Dinner Party

Strings of Elegance had a unique opportunity to play for the Tanner Lectures Board Dinner, a gathering of presidents from several universities, including Stanford, Yale, Princeton, and Harvard. What an honor to play for such a prestigious group! The president of University of Utah expressed "we enjoyed your wide variety of music, from Beethoven to Beatles."

Joanna & Steve

We always enjoy playing at Log Haven in Millcreek Canyon. Even on a hot July evening, Joanna and Steve's outdoor wedding was a delight. The abundant shade and the cool canyon breeze couldn't have been more perfect.

For their ceremony, we sat under this regal evergreen. We played Handel's La Rejoussance for the procession of the three flower girls and one ring bearer, and the bride and groom, who descended the steps together.

We played Purcell's Trumpet Tune for the recessional, then a few more celebratory pieces while they took photos and moved to the outdoor patio for dinner.

We had a great time accompanying the meal, and an even better time eating it! Yes, the bride and groom invited the quartet to take a break and enjoy some dinner. We all agreed that it was perhaps the very best wedding meal we have ever eaten. Delicious!

For the couple's first dance, we played John Lennon's Grow Old With Me. They foxtrotted around the table and kissed when their guests tapped their water glasses. It was a beautiful wedding. Thanks, Joanna and Steve, for asking us to be a part of it! Best wishes to you.
