A musical wedding planned for Sunday
First will come the concert and then the bride will change into her wedding dress. Florida Intergenerational Orchestra of America founder and conductor Lorraine Marks is set to marry Bob Field, the group’s manager and pianist, at The Volen Center on Sunday, April 29. Her three and his four grown children are expected to hold up the Chuppah, the ceremonial canopy, when the pair exchange vows before Rabbi Ralph Cohen, 92, the drummer. The 50-something bride’s sisters Rita Davidson and Debbie Weinstock are maids of honor, and Field, 64, will have his brother Michael Field stand up for him as best man. Pet therapy dog Skippy Behar is the ring bearer. Afterward the couple, who met through a dating service, will hand out special CDs of “The Wedding Concert,” with seven songs Field wrote for his bride, and their song, “The Way You Look Tonight.” “When I heard him play the piano, my heart just melted,” she said.
The concert begins at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Volen Center, 1515 W. Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton. Call 561-482-8206 or go to flioa.org. Cost is $20.
