Music plays an important role in Catholic Liturgy, and this is especially true for the wedding ceremony. For this reason, The Immaculata offers first-rate liturgical music services year-round. The following should be kept in mind when planning the music for your wedding ceremony:
It is recommended that you arrange the music for your wedding with The Immaculata's staff musicians. The Immaculata employs several very fine musicians who are experienced in their role as liturgical musicians, and familiar with the logistical details of wedding ceremonies at the Immaculata.
- The contact person for wedding music at the Immaculata is our Organist, Leslie Gereghty. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Leslie also provides music for the 4:30 p.m. (Saturday) and 9:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. (Sunday) Masses each weekend, so you are welcome to speak with her in person after Mass. It is recommended that you to contact Leslie about 4-6 months prior to your wedding date.
- Please note that the cost of music is not included in the fee paid to The Immaculata for use of the church. The Immaculata's musicians are trained professionals and are available at reasonable and competitive rates. Musican rates begin at about $250 and can vary depending on your instrumentation preferences.
- If you wish to hire musicians from another parish, they will be required to provide a letter from their parish as verification that they are actively engaged as liturgical musicians. Additionally, guest musicians are required to provide their own equipment, including a sound system (if needed), microphones and microphone stands, etc. The Immaculata's organ is reserved only for use by The Immaculata's organist.
- The Immaculata will soon have a youtube/vimeo channel where you can view wedding song selections and styles to help customize your wedding music. Any vocal music sung during your wedding ceremony must have a Christian text.
