free and
no obligation is necessary. If a physical meeting is not
possible, a demo CD is available to be sent to you.
