Songs for Kids at Memorial

POSTED BY NAE Staff :: December 16, 2008 4 COMMENTS

This evening I was honored to be a part of a really incredible program that is happening at every single children's hospital across the entire state of Georgia.  Songs for Kids invites local musicians to join them in their mission to enrich the lives of children in need through music.  I joined Josh, Arum, Tony, Joe and Igor to play for the Holiday Party, sponsored by J.T. Turner Construction.  Kids came up to sing with us (and man, they had some great voices!) and everyone truly enjoyed the evening.

POE event at The Landings

I had the honor of playing for a Philanthropic Educational Organization fundraiser this afternoon and it was such a great event!  High Tea was served at 4 PM while women circulated the room in clothing from Carol's of SavannahP.E.O. is a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans, and stewardship of Cottey College; and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.

It was truly wonderful to be a part of such a worthy event and everyone who attended had a incredible time.  The committee prepared and served all of the food themselves, and the "flights" of tea came from the oh so famous Savannah Tea Room.  The Empire's Bride is my personal favorite, as were the tea sandwiches with chicken, blue cheese, spinach and cranberry preserve.  Delicious!

Our harp, violin and cello trio played for Sarah and Matt's wedding this past weekend at Mickve Israel Synagogue and what an incredible wedding it was! The bride and groom had very specific ideas about their ceremony music, and we were able to customize the ceremony to fit their personalities and style.  Plus, the wedding planners with Events By Caroline did a spectacular job making sure the event was flawless.  The groom and is parents, along with the wedding party, entered to a contemporary arrangement of the traditional Jewish tune "Dodi Li" while the bride walked down the aisle to John Denver's "Annie's Song."  During the signing of the Ketubah the trio performed "The Prayer" and the recessional was a beautiful Coldplay song called "Till Kingdom Come."  Thank you Sarah and Matt for letting us be a part of your wonderful marriage ceremony...we wish you all the joy in your new lives together.

Lynne & James

Lynne was such a wonderful bride to work with and was so passionate about her music selections.  She met with me almost a year in advance and told me that she wanted to surprise her husband-to-be with a gospel choir at their wedding.  We made that dream happen for her and booked an incredible family of 5 singers and their very talented pianist who arranged Natalie Cole's "Inseparable" for Lynne to walk down the aisle after the harp and violin played an instrumental version of the same song.  The recessional was the traditional "Oh Happy Day" and everyone in the congregation joined in on the singing.  Donna Von Bruening did an incredible job capturing the true spirit of the wedding ceremony and the love between James and Lynne.  Everything was so beautiful!
