Cheri is a real prize at a party. She can do beautiful background but if anyone wants to sing, she goes into action. At my party, people gathered around to sing some old doo-wop girl group songs and she jumped in with an alto part. Ditto Gershwin and Porter standards. A classical pianist with great jazz chops and a Lutheran church music director as well ----- she's got it all. Loved her, can't wait to get her back.
Highly experienced in playing church and secular WEDDING CEREMONIES on piano and organ, she can assist in planning all aspects of your ceremony, including referring violinists, trumpet, other instrumentalists. For your RECEPTION OR PARTY, consider the sophisticated and swinging jazz standards of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Sinatra, Ella, and others. Her jazz combo also is available, with prices comparable to a DJ. Live is better! FINALLY, FOR A MORE ROCKIN' EVENT, Cheri plays instrumental versions of the hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s through today. With her state-of-the-art synthesizer delivering the authentic sound of each tune, your guests will be unable to resist singing along!
She is a full-time professional musician, B.A. Piano, UW-Eau Claire; M.S.M. Organ, Emory U, Atlanta. Count on Cheri for superb music and consummate professionalism!
