• Weddings not using the organ or piano must have their music approved by staff 90 days before the service.
• String & wind instruments are welcome, but recorded music & electronic keyboards are prohibited.
• Only music that is of a sacred, religious, or classical nature may be played in the chapel. The mention of God or Jesus does not necessarily make a song religious.
• For weddings using the organ or piano, only TCU Chapel musicians may be used- no exceptions. The fee for a TCU musician is $300 & must be paid no later than 90 days prior to the wedding date.
• Services of an organist/pianist include: a music consultation, overall coordination of music, presence during the rehearsal & ceremony, opening pieces on the tower bells, a 30 minute pre-ceremony concert, processional music, accompaniment as needed, recessional music, the playing of the tower bells as guests are leaving, both organ & piano music, if desired.
• Once the musician fee has been paid, you will be notified of who your musician is & given their contact information. You may then get in touch with your musician & set up a music consultation. At least 1 month before your wedding, the TCU chapel musician must have all of the information for your wedding- sheet music in a format that can be read for organ/piano & the requested key, names & contact information for vocalists or additional musicians.
