Dearest Gale,
Received the Music CDs the other day. Just listened to your rendition of Ami and Michael’s June 9, 2013 Wedding at Addison Park, Aberdeen, NJ .. Just beautiful…beautiful…. Memories flowing back from the wonderful Wedding Day. I had tears in my eyes from some violin selections. So glad we met and you are forever part of the Chodosh-Young Jewish wedding memory for life!

Thank you so much for being you throughout the entire wedding music selection process. You are an amazing lady! Lots of love and health.. A Happy and Healthy New Year to you and your family.

Hi Gale,
Stephen and I just want to thank you so much for playing so so beautifully at our wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect. I am just sorry that I didn’t get a second to thank you in person.

I had a question as well about song choice. When we were signing our ketubah, I could hear you playing “Somewhere Out There”. What was the reason for playing that? I started to cry because it was my song with my grandfather who passed about 10 years ago. It is so meaningful to me and I was so in shock that it was played. Thank you so much for making our day even more special.

– Michelle Cohen LONDON!,

Dear Gale & Curtis Music,
Wow! From the very moment my family saw you and heard you warming up, they had tears in their eyes. You created a mood that made people emotional and happy at the same time.

Everyone said they loved every song chosen and a lot of the songs were played so beautifully it made them cry. You brought an elegance to the day and truly helped make it feel like a magical fairy tale.

It was fun picking songs with you. You performed a concert for me that I’ll always remember!

– Dylan Lauren,

Omg!! Thank U!
You were amazing!!!

P.S. please thank Cina she really puts her heart and soul for you and your company

Dear Gale,
I just wanted to thank you for the extraordinary job you did of creating and presenting the ceremony music at Elana and Brett’s wedding on Sunday. The setting was dreamlike, and the music was sheer perfection. This is our third wedding in a year and a half, so we have more than our share of experience with this. We’ve had lots of wonderful phone calls, emails and texts, complimenting us on the flowers, food and decor, but this time so many of our guests commented on the incredibly beautiful music that was played throughout the ceremony. It was something really special, and I just want you to know how much we appreciate it.
We have one more daughter (although only 17!) so there’s still a chance we can work together one day, and I’m looking forward to it.

Thank you again,

– Audrey Wilf,

Dear Gale,
We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for making our wedding ceremony so amazing. The music was absolutely incredible and it sounded better than we could have ever imagined. Everyone kept raving about what an amazing job the orchestra did and how beautiful all of the music was (and some of Brett’s friend were very jealous that he got to walk up to the One Shining Moment intro!). It really was just beautiful and made our ceremony so special and unique. Thank you and all of your orchestra so much for working so hard to write the music and perform all of our (sometimes random) music requests and for making our ceremony so wonderful.

We had the most incredible night and were so happy that you were a part of it. We hope to work with you in the future!

Thanks again!!

All our best,

– Elana & Brett (or, Mr. and Mrs. Tanzman 🙂 ).,

You cannot imagine what it meant to my family to celebrate this beautiful moment and the beauty of your music so enhanced my emotion, that there are moments that will etched in my mind forever. I hope to have your music to enhance many more moments in my family’s life.
Thank you again for the magic you create with your music!


– Sally Tycher,

Thanks so much!!!! Music was perfect! Everyone loved it. It really enhanced our ceremony. It was a lot of fun working with you. Your positivity and excitement made us feel so special.

– Victoria Dana,

Hi Gale,

Hi Gale,
I wanted to say thank you so much again for the beautiful music on Saturday night. The ceremony was unbelievably special, and the music was the biggest part. I can’t wait to hear the recording ?

All the best,

– Jamie Fuld,

Hi Gale!
How are you?
We worked together last year for mine and Abie’s wedding on November 16th. I just wanted to let you know that Abie and I watched our wedding video the other night, and we finally got to hear the beautiful music that you put together for the ceremony. You really did a fantastic job!! ? The scores from The Rock, The Holiday, The Notebook, etc. Everything was beautiful. Just wanted to thank you again for everything.

Hope to see you at more weddings!


– Laura Shweky,

Hi Gale,
Just a quick note to thank you for your amazing performance on November 10th for our family’s celebration/ wedding reception at the Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Your sets were fabulous – you are a special talent! I truly wish to walk through your music again one day!

More thanks, best

– Victoria Goldman,

I’ve gotten so many compliments on the procession music. I am so happy I spent the time carefully selecting all those songs…thanks so much for working with me. Am so glad too that I did not go with the traditional music and chose the songs that I did. I found these songs to be so much more “fun” and they made the ceremony more memorable.

– Bella Zelingher,

Thanks Gail, we loved everything you did for our family. Looking forward to the next party.

Thanks again,

– Joe Jerome,

Thank YOU!
I could not have asked for a better night and want to thank you personally for the time you put into the program. It was amazing and everybody loved it! You are truly talented and hope to keep in touch with you, it was truly a pleasure. Thanks for your kind words, it was a night I will never forget.

All the best.

Dear Gale,

Hi Gale,
It’s Marvin, it was a pleasure to have you make the entire wedding start off with such elegant & class. I’m glad that you made it happen for us. Seeing how emotional it was, you were right there for me. Anyway thanks again and I can’t see anyone not having Curtis Music perform their ceremony. Hats off to you Gale. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner.

– Marvin,

Thank you so much for a truly magical ceremony. It was just so special. Everyone noticed how wonderful the music was and told us it added such a unique dynamic to the ceremony. Thank you for everything – we will be referring you to our engaged friends any chance we get :).

– Jaclyn,

Words cannot express my gratitude for what was the most magical evening of my life. You and your musicians made this wedding epic! Our guests could not stop talking about the music. They were completely mesmerized. I have received calls throughout the day and to a person the pre-ceremony and pre-processional was the highlight of their evening. Thank you so very much! And you will certainly see me again.

– Rose Fass,

You guys were absolutely fantastic, I can’t tell you how many of our married friends approached us to say how jealous they were of our ceremony music. There really could be no better soundtrack to our wedding day. Thank you for everything!

– Jonathan Edelstein & Jaclyn Cohen,

Hi Gale!

If possible, would you be able to mail us a copy or our ceremony music on CD?

Thank you again!!

Hello Gale,
Thank you for sending wonderful musicians to play at my daughter’s wedding.
That you were able to explain your musical ideas for us by playing them in advance over the telephone was amazing!!! The result was perfect.

All the best,

Wow! The ceremony for the Boxer & Ackerman wedding was just beautiful! Thank you for all the hard work you and the musicians put in to making their ceremony magical and personal. We love working with you and thank you for the Valentine’s treats – lots of love!

– Maya & Ali, Alimay Events

You were absolutely amazing at our wedding!! The music of the day was so important to me and you truly delivered! Do you know how many people have complimented me on how beautiful the music was at both the church and cocktail hour?! As the Bride, I had to miss quite a bit of it and I can not wait to see my video and take it all in! From start to finish you made me so excited to be part of your vision. You were immensely helpful with the not so accommodating church and you created and crafted the most beautiful sounds for my Bridal Party and day. I am forever thankful and feel so blessed I had such an amazing & Talented woman to work with. Thank you for helping in making my dreams come true!

– Love Becky & Jay,

I am so sorry for not writing sooner but it has been such a roller-coaster since Opening Night.

Thank you so very much for a fantastic Carnegie Hall Gala last Wednesday. You made a dinner dance happen in less than 3 hours, and on top of that found a drummer to work the event as well! We seriously owe you big time and we can’t thank you enough for your flexibility and loyalty to Carnegie Hall. It was a tremendous success, and I know Mrs. Bass was thrilled that we all managed to pull off this new event structure in no time at all.

I hope you had a fantastic weekend, and I look forward to many more events together in the future.

– All my best, Ginger, Carnegie Hall
