Calvary’s Organist-Choirmaster Kristin Lensch takes part in planning the musical portion of all Calvary weddings. She has final approval of all musical selections and can provide you with suggestions. She plays for all weddings except under these circumstances:
Once the couple has planned the details of the wedding with the presiding priest, they are ready to meet with the organist-choirmaster, usually a minimum of 30-60 days before the wedding.
Vocal soloists and instrumentalists may be included in the wedding if desired. Typically the organist-choirmaster will arrange for such additional musicians, and all contracts for their services will be executed through the Music Office. The standard fee for guest musicians is $200 and above.
Guest singers or instrumentalists invited by the bride and groom to participate in the service are subject to the organist-choirmaster’s approval. In most cases, there will be an extra charge of $60 per hour for the organist-choirmaster to rehearse with guest musicians.
