We are a group of heralding trumpet players, providing a large repertoire of music for weddings and other special events.
If you have dreamed of participating in a Royal themed wedding - you're in luck! Heralding trumpeters will bring a sense of elegance and royal drama to your wedding and reception. You will feel like a Prince and a Princess as you are heralded at your entrance to the ceremony, and then once more as you enter the reception.
Later, your Royal court trumpeters will honor each couple in the wedding party with their own brilliant fanfare as they are introduced to your guests and take their places at the head table, and the final, most brilliant fanfare will be sounded for the Prince and Princess themselves! Let the Wedding Feast begin!
Does this scenario sound too good to be true? Too much to fit into your own wedding plans? Your special day doesn't have to be at Buckingham Palace, or at Grace Cathedral for you to enjoy the special pomp and ceremony created by Gabriel's Trio of Heraldic Trumpets. We will provide the complete elegant atmosphere of a Royal Wedding for you and your guests, without 'trumpeting' a huge hole in your budget.
We started out by playing carols and flourishes at Christmas Feasts hosted each year by the San Francisco Boys Chorus at the Hotel Mark Hopkins. The perfectly timed trumpet flourishes helped the Lord Mayor announce the dinner seating. The Trio also played fanfare introductions to tunes that the Boys Chorus sang.
In their early days, they wore tuxedos for events and soon switched it up to up to full Renaissance Court regalia, (donated kindly by the San Francisco State University Costume Shop).
Christmas shoppers responded so well on the streets of San Francisco's Nob Hill, that they actually encouraged the trio to "go commercial", and the rest, as they say, is musical history! The trio performs in groups sometimes as large as four, six, eight, or twelve herald trumpeters.
Gabriel's Trio has been featured at: Gumps's, the San Francisco Opera and Ballet, Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco International Film Festival, and many, many more.
We have developed a huge repertoire of music to be performed with or without accompaniment. The Trio enjoy organ, piano, harp or guitar accompaniment, and are more than versatile enough to match your creative structure, or fit your wedding budget! Our bright banners on the trumpets can also be customized just for your occasion!
