Premier Brass always try to accommodate any particular musical requests and having a professional arranger in the group means they are often able to arrange specific pieces of music for that special occasion.
WEDDING MUSIC BY PREMIER BRASS The Ceremony Whether in a church or at another venue Premier Brass can play fanfares and processional music for the arrival and entry of the bride. Many couples prefer well-known traditional pieces such as the Trumpet Voluntary, but they can play any specific pieces you may prefer. They will provide the accompaniment to your hymns, and also any music you may choose whilst you sign the register. At the end of your ceremony Premier Brass can play your choice of music for the exit of the bride and groom, followed by your guests. Again traditional music such as The Wedding March by Mendelssohn is very popular, but you may have your own ideas. If you are not sure what you might like they will be very happy to discuss repertoire with you. Premier Brass can also provide arrangements for any special piece of music.
