Wedding at the Schermerhorn 3/19/17

On March 19, 2017 Silver Strings was in attendance above the chuppah for the nuptials of Tara and Brian in the lobby of the Schermerhorn.  We played a variety of contemporary songs for the prelude with a couple of traditional Jewish wedding songs including “Dodi Li” and “Erev Shel Shoshanim” mixed in.  When it came time for the processionals we brought the men down the aisle to “Game of Thrones” after which the groom was escorted down the aisle by his parents to Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida”.  Next came the bridesmaids to “A Thousand Years” followed by the bride, escorted by her parents, to “Canon in D”.  In a Jewish ceremony the bride circles the groom seven times before the rabbi begins the marriage service.  We continued with the Canon while this was done.  It was tricky for us  being above the chuppah because we couldn’t see the bride except for a few times when she came far enough out for us to see her.  It must have been ok because the rabbi began right after we cadenced.  After the ceremony we sent them back down the aisle as husband and wife to the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love”.

After the ceremony we quickly decamped to an area above the west lobby to play more Coldplay, Beatles, etc.  I want to mention the planner, Bruce Pittman, who in my opinion is one of the best I’ve worked with.  When we’re parked in the balcony of the Schermerhorn, we’re pretty much at the mercy of the coordinator for proper signals.  Bruce never lets us down.

It’s time to say Mazeltov! to Tara and Brian.  It was a pleasure working with them and their families.  May they have many, many years of happiness together.
