First Year

Expected the first year with Special Event Music to be light, but we've been privileged
to be invited to enhance the end of life celebrations and liturgical services of many people...sometimes 3-4 a week! A professional funeral goer now, as they say. It gives me such joy to ease the burden of grieving families, and to help them choose the right music to make their event SPECIAL.

Corporate business picking up as well, with a noticeable return to patriotic themes for business meetings. We love to sing the great songs that express our pride for our country!

Save the date of May 1, for the Zonta Club of Syracuse's annual presentation of the coveted Crystal Award (this year awarded to Mayor Stephanie Miner and County Exec.Joanie Mahoney), plus community service grants, and awards & scholarships to girls and women in our community.
Motivational Humorist Yvonne Conte will speak on the positive power of humor in our lives, and
SPECIAL EVENT MUSIC will provide a half hour of inspirational music! Event is being held at the beautiful, Traditions at the Links, in East Syracuse. Hope you'll plan to come?
