What a joyful occasion!
I had a brass quintet perform at my wedding nearly 30 years ago and my family still talks about what a wonderful service it was.
I would be honored to perform as a trumpet soloist with your church accompanist.
The typical fee for a trumpet soloist at a wedding in the Omaha/Lincoln, Nebraska area is $200. This fee is for the trumpet soloist only and does not include payment for the accompanist.
A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the appointment. The deposit enables me to start working out the details with the accompanist of your choosing.
The balance is expected prior to the beginning of the service. (It is awkward for the musicians to go through the receiving line asking for payment.)
I currently offer a 20% discount (-$40) if payment in full is made at the time of the booking.
As part of my service, I will provide the accompanist with the printed music, if you choose from the selections that follow.
Given that some of these compositions were written long ago, sometimes the same piece of music is known by several different names and sometimes different composers are listed for exactly the same melody.
Many different versions of the same piece of music exist in different keys and even different numbers of measures.
By choosing from the list below and having me provide the accompanist with the print music, we will literally “be on the same page,” thus eliminating confusion and possible “surprises”.
Of course, I am willing to perform other selections as well as service music, if requested.
