1st United Methodist – St. Augustine, FL

To start off the Christmas music season, I was invited to play for a very sweet and special event at First United Methodist in downtown St. Augustine. The church’s children’s ministry had put together an Advent Prayer Walk through the sanctuary, with decorated stations to represent each part of the Christmas story.

The church has a beautiful sanctuary (and great acoustics!), so it was a delight to spend a few hours playing all the traditional carols. Happy December!

A beautiful Christmas wedding at St. Mark’s! I always love to play in historic places, and this church was built in the 1850’s. Bonus history lesson for you….one of its founding members was the first governor of Florida, and it was occupied by Union soldiers during the civil war.

For my part in the ceremony, I played during guest seating and for the bridal party entrance. The rest of the music was done on the church’s stately pipe organ.

Prelude ~ Arioso (Bach), Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach), Butterfly Waltz (Brian Crain)

Bridal Party Entrance ~ Canon in D (Pachelbel)

Because who can pass up a photo op with the Chick fil A cow…am I right?

This was a fun event at the Fleming Island restaurant – I was invited to play for Renaissance Night! Decorations, games in the parking lot, staff in costume and live music 🙂

And I will say that a 6 foot tall harp is always fun in unexpected places! I love having the chance to answer questions and talk with people who have never seen one in person 🙂

Honored to be invited back again this year to play for the Donor Memorial Event with RTI Donor Services. This is such a special event to be part of, and its so touching to hear each family share about their loved one. One Ocean Resort had just the right atmosphere for the day.

So thankful for families who, even in the most difficult times, are generously willing to help save or improve the life of another through organ and tissue donation!

This was such a fun event to play! Osprey Village went all out to plan a spectacular “Dinner and a Movie” event 🙂 I was invited to play some dinner music, before Cleopatra came on the big screen. The whole room became ancient Egypt, as you can see from the impressive backdrop, lighting and columns.  To suit the mood, I did some classic movie themes, a little Broadway, as well as some golden-era classics. A great evening!
