What a lovely Summer we are having for weddings!

I sang and played last Friday with 7 wonderful singers creating the University Church Chamber Choir accompanied by William Woods. The atmosphere was vibrant throughout the ceremony and the church looked beautiful with sunlight streaming in the windows.

Our repertoire included Mendelssohn’s – Lift thine eyes and Salut D’amour – Elgar with a mix of Nick Drake’s – Northern Sky (performed by an excellent guitar and piano duo!)  It was an eclectic mix to say the least!

Another beautiful wedding of Emma and Nicholas in University Church, Dublin was performed by Grace Notes String Trio. We sat under the ‘Golden Balcony’ and the resonance was perfect.  Complete with no less than 8 bridesmaids! The ceremony included music ranging from Schubert’s Ave Maria to The Beatles – All you need is love!

It was another beautiful day, topped off by a drinks canapĂ© al fresco in Bewley’s Hotel- Balsbridge. People were commenting on our diverse range of styles, we played everything from Finnegans wake to Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and inbetween some popular favourites, someone to watch over me and what a wonderful world ( a personal favourite)

In the historic Trim Town we performed at another wedding of Anna Louise and Dave. The repertoire included the magical Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber and the all time classic Nella Fantasia, sung beautifully by Hannah Evans. 20140717_131159

    Grace Notes Quartet performed at a very special birthday celebration at my home in Celbridge on Saturday 10th May 2008. As my guests were unaware of the arrangements for the night they were delighted with the music and ambiance provided by the Quartet and the comments by all afterwards could not have been more complimentary. I left the choice of music entirely to the Quartet and I found them warm, charming and exceptionally professional to deal with. I wish them every success in the future
