Funerals and Memorial Services

"My heart, which is full of overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary."

 -Martin Luther

Planning a funeral service is a stressful time in anyone’s life. The number of decisions that must be made in a short amount of time can be overwhelming. Thankfully, there are professionals such as the funeral director and pastor who can be a source of comfort.

Music can be a great source of comfort as well. Songs performed by a vocalist and pianist/organist at the funeral service can convey how much your loved one will be missed, how beautifully their life was lived, or how important God was in their life. Often at times like this, the family is at a loss for words, but a great song can fill your hearts with comfort and peace. Music is a healer.

What happens when the family doesn’t want a church service, but still wants funeral music that’s beautiful, meaningful and memorable? Gerra Gembarosky is a singer, pianist and organist for funeral services which are held at funeral homes in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. She meets with the family in person (if time permits), by email or phone to plan an extraordinary funeral service that family and friends will remember for years to come! Whether it’s “His Eye Is On the Sparrow”, “Danny Boy”, “Wind Beneath My Wings”, “Dance With My Father”, “Gone Too Soon”, “Tears in Heaven”, “On Eagle’s Wings”, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand”, or “My Way”--any song that the deceased loved or is meaningful to the family, she will sing and play them at the funeral service. Her repertoire is extensive, and she sings in several foreign languages.

You may even think that CD’s are being played instead of “live” music! Close your eyes and you will hear harps, violins, pipe organ, bagpipes, and piano--mimicked so well that you may not know it’s a piano keyboard until you actually see her playing it!
