This song makes me smile and cry at the same time, I love it so much.
I had a morning wedding at Leu Gardens where I played electric violin to backing tracks. The main song request was A Thousand Years for the Processional and Recessional, but starting at different parts in the song. For this I made 2 separate tracks with different loops so I could anticipate longer or shorter needs. This is an example of why it's good to also be somewhat adequate at audio editing within a DAW! I use Logic Pro.
Amy & Luis got to come back to perform at the Cocoa Beach Race (usually a Half Marathon but changed to a 10K this year due to the circumstances). Last year we had a great time and this year was even better! It was nice to see some familiar faces.
I got to use my sign that was made for me last week at the Drive-Thru Senior Expo. We also saw a big crab in the sand! It scared me and I screamed but it was so cool to see.
We can't wait to perform at the next race :-)
Amy & Luis played a wedding at Estate on the Halifax today and loved the beautiful acoustics in the chapel. The bride walked to "One Song" from Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and the recessional was one of our favorites, "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)" made famous by Natalie Cole.
The cocktail hour took place at the Snow White Cottage, surrounded by beautiful gardens and ponds. We loved watching the turtles swim by!
Amid the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, many live performances were cancelled or switched to live stream. Brevard Symphony Orchestra is among the many orchestras adapting to the current conditions.
Here is a screenshot from Brevard Symphony Orchestra's trailer for the most recent concert, featuring Beethoven Symphony No. 6. You can see me at the front of the picture with my super long ponytail!
This gorgeous wedding took place in the middle of Downtown Orlando at The Balcony. I especially enjoyed the view and playing the Star Wars Main Theme for the Groom's entrance.
It was also nice that a high-rise condo resident found me on my way out to ask for information for a wedding!
It was so cool to drive up to my event and see that the sponsors had printed my face on a sign! They let me keep it :-) This generous morning event in Titusville was hosted by Viera Voice and had a lot of sponsors providing free health resources and items for seniors. The live music portion was sponsored by Guardian Ad Litem and I am so thankful!
This was such a fun wedding for Amy & Luis, everyone was so nice and fun to be around, and it was especially fun because the processional music requests included video game music! Luis is an expert at VG music, check out his band GG CAT for more.
It was another scaled down wedding due to the pandemic, so the venue moved to F&D Kitchen and Bar in Lake Mary.
The couple requested a classical prelude, Lazy Afternoons and Dearly Beloved (Kingdom Hearts) for the processional, No Matter Where You Are (Us the Duo) for the recessional, and modern pop for the cocktail hour. We threw in some Disney tunes since they met as dancers at Disney, and it was great to hear everyone singing along :-)
Cindy Zingerella at Engaging Events did a phenomenal job planning the wedding and the day went so smoothly for us, really was a pleasure to work with her and can't wait to see them all again next year.
Amy & Luis will return for their big 1 Year Anniversary Party!
It was wonderful to get to play in a full orchestra again! The concert was originally scheduled for March but was postponed due to the pandemic. We sat far apart from each other and had special safety protocols.

I first heard Beethoven's 6th when I was a kid watching Disney's Fantasia and I loved it! I couldn't decide if I wanted to be the conductor, the violins, or a pony.
