LET OUR MUSIC BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY
"WE THOUGHT KAREN AND PAUL WERE AMAZING. THEY WERE SO HELPFUL WHEN CHOOSING SONGS AND PREPARING FOR THE BIG DAY! EVERYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT THEM ON THE DAY AND STILL ARE! THEY WERE THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY WEDDING DAY! THANKS SO MUCH! DEBORAH AND BARRY". CARLOW AUGUST 2010
We have been very fortunate to have been invited to sing all over the world and at home here in Ireland, at major musical events and private functions. Most of all we love singing at weddings, for it gives us an opportunity to perform music that is specially chosen for its spirituality and romance, the quality and diversity of which would rarely be capable of being performed at weddings.
Music plays such an important part of your wedding day.The choice of music and accompaniment can be so crucial to the atmosphere in the church. To this end we have very carefully prepared a music package that can be tailored to your musical & financial needs. We have had our accompanying music professionally arranged and recorded by some of Ireland's finest arrangers and musicians. Our specially commissioned backing music is exclusive to us.
It has been the experience of many wedding couples that the church sound systems have been inadequate, to produce high quality renditions of the music they love. Often the sound is distorted and the singing incoherent. To this end, we have invested in our own independent professional sound equipment which ensures a musical experience second to none for you and your guests.
We would be delighted to guide you through your musical needs for your wedding day. We are ever increasingly being asked to provide our Spiritual and romantic music for the church ceremony. We can even choreograph your musical entrance and journey up the aisle. "Karen & Paul, although highly professional, are as approachable as they are talented, bringing a unique service to couples navigating the minefield of "music for the big day". Their passion and professionalism will allow you to relax and enjoy your wedding and will have you and your guests talking long after the day is over." (Personal Wedding Planner 2010/11 magazine)
Please read a sample of the many testimonials we have received by our satisfied clients. They have assured us that our music was received and enjoyed by their guests of all ages.
Karen Lynch was born in Canada and made her stage debut aged four. She was encouraged by her musical mother to study singing. Her award winning performances resulted in music scholarships to the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto and the State University of New York, where she was trained by some of North America's top voice coaches and choral conductors, including Dr. David Ouchterlony, Elmer Isler, Lukas Foss and John Rutter. She successfully auditioned for the Emma Kirkby Master Class in the International Music School in Dartington, U.K. She has performed on stage with the world renowned soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. Now living in Ireland, Karen’s musical career has been so wonderfully enhanced by her partnership with Paul.
Paul Redmond first caught the attention of audiences with his live performances on RTE in the Tops of the Town Competition winning the awards for the Most Promising Entertainer and Most Outstanding Singer. He has studied with the renowned Martin Dempsey who inspired Paul to develop what has been described as a "golden tenor voice". Paul launched his professional career with a series of very successful concerts, receiving rave reviews. His CD's include "The Legacy" a selection of Moores melodies produced and arranged by David Hayes of Riverdance fame, recorded at the suggestion of Claddagh Records.
