Wedding Music Guidelines                           

Please Note: Our Wedding Music Fairs are the best way to learn about and hear music for your wedding. 

They are the FIRST MONDAY in February, June, and October.  Prelude starts at 6:45pm, the program starts at 7:00pm

STEP 1:  Review Music Guidelines

  • We have included wedding music guidelines to help direct your selection process and answer questions about appropriate music choices. Please review these before planning your music.
  • Please also note the Cancellation Policy for our wedding musicians (effective 5/1/17)

STEP 2: Review and Select Wedding Music Repertoire
  • The repertoire of wedding music at Old St. Patrick's is extensive and varied. Please review our wedding music repertoire page, which is broken down by the major sections of your wedding liturgy or ceremony.  Most of this repertoire can be heard at the Wedding Music Fairs, as noted below.

    **STRONGLY RECOMMENDED -  try to attend one of our 3-times-a-year Wedding Music Fairs. These are held on the first Monday of February, June, and October, from 7:00-8:45pm in the church. These Fairs provide the opportunity for couples to hear the many talented and skilled cantors who sing for weddings, as well as a string quartet, trumpet, and other instruments, and they present excerpts of the best and most effective repertoire selections we have found for wedding celebrations.  A VIDEO OF OUR RECENT WEDDING FAIR IS AVAILABLE HERE

STEP 3:  Select Cantor Preferences
  • Visit our Wedding Cantors page for more information on our talented wedding cantors.  Selection of your preferred wedding cantor(s) along with the information above is required for submitting your request to the Music Office.

STEP 4: Submit Request Form (for cantor / instrumentalists AND music line up)

  • When you've made all of your final music choices from the wedding music fair or this site, please complete the  OSP Wedding Music and Musicians Request Form.  This is for your cantor(s) AND instrumentalists AND music selections -- all in one form!
  • Once all this information is received, we will begin the process of booking your musicians for you, and a confirmation of all selections, musicians hired, and further instructions will be emailed back to you within a few weeks. All musicians will be officially hired and confirmed through the music office of Old St. Patrick’s.
  • Please do not hesitate to contact us at with any questions you may have; remember that we are here to help make this as easy a process as possible for you.  Please include the time and date of your wedding, as well as both your last names, in the subject line of all correspondence with the Music Office.

What To Expect Next...
About 8 weeks prior to the date of your wedding, a final confirmation will be sent containing your list of musical selections and the names and fee amounts for your musicians. In order to secure each musician for your wedding, we require payment three weeks in advance of your wedding date, with checks made out to each individual musician. Names will be provided. These instructions will also be clear when we send your confirmed music list.
