The Wedding March

It’s Thursday!  Time to share what you are learning about your composers.

I had absolutely NO idea that Mendelssohn wrote this piece…..

We have wedding on the brain around here.  My sister is getting married in March and we have been trying on dresses, working out colors of shoes, consulting in little decorating ideas….

Now when she walks down the isle.  We will be able to say we know who wrote that song!

Let me know what you think of the new linky….

  1. How timely that you learned about the composer of the famous wedding march! We studied Mendelssohn this week as well – and the wedding march was the piece that the kids recognized immediately.

  2. Did Mendelssohn compose this piece? I was confused by the “Richard Wagner” under the title. What’s that about. I’ll be trying to research this this week to understand for sure if it was composed by Mendelssohn. (Maybe a “YouTube” contributor put the wrong name under the piece’s title…)

    • Yes it is confusing… Wagner composed what we commonly call “Here Comes the Bride” (real name: the Bridal Chorus ) And Mendelssohn composed the Wedding March in 1842 as an incidental piece to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

      Thanks for the question! It made me go and do a bit more research, which is always a good thing :)
