It was the perfect day for Amanda & Chris today.  They join together with family and friends for a beautiful ceremony held at the Chapel of Agnes Scott College.  This wedding was completely donated by many vendors and venue including Atlanta Wedding Loft, Frosted Pumpkin, Blue Orchid Productions, Agnes Scott College and myself to name a few. I do thank you for your service…both the bride and groom serve in the armed forces.

Ansley Golf Club

November 18, 2011

Oh, what a night (not the Billy Joel tune)!  As I’m on my way to play at the Ansley Golf Club for Dinner, guess what I encounter? A flat tire! Yes, but luckily I’m only a mile away and always get to my events extra early incase of surprises like this one.  I call the country club and let them know what happened and they send someone right away to pick me up.  I still get there in plenty of time to get situated and play for dinner.  They had a great group of members and guests ready to relax and enjoy a delicious meal with some live music to accompany it all. Afterwards, my dear husband met me and took care of the situation and all is well! 🙂

Choral Concert

November 17, 2011

On this Thursday evening, I played for a Middle and High School Choral Concert in Sandy Springs. “Three Russian Folk Songs” and “Cross the Wide Missouri” The vocals were beautifully harmonized. It was a pleasure to play with such a great group of young performers.

Simpsonwood

November 5, 2011

What a beautiful autumn day! Today I played in a charming chapel at Simpsonwood – Conference and Retreat Center. The weather was perfect with a slight breeze. The colors surrounding the area were breathtaking. The property has long trails where you’ll feel enveloped in the fall season.

Here I played for a wedding ceremony for a lovely couple. The chapel has a grand piano as well as an organ. You’ll feel like you went back in time and may want to stay a while.  Peaceful and serene are two words I would use to describe this quaint setting.

Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center

October 29, 2011

The Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center is located in Buford.

It’s a museum, event venue and has great walking trails for the nature lover. The event facility has massive windows to let in the natural light and lets the environment from outside be seen from the inside at every turn. They have a grand piano in excellent condition. It was a pleasure to play on it during the cocktail hour of a wedding that took place there.  The bride and groom selected music from the Beatles, Sinatra and Jazz artists to fashion their classy theme.

Fundraiser with a Mission

October 8, 2011

This is the Evergreen Resort and Conference Center at Stone Mountain. Here I played at a fundraising event. I first played by the beautiful large windows you see in the photo. The combination of music and nature was very tranquil for me as well as for the guests. Afterwards the piano was moved into one of the ballrooms. There I played while the guests enjoyed their meal by playing contemporary Christian music.

Ansley Golf Club

October 7, 2011

The Ansley Golf Club is located in the heart of Atlanta.  The golf course views are breathtaking and the nature surroundings are enchanting.  At this country club they have a seven foot Steinway grand piano.  Here I played for two hours during happy hour as members enjoyed a early dinner and engaged in good conversation.

Private Wedding Celebration

October 1, 2011

This event was at a private party celebrating a newly wed couple.  The parents had a gathering of a hundred people over to celebrate their daughters’ marriage.  The piano was in flawless condition. It was in tune and looked great, you could see the owners really appreciated music and the design of the piano.

I played soft jazz with a mix of love songs to create a enjoyable backdrop to the conversations that were held around the home.
