Funicular: it looks like a rollar coaster but it goes really slow and shuttles hotel and wedding guests in a big elevator type contraption up and down the mountain side.
Our ride up the funicular with all our instruments and music.
It was a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony. But don't let the picture fool you. There was much wind and rain.
We took shelter under a large umbrella. One of us even played up on the rocks in order to stay out of the rain. It was eventful, but we pulled it off without a hitch. Afterward, we played for the cocktail hour (which got moved indoors).
It was so fun to have Rebekah (my sister) back for a gig so many years later - she was a member of the quartet from 2002-2004 before she moved to Tucson, AZ to get her violin performance undergraduate degree. She is now working on her Master's in Violin Performance in Conneticut at the Hart School of Music so it was special to have her in town to play with us!
