Music at your Wedding
The Music Director at St. John’s will be pleased to provide the music for your unique wedding. We can adapt our extensive repertory of wedding music to fit every situation and every couple, as long as the music is appropriate to the wedding ceremony.
St. John’s boasts two extremely fine instruments in the sanctuary: its Aeolian-Skinner/Allen hybrid pipe organ, and Baldwin grand piano. You may choose one or both of these instruments for your ceremonial music, depending on the mood you wish to create.
Trumpet, violin, or flute are some frequent choices of instruments frequently heard playing with the organ or piano at weddings; vocal selections are also very popular. We have a quality network of musicians we can recommend for this purpose if you are interested.
Our Music Director will be pleased to meet with you prior to the ceremony to discuss your musical selection “wishlist” in detail.
About the Sanctuary & Reception Hall
The sanctuary of St. John’s is a beautiful, sacred space, dating from 1908. It has a wonderful acoustic, seats 300 people, and houses St. John’s prestigious pipe organ and Baldwin grand piano.
Our Parish Hall is used for receptions and events of all kinds. The Hall is a caterer’s delight, equipped with a full kitchen, refrigerators, microwave, and the like. The Hall itself is approximately 1,400 square feet. Adjacent to the hall is the Fireside Room, approximately 500 square feet, which may be used for the bride and attendants’ needs before the ceremony.
The Parish Hall has recently been renovated to improve lighting and sound systems, including PA and stereo speakers, DVD, CD, and auxiliary connections for playing music, and a projector for playing or streaming video or slideshows.
