Hello, my name is Eric Zimmermann. I am a DJ / Master of Ceremonies, Pianist and Band Leader. My wife Flutist Sheila Zimmermann and I started Elegant Music by playing Flute and Piano music together. Then we added Strings and created the Elegant Music Quartet. We have a lot of fun performing with our quartet. This event was a birthday party in a back yard in Pasadena on a lake. That’s right, on a lake in Pasadena! We set up in a gazebo that was the perfect size for us. This party had everything: Beautiful location, nice people, great food provided by The Kitchen for Exploring Foods” and yes the Elegant Music Quartet. Everyone had a really good time and we received some very nice compliments.

Often I get requests for popular music to be played for weddings and special events. Sheet music of popular songs already written for quartet are not usually available for purchase and so these have to be written. As a result the Elegant Music Quartet performs a unique variety of traditional and contemporary music. This video features some new arrangements of contemporary pop songs I have written for this quartet.
- “I Feel So Close” Calvin Harris”
- “Once Upon A Dream” Disney
- “Take The “A” Train” Duke Ellington
- “Somewhere Out There” James Horner
- “Browneyed Girl” Van Morrison
“Crossover” Mixing Styles of Music
Traditional chamber music by Bach, Handel, Vivaldi is absolutely beautiful but it is totally OK to think outside the box when you are planning your special event. I think a mix of traditional and covers of popular contemporary music is perfect for a cocktail hour, dinner party or formal reception. Listeners are aesthetically challenged when they recognize a familiar song being played by an ensemble that wouldn’t normally play that style of music. Here are more new songs that I have arranged recently but haven’t had a chance to film my quartet playing them:
- “Come What May” from Moulin Rouge
- “Don’t You Worry Child” Swedish House Mafia
- “Starlight” The Muse
- “I Won’t Give Up” Jason Mraz
- Theme from “Downton Abbey”
