Requiem for You is a unique business concept that will give
your loved one a holiday gift they will never forget. To immortalize or
celebrate that special person in your life, you can have a customized musical
composition developed with their inspiration.
For those who have a strong grasp on the classical music
world, you can select two options; the composition of a Requiem, which is
typically used as an honorarium for the dearly departed, or a Laudation; a
biographically based musical depiction of a story. Of course, if your gift
recipient has not already crossed through those pearly gates, the later would
be a more cherished selection, or it may be seen as a threat…just a thought.
The company does not require that you have any musical
knowledge of your own; they will work with freelance composers and artists,
orchestras and recording studios to make the musical memories happen; the
process constantly overseen by their artistic panel of directors. They are also open to completing shorter, less
epic pieces and will include lyrics or vocals if requested.
If it’s not enough to have their enchanting musical
composition recording wrapped and tucked away under the tree this year, Requiem
for You will arrange a performance. Depending upon your preferences (and
presumably, budget), they can setup an audio listening, intimate instrumental
performance, or concert with complete orchestra. Santa definitely can’t fit
that in his sled.
Fees are not surprisingly, unlisted; you have to contact
them and discuss your ideas. However, I think it goes without saying that such
an endeavor comes at a big cost. So, if you’re considering this for a holiday
gift, you’d better choose someone very special.
This business concept feels to me like one born when an
entrepreneur wanted to profit upon their musical dreams. And why not? Some of
the best ideas occur this way. So, what’s yours?
