On a day in early Fall, in Chicago’s near west suburbs, our quartet played at Rachael and Brian’s wedding.
The church’s music director played piano and sang during the service for a musical interlude and unity candle. We played the rest of the music for Rachael’s wedding:
Prelude requests: Somewhere Over the Rainbow (from the “Wizard of Oz”), Someone to Watch Over Me (from “Oh, Kay!”), and O Mio Babbino Caro (from “Gianni Schicchi”)
Parents/Grandparents: Ave Maria (Bach/Gounod)
Bridal Party: Main Theme (from “Forrest Gump”)
Bride’s Entrance: Falling Slowly (from “Once”)
Recessional: All You Need is Love (Beatles)
Postlude requests: Viva la Vida (Coldplay), Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 (Bach), Selections from The Four Seasons (Vivaldi)
The theme from “Forrest Gump” and “Falling Slowly” were special requests by Rachael and Brian, and we were happy to arrange these pieces for them.
Congratulations Brian and Rachael!
