Weddings

Back to top

Chuck is one of the most experienced wedding trumpet players in the D.C. area having played for well over 1,000 ceremonies. Trumpet and organ is a wonderful combination for music of the church wedding. If the wedding is not in a church, or organ accompaniment is not the preference, Chuck has music and access to talented brass and string players for the couple’s desired ensemble.

Watch Chuck perform many of The Wedding Book selections
with acclaimed organist Diane Bish.
