One of the questions I’m most often asked is where to put music during the Catholic Ceremony. So here you go!
Individual candle ceremony
Lighting of Unity Candle
Sign of Peace
Communion (choose 2 pieces)
Signing of Register (choose 2 pieces)
By far the most popular piece I’m asked to sing for the bride’s entrance is Nella Fantasia but it’s also suitable for the signing of the marriage register. I’m accompanied by Eoin O’Callaghan on piano and Aoife O’Donovan on flute. The beautiful flowers in the video are by Carrie O’Connor of Best of Buds Florist, Tralee
I provide singing lessons in Ballincollig and Douglas, Cork. This is an individual lesson with a small bit of theory and the emphasis will be on fun whilst teaching the student how to look after the voice. I will also prepare students for ABRSM vocal exams if required as well as Junior and Leaving certificate practicals. I’ve been singing for years, starting out in school choirs, musicals etc but this led to me damaging my voice as I had no guidance about how to look after it! When I began official voice lessons at the age of 18 I had to go backwards before I could progress so my aim is to prevent other young voices with potential from going through the same thing as I did! I am a fully qualified voice coach with a Bachelor of Music degree specialising in Vocal Performance. Drop me an email to email@example.com or give me a call on 085 7128843 for further details
I’m often asked if I have samples with piano and flute together so I’ve added a new recording of a beautiful piece by John Rutter called A Clare Benediction Voice: Siobhan Oliver, Flute: Aoife O’Donovan, Piano: Eoin O’Callaghan
Due to a postponement of my travel plans I now have some availability for the remainder of 2010. I have a special offer at the moment for a trio of voice, piano and flute for any new bookings for this year so drop me an e mail for further information siobhanoliver@ gmail.com We’re based in Cork but have no problem travelling.
Had to share my news with you all. I just won the Best Singer Award in the Senior Recital Competition at the Cork School of Music! I’m delighted. Great practice for my final voice exam on June 3rd. I have a few mp3 clips from it that I’ll post up in the next few days.
One of the most popular pieces for weddings is Lakmé’s Flower Duet and as you can hear from below, it can be done as a solo pieces as well despite its’ name! This is me with my flautist, Aoife O’Donovan and pianist, Eoin O’Callaghan
I’ve been singing at weddings for almost 4 years now and have come across some great suppliers along the way. So I’m going to post links to some of them here over the next few weeks
