The music of the wedding service, like the music of all worship experiences, is never an end in itself. Rather, it is a means to glorify God and celebrate humankind. Music of a classical or religious nature is appropriate for the celebration of a wedding service in the Sanctuary or Chapel. Popular tunes or music from shows would be acceptable for rehearsal dinners or receptions, but are not in good taste for the religious ceremony. All music selections, whether vocal or instrumental, must be approved in consultation with our organist.
If requested, our music staff vocal soloists are available. A guest soloist is welcome, but is expected to know the music in advance of the rehearsal with the organist. In order to avoid any misunderstandings, it is wise to confer with the organist before selecting a solo or soloist.
Permission to incorporate into the music the use of instruments other than the church organ may be granted with the approval of the organist and wedding coordinator. No taped music will be allowed in the wedding ceremony.
