Suggestions

We want our performance to be meaningful to you. If your event has transition periods that require special music, we encourage you to pick the music that best fits your style and your event. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your music selection. As always, we encourage you to contact us with questions or to request our complimentary sampler CD.

Jewish Wedding Ceremony

Prelude:  The 20-30 minute period prior to the ceremony when guests are seated.  Frequently couples choose to have a mixture of classical and Jewish music played during the prelude.

Badeken:  This takes place in orthodox weddings immediately preceding the processional.  The groom and groomsmen cover the bride's face with her veil and then proceed directly to the ceremony.

Simon Tov
Od Yishoma

The Processional:  This music, for the entrance of the wedding party, can be performed or without cantor.

Chorsat Ha-Ekoliptus
Erev Ba
Erev Shel Shosanim
Hana'ava Babanot

The Ceremony:  Traditionally, there is no instrumental music during the ceremony.

The Recessional:  The music that begins immediately after the breaking of the glass.   It marks the end of the ceremony proper and is played while the wedding party exits from under the chuppah.  Siman Tov is a traditional recessional song, but many others are appropriate.

Dodi Li
Od Yishoma
Oseh Shalom/Friedman
Siman Tov

Postlude:  Celebratory music for the departure of the guests.

Tum Balalaika

We have several recommendations for pieces that can be used in each section of the the ceremony. We would be happy to either choose the music for you, or work with music you want to use.

We pride ourselves on our flexibility and experience.  If we don't have a piece in our repertoire, contact us. We may be able to get it or arrange it.
