What Monica's services include
Music Selection: Monica understands that the music selection process might be unfamiliar to most brides. To streamline the process, Monica will gladly provide you with a free demo, suggestion sheet and wedding music planner. You can also listen on line to the entire demo. She is happy to assist you in choosing music and placing it appropriately in the service. Monica recommends that you discuss your music selections no later than 4 weeks prior to your wedding, especially if you are planning on printing programs.
Depending on what is most convenient for you, Monica will gladly correspond via email, phone, Skype or meet in person to discuss your music selections. Once you have made your selections, Monica will contact the organist and/or other musicians to confirm the list of songs and to provide all necessary sheet music for them. You do not need to be the middle person.
Soloist, Cantor, Music Director:
Monica will act as soloist and cantor. In the absence of a music director, Monica will assume this responsibility (at no additional cost) providing direction and queues for other musicians.
Day of Your Wedding:
On the day of your wedding, Monica will meet with the organist or other musicians one hour prior to the wedding start time to rehearse and coordinate queues. A rehearsal before the day of the wedding should not be necessary as professional musicians are expected to have the music learned and prepared in advance. Additionally, Monica will coordinate with the presider and other wedding professionals and planners to ensure everything is in place before you make your grand entrance.
In the absence of a wedding coordinator, Monica is also available, if necessary, to line up and organize the family members and wedding party before the first processional at no additional cost to you. This is just one more way to put your mind at ease.
