music @ the church

hey

so my church has specific rules for the music choice. I dont want to go with the church's music group, i'd like to book my own. Any recommendations? I'll have to give the priest a list of the songs so he can give the 'ok'.

    What are you looking for? An organist? String quartet? Christian rock band?

    Try Samuel Yeung. He leads a string quartet and I've worked with them and seen them perform at weddings and other stuff. They're great.

    (Note the double L in the email address. I got his contact info from someone else, so I'm not sure whether this is a typo.)

    Is this a Catholic wedding? If so, you may still need a vocalist, unless you're having the psalm read.

    Good luck! Feel free to ask again if he doesn't work out or if he can't direct you to someone else. I have a lot of musician friends.

    We're doing a Catholic ceremony read, but are reading the Psalm.  We are using a violinist named Jill Daley.  She also plays the piano.  She has performed with others before as well - so you could contact her about the group options.

    What info are you looking for? I've played with him, and he's great. The bride at the wedding where I saw him & his quartet perform did mention to me how helpful he was and how great it was to work with him. But I don't really know his credentials or anything, and that's the only contact info I have for him.

    Oh, you can tell him that you were referred by someone from the Newman Centre.
