We had been looking forward to performing at @620loftgarden for the longest time. This place did not disappoint! The skies cleared just in time for @gghassemlou and Patrick’s wedding on Saturday and this is the backdrop to their wedding ceremony.

We performed classical music during prelude, Entrance Of The Queen Of Sheba (Handel) for the wedding party,
Canon in D (Pachelbel) for the bride and Viva La Vida (Coldplay) for the recessional. We then performed 60 minutes of contemporary music during cocktail hour.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

Yesterday we had the absolute honor of performing for Pebble and Matt’s wedding out in Southold.

Guys, this backyard wedding was amazing!

From the most phenomenal decor, to my personal favorite flowers, (peonies and sunflowers) to the most heartfelt vows, to the most fabulous food, this wedding had it all.

Congratulations from everyone on our team! We love you both!

Truth...I love amazing food. Truth...eating here last year was one of the best culinary experiences that I have had. Truth...When I ate here, I made it a personal mission to play weddings in this gorgeous space. Mission accomplished!

Thank you to @angweddingsny for trusting us to provide exceptional music for your clients. I am hopeful that this was the first of many future collaborations at this beautiful venue!

After a rare, (and wonderful) weekend off, we are back at it this week. We will be performing again tomorrow for @rmhnewyork @guastavinosnyc and have an awesome wedding coming up in #southampton on Saturday.

While I will be busy planning the music for these two events, I am simultaneously trying to get plans in motion for our CD release party/concert. I am looking for a hip space that offers food and drinks for purchase where our fans can come and enjoy an evening of our music and grab a copy of our CD if they wish.

Please let me know in the comments below if you have any suggestions. It would be helpful if it were in Western Suffolk or Nassau counties and preferably by a train line for those that want to come out from the city. Thanks in advance for your ideas!

Tomorrow marks the one week anniversary of our debut album, “Songs of Our Youth”. Thank you to everyone who has purchased it. I am so proud to hear that the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

If you haven’t grabbed your copy yet, you can find it on #itunes #spotify #pandora #googleplaymusic #deezer #napster #amazon and anywhere else that digital music is sold. If you’d like to own a physical copy of the CD, please shoot me a DM so I have an idea of how many to order.

So many awesome creatives were a part of this project and I couldn’t have done it without them all... Recording Studio: @covecitysoundstudios

Well...we did it!
🤩
Our debut album, “Songs of Our Youth” is now available everywhere music is sold. Please go to your favorite digital music provider and grab your copy today! (Link in bio)
📀
This wouldn’t have been possible without our awesome team of musicians and all of our friends and fans who have supported us throughout the process.

On a personal note, this is the culmination of a dream that I have had since I was a teenager. This experience has taught me a great deal and I am very proud to have our music out there in the world. 😍
I sincerely hope that you enjoy it!

I have been royally sucking at social media these days. Between a very busy wedding season and the loss of my #woofsistant @kyrathewheaten I really haven’t been able to keep up.
...
I did want to post today, however, because today is the 4th Anniversary of @luminoussounds
...
This little company has grown exponentially in the past four years and I am very excited to see what we accomplish in the coming months and years ahead.
...
None of this success would have been possible without my fabulous team of musicians who not only play their asses off day in and day out, but really do care about each and every one of our clients and their events. No matter how big or small a function, this team gives their all, every day and for that I am eternally grateful.
...
In addition, this never would have been possible without the love and support of my little family. Business ownership instigates some of the highest highs and lowest lows, but I am very grateful for all that we have accomplished and to continue along on this journey.

Guys...It’s really happening.
😃
Our album, “Songs of Our Youth” is in cue to be processed on all of the internet-based platforms. As of yesterday, it is already available for pre-order on @googleplaymusic
📀
This has been a personal goal of mine for a long time and I am so excited to see it all come to fruition. Big thanks to everyone who has cheered for us, worked with us, financially sponsored us, and simply just like what we do and became our fans. We could t have done it without your support.
🙌🏻👏🏻🙌🏻
Stay tuned for updates regarding the official release date and the CD launch party! We’d love to see you all there.
🎉

I am so excited to share our behind the scenes video with you.
...
We recorded our debut album, “Songs of Our Youth” at Cove City Sound Studios back in April. The album contains 11 of our favorite arrangements to perform. With music from the 1960’s thru 2003, this album contains some of the biggest hits from varying genres of rock/pop music.
...
It is my goal that everyone who listens will find at least one track that brings them back to a certain time in their life and be able to reflect upon that time with a smile, a chuckle or perhaps a (what was I thinking) head shake.
...
The album is fun, generally upbeat and really showcases what it was like being a kid in the 80’s and 90’s.
...
“Songs of Our Youth” is available for pre-order today on Google Play and will be available on other platforms in the coming days.

Come back tomorrow to see some behind the scenes footage from our day in the studio.

Is it wrong that I am still obsessed with this song?
🤷🏼‍♀️
Recorded in 1992, “Disarm” by The Smashing Pumpkins was the third single released off of the album Siamese Dream. Billy Corgan has stated that the song represents the shaky relationship that he had with his parents while growing up.
👪
In 1994 Disarm shot to the top of the US Mainstream Rock charts earning a peak position of number 5. The song is still popular today and is widely played on alternative rock stations across the globe.
📀
While I am still in love with the song, I am even more obsessed with our arrangement of the tune. I hope you agree.
🎻💕🎻

You did it! You made it to Friday!
🎉
We have quite a number of new fans here so I thought I’d tell you all a bit about myself and my business, Luminous Sounds.
🙋🏼‍♀️
When I began playing the viola at the age of eight, I used to practice all of the time. I loved playing but, I struggled hardcore with understanding rhythm. I am horrible when it comes to math, memorizing numbers and computations. Sadly, (for me) when playing music you also use that side of the brain. So what was a mathematically challenged, aspiring violist to do?
She played along to the radio, learning songs by ear. As a result I have always had an excellent ear, can improvise rather easily, (although it still scares me to death) and play well in tune. This also caused me to have a passion for performing current, popular music off of the radio.
📻
Luminous Sounds was born in 2014 and has since become Long Island’s premier String Ensemble. We specialize in performing exceptional arrangements of today’s most popular music using traditional string instruments and percussion. We are most often found performing for private and corporate events but also frequently play in collaboration with other bands/artists both in concert, and in the recording studio.
🎻
While driving this musical bus takes up the bulk of my time, I also enjoy some non-musical endeavors...
🎶
I love taking road trips with my husband and pup. I love trying different foods and cocktails...I especially dig tasting menus! I also have recently begun volunteering with the local ambulance corps and am excited to begin my EMT class this summer. 🚑
Thanks for reading my long post! Let me know a bit about yourself and what you enjoy in the comments below!

We are getting really excited for the upcoming release of our debut album!
🎻
Luminous Sounds is actively in a state of growth and I have so much to share with you in the coming week. Of the many new things coming your way is the release of a single from the album.
