ERIN: CHARLESTON WEDDING VIOLINIST
Erin's Background: As the daughter of a classical pianist, Erin has always been a lover of music and the creative arts. For the past twelve years she has performed professionally for weddings in both the solo and ensemble setting, accompanied praise & worship bands throughout the Charleston area, and has been featured on the albums of local indie artists including Joel T. Hamilton & Mechanical River, Slow Runner, and Run Dan Run. We are grateful that she is a part of the Lowcountry Pianist & Company team and we enjoyed getting to know her better through our recent interview!

Where Words Fail, Music Speaks
As we look ahead to the new year, our team has taken time to reflect on our experiences during 2019. We had the opportunity to be a part of almost 600 events where the power of music was evident. Below we have shared some of our favorite memories from performing at retirement centers, accompanying for local schools, and providing music for wedding ceremonies.
MUSIC FOR SENIORS
"Nathan, [my son], and I were playing at Savannah Grace and there were several of the residents in assisted living present who had pretty significant health challenges. They rolled one elderly lady into the room and she just stared out the window while we played. I suspected she was suffering from dementia, so we just pressed on with our program.
One lady mouthed the words to a Beatles tune while I played, and a couple of folks knew the words to “Can’t Help Falling In Love” that Nathan played on the ukulele. Still, the one lady continued to stare out the window... Nearing the end of the hour, I began to play "Edelweiss," from The Sound of Music. Suddenly, the lady appeared to awaken as she began to sing along...
We are beyond thrilled to welcome Sara K. Story as our new Event Services Coordinator!
"I have the opportunity to coordinate all performances for retirement communities and accompanying services for our schools... I love being a part of getting as much live music out into the world as possible!
I also connect one-on-one with our musicians to make their performances as seamless as possible. I have always been on the other side of the desk, as the musician / singer / actor who was auditioning and performing. I can now easily see things from the performer's point of view, and do my best of create a great experience for performer and client alike!"
