Outstanding Voices the Highlight of Ann Arbor Wedding

The urge to applaud occurred several times during the wedding of Kristin and Scott earlier this month at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Ann Arbor. Several of her friends sang and it was evident that these voices were the product of years of training. As four classically trained musicians ourselves, we thoroughly appreciated the Patrice Seibel’s “Ave Maria” by Bach/Gounod, “Pie Jesu” sung by Alexandra Brock and Anne Horak. Stephanie Layton and Alex Michaels sang a lovely version of “Morning Has Broken” and the ever beautiful, “The Prayer”, sung by Felipe Gonzalez and Jen Sese. In addition to these beautiful songs, Kristin and Scott selected great pieces for us to play including Debussy’s Claire DeLune, The Flower Duet by Lakme and Rhapsody on a Paganini Theme by Rachmaninoff. We played the traditional Bridal Chorus and Wedding March with Dr. Joy Schroeder on organ. It made for a majestic processional and recessional. The bridesmaids were in tasteful floor length gowns and carried sprays of calla lilies. It was an elegant affair.
The elegance continued at the reception, held at The Inn at St. Johns. We had the pleasure o f playing for the cocktail hour and per Kristine and Scott’s wishes, performed many Gershwin pieces, Sinatra and other old jazz standards. Her guests were a lot of fun and we heard several singing along! The dinner was held in the beautiful atrium and guests enjoyed the evening with the high energy music of the Jerry Ross Band. It was a night to remember for the newly married couple and their guests. We wish Kristin and Scott the very best as they begin married life together.
