We always enjoy performing at Paletta, especially for outdoor weddings, as the back patio has an incredible view of lake Ontario, the guest are well taken care of, as they sit under the porch on several levels. This ceremony was very well organized, and everything just seemed to fit together in such a nice way. We performed Pachelbel Canon for the processional, and the incredibly beautiful Meditation from Thais for the signing. This song takes advantage of th violin and cello, as it combines some lovely writing in the mid to upper register of the violin, so that the sound seems to float above everyone. The cello part flows well, and grounds the ensemble with beautiful passages in the low to mid range. For the recessional, we performed the sprightly Handel Hornpipe II from the Royal Fireworks music.
