Please contact our office if you would like an organist/pianist to perform at your wedding. If you would like to have the organ played, you must use our organist at St. John's. If the organist is not available, other approved organists will be provided.

Other types of musicians may be used. We welcome the use of guitar, harp, flute or a small chamber ensemble. Please see our list of vendors for recommendations.

St. John’s has many gifted musicians. It is your responsibility to make all arrangements with the musician(s) directly. If you wish to play music that is not in the church library, it will be necessary for you to provide the sheet music at least two weeks prior to the wedding.

Please contact the office for an approved list of organists.
