Choosing music for your wedding should be one of the planning stage’s more enjoyable decisions, and it should be done together as a couple. While selecting music to celebrate your big day can be overwhelming (like everything else about the wedding), it can be simplified if you separate the decisions into ‘categories.’ There is appropriate music for religious ceremonies, as well as secular and ethnic weddings.
Welcome to # 23 Lenox Place, a grand Edwardian-style home designed by renowned architect Guy Mariner. Built in 1904, the three-story house features restrained elements that were, at the time of construction, a major deviation from the over-opulent Beaux Arts period that was coming to an end. Along a private street in a coveted neighborhood, No. 23 is one of twenty-three homes that were built between the years of 1903 and 1906. Its most recent owners, Dr. Coy and Rachel Fitch, made this their home for the last quarter of a century, where entertained friends and family, as well as gathered with colleagues and community leaders to raise money for civic causes that were important to them. Now, take a deep breath and enjoy your step back in time, while each designer brings you aesthetically to the present.

Music is one of the best ways to personalize your wedding: It adds to the beauty and romance of your ceremony; and at the reception, it has the power to get your guests up dancing and having fun all night long.
What Valentine’s Day would be complete without a hot-house rose, love letter words, a silver moon, dancing to ‘just one of those things’ and a table for two? How about a sight-seeing tour, dinner by candlelight at The Siding? The side-car setting is wonderful and—between you and me—the only place to eat in Peru, Ind., birthplace and early home to Cole Porter, one of the most famous, most prolific American composers, whose romantic lyrics are so easy to love.
Longtime executive producer Paul Blake is in the midst of his final season at The Muny. With three shows left of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and an ending run next week of Bye Bye Birdie, which he directs, Blake took a few moments to muse over what he calls his ‘second act.’
