Memorial Services

Words and Sounds provides live music for funerals and memorial services throughout southern Ontario, including Toronto, Hamilton and all points from Niagara Falls through to Oshawa and up to Guelph.

As a solo artist and with others, guitarist, singer and keyboardist Tony Gosgnach has provided music for numerous funerals and memorial services over the past 30-plus years. Many families have entrusted the music for their rite of passage to either him alone or to him and his associated musicians and singers.

His experience working with so many families over the years makes him well-versed to provide you with just what would be most appropriate for the remembrance of your loved one. Tony will work with you first to determine what type of arrangement would work best for your service — solo guitar and voice? Or perhaps you would like to add a supplementary instrument, such as flute or violin? Maybe another voice or two?

Then, he will go over his vast repertoire to determine what songs you would like for the various moments in the service. Tony can provide you with a demonstration CD so you can listen to samples of songs that have worked well for other families over the years. Of course, you are free to select your own songs, subject to the approval of the presiding minister and the musical demands of the piece.

Tony will also liaise with the presiding minister, if need be, as well as contract and rehearse supporting musicians and singers if they are commissioned. He will then take care of everything required the day of the service, including providing any needed equipment and setting up and calibrating the sound system.
