Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Max + Faith LOVE Day!
Held on 2012, March, 4th, at 5pm - a memorable & blessed day..
It was my club advisor/ friend, Faith Yeo's big day.
Yeap, we've saved the day!

 It was such an honour & great pleasure to be invited to play for her.
Also, it was a blessing for her.
It was not only my 1st outdoor wedding performance (my 1st christian wedding), in fact it was 1st ever garden wedding ever held at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus Square!

 as featured at Taylor's Memes on Facebook

As for the performances, we actually performed twice: during the reception & wedding dinner.
Here's the repertoire that we've played:
1. Canon in D (String Ensemble)
2. Por Una Cabeza (String Ensemble)

Bravo & thank you so much to all the performers who came all the way long from other place, took leave from work and even sacrificed the time to do revision though in exam period to come for the rehearsal and made this performance a success!
Alas, one fall sick on that very day but still manage to perform his best during the event.
You guys are really amazing!
Big thanks to Nigel A for the inspiration and big help for this performance!
Not to be forgotten, thank you Roy, Lionel & Justin for helping us to get and return the music room's key, making our practices possible during public holiday & weekend!
Last but not least, thanks to my boss, Nigel G who allowed me to do the arrangements for the songs during the working hour!
Appreciate all of your help, understanding & consideration :)
Ah ha, thank you Chris C, the Performance Coordinator of the event for keeping us in the loop throughout the preparation stage & the event day!
I was too busy with soundcheck and coordinate my members till forgot to get myself dressed up until he reminded me. lol

Of course, we were not the only performers of the day..
Flashmob performed by Taylor's University Dance Club was really eye-catching!
Feel like dancing with them when the music starts...
Another highlight of the day was the duet by Jess & her partner...
Like the way they interpret the song~

1 of the performances
umm.. Relent Band..?

I find that christian wedding is more of sharing...
There are sessions whereby the guests share their memories, thoughts & feelings on the stage which I did not really be all ears all the time.
They all really spontaneous and good in public speaking I must say.
I'd be wordless if I were to be asked to speak on stage. lol

practising while waiting for soundcheck..

soundcheck in progress under the hot sun!


 the grilled lamb was fantastic but I did not get to take any photo of it @.@

p/s: just realised there were quite a lot of ex-MBS who helped out in this performance: KShen, Joel W, SHong & Nigel A... Go forward! Play up, play up, play up! hahaha...

Anyway, it's a whole new experience for me and thank you Faith & Max for the invitation!
Have a blessed & lovely marriage life
