Impressive BPM and MPG at Key Cadillac
October 24, 2014

My fingers were flying across the piano keyboard as guests arrived at the beautiful showroom at Key Cadillac in Edina.

The guests had one thing on their minds ... to view the unveiling of Key Cadillac's hot new vehicles. They were not disappointed! I wondered if any of these vehicles' MPG's (Miles Per Gallon) could surpass my BPM's (Beats Per Minute)!

Behold the epitome of luxury! Mike and Penni took us through many amazing features on the ESV. With handpicked woods, premium leathers and the Bose surround sound, why would an owner ever want to leave this gorgeous vehicle?

When Mike described the MPG of the ELR Luxury Electric Hybrid Coupe, the numbers were right up there with my BPM's (Beats Per Minute) on the piano . . .  a stunning 82 MPG from electricity stored in the battery plus electricity developed by the generator!

If you missed the unveiling last night, don't let that stop you! The wonderful people at Key Cadillac would love to have you take a look!

When I played 'Pink Cadillac', I got to wondering if they have one on their lot. I'll have to check that out the next time I'm there!

Remax Open House with live piano music!
August 11, 2014

A beautiful home in North Oaks was the site for my music.

Remax agent extraordinaire, Pam Joel, wanted elegant piano music to greet her visitors when they visited her Open House event.

I couldn't have had a lovelier spot to set up my portable piano. As I played, the vaulted floor-to-ceiling windows gave me a perfect view of the scenic mallard pond. Visitors were delighted with the many unique features of this home.  Guests were treated to delicious hors d'oeuvres and wine. They relaxed in the dining room to chat and listen to my music.

This resident certainly likes it here!

Pam Joel and her assistant, Rebecca, were the gracious hosts. They let me join them to try out the treats! Pam and one of the guests asked me to play some dance music, so I pulled out a swing tune and the two of them cut loose on the living room hardwood floor.

This house will make a perfect home for some lucky couple or family.

Could it be you? Contact Pam and she will be happy to schedule a showing just for you!

A joyous wedding indeed!
December 18, 2013

by Sharon Planer, Pianist for Parties

From the moment this couple walked into my office, their enthusiasm and excitement was contagious. As we talked about their vision for their wedding day and as I played samples of piano wedding music, certain songs and artists surfaced that they really loved. We came up with a great play list for the pre ceremony, ceremony and post ceremony music. It was an elegant mix of some older romantic standards with contemporary songs. I was glad they wanted a wedding pianist for their ceremony music. They were a delightful couple to get to know!

Rev. Leslie Johnson gave a heartfelt and intimate message which brought tears and laughter.

From my place at the grand piano I was not able to view the Handfasting Ceremony. The photo below shows the brides' mothers and Rev. Leslie as they braided the three strands of ribbon. The brides clasped their hands together and Rev. Leslie fastened their hands with the braided ribbon symbolizing their unity and oneness.

The Semple Mansion was a magical setting for this beautiful wedding. This couple wanted to find the perfect venue for their wedding day. It was fun to hear Rev. Leslie's story on how they knew the moment they entered the mansion that this was where they wanted to be married! Intimate, classy and beautiful...just like the brides!

I loved the song they requested for their recessional...'Walking on Sunshine". It was great fun to perform and it was obvious they had fun recessing!

Their wedding was one of the most joyous ceremonies I have experienced. I was glad I arrived early at the mansion so I could experience the exuberant joy that was taking place.  There were happy voices and much laughter as the brides and their wedding party traversed through the mansion and outdoors for photos. It was not uncommon for cheering to break out!  Even though they had to endure the chilly outdoors temps, you could tell by their smiles, that this was a joyous wedding indeed!

The happy couple!  http://www.brioart.com/
