Quartet performs at historic Cathedral
We were graciously greeted by Father Marek Bozek as we entered and stood in awe at the beautifully restored Cathedral. It is simply breathtaking. As musicians, we were particularly amazed by the 4.5 seconds it took for our sound to reverberate through the hall. We played a full wedding mass with tennor Brendan Lally. I was moved to be welcomed and play in this Cathedral. It was a joy.

Duet Strings Play from the Balcony
On a beautiful, cool September Saturday afternoon recently, a duet from the Heritage String Quartet played for a wedding from the balcony of this small, rural church on the grounds of the Daniel Boone home in Defiance, MO. This chapel was moved to the grounds from another site in the area and its’ tall steeple and white clapboards take you back to another era. The church seats approximately 50 people and on this sunny day it was awash in sunlight through the tall windows. The musicians had to climb a narrow, spiral staircase to reach the rear balcony, literally lifting the cello over our heads to reach the top! A duet was a perfect choice for this small, intimate wedding.
One of the services that the quartet offers is to travel to weddings outside the St. Louis area. We have had 2 fun trips this summer. The first was a trip to a winery in central Illinois where we played for the wedding on a beautiful bluff followed by a reception in a covered party area. We were treated to a stay in the local B&B following the festivities! It was fun for us to hear the B&B owner tell us about the ghost stories from the past!
On our most recent road trip, we travelled to Iowa for a wedding at a convention center. This couple had been together for many years and wanted their wedding to be especially memorable. Inviting the quartet to play for their dinner was an important part of the festivities for them. We used our new portable, sound system to enhance the quartet sound in a dinner setting. After our stay overnight, we followed our iphone dierctions to find the nearest and only Starbucks before we started our drive home. Not finding it ( and desperate by now for coffee), we had to ask the locals to find out it was INSIDE the local Target store. We made a u-turn and headed right back to Target before our easy ride home.
