a bit of News for early Spring!

Every year in early March around the time of my birthday it is the signal for ....spring coming soon!
This weekend don't forget to "spring forward"...getting a jumpstart on more daylight time :)

We have a few events coming up which are noteworthy:

1. We recently donated a Prize via the WOTY (wedding of the year) which is produced every year by
Many prizes are given out there to brides and grooms from ipods to TV's, to day of coordinators and to the prize we gave which is:
Harp and Violin music for Prelude and Processionals.
The Winner: Joanne and Justin for their Wedding to be held at St. Thomas Church in Brookville. We are looking forward to being a part of their beautiful day!

2. Very recently Capriccio Ensemble was reserved for a wedding at Oheka Castle for 3/27.
The bride and groom love the music of Vivaldi, and Handel and Mozart. We are looking forward to a very classy evening at the beautiful and unique Oheka Castle located in Huntington NY. We are providing a String Trio of 2 violins and cello.

3. Also quite recently and after meeting our lovely bride to be at a bridal showcase held at the County Center in White Plains NY, we are now reserved for both a wedding ceremony to be held at Manhattanville College inside Reid Castle's Chapel with cocktail hour to follow at the Fountainhead of New Rochelle. This will take place on 3/28/10 and we are providing a String Trio of 1 violin, 1 viola and 1 cello for both the ceremony and cocktail hour.

4. Capriccio Ensemble is recommended at the stunning, rencently rennovated Surf Club of New Rochelle. I am a fan of Chris Gizzo who is the General Manager there and also of Jaime Gizzo and his beautiful new wife whose wedding our string quartet performed at in December and I have to mention Artie, the new and so energetic and helpful coordinator and designer at the Surf Club. He's got some great ideas and concepts. If your wedding will be held at the Surf Club, you are in really good hands in terms of flowers, lighting, decor and much more!
We just found out that the owner of the Surf Club, Sal Gizzo is getting married on April 3rd and we are now scheduled to provide a String Trio (perhaps with flute) to perform at the ceremony which will be held at the Surf Club! This is so exciting and Mr. Gizzo and his fiance look so happy and radiant. We are honored to be included in their special day and wish them all the best always!
