Odd requests for wedding Music

As an arranger specialising in string quartet music I often get asked by quartets to arrange a special piece for a bride and groom. It's always fascinating to me to see what pieces people want, sometimes I have to say they are most peculiar! Of course if it is what the couple want then I will arrange it (so far there's not been anything I've not been able to do) and I hope that it makes their day extra special.Have you had any odd requests for pieces? See More

Question about converting an electric violin to viola.....

A music store recently told me that if I wanted to have an electric viola,that I could buy a 4/4 electric violin and put viola strings on it and it would be equivalent to a 14" viola. Now- has anyone done this and if so,did the set up need to be changed? If this would work I could shop for a used electric violin and then do the conversion. See More
