Weddings and Specialty Concerts

The Cornell Chimesmasters are available to play for your wedding or special event. We offer 15- and 30-minute options. Half-hour concerts may be played in one block or in two 15-minute increments before and after your event.

Wedding concerts may be scheduled before or after the ceremony. Beginning and ending times for concerts before the ceremony can be pre-set. For concerts after the ceremony, a wedding party member must call the chimesmaster to begin the concert.

Due to the volume of events on campus, the chimesmasters cannot accept wedding concert requests for weddings outside of Sage Chapel. Concerts are also subject to the availability of chimesmasters on campus. We currently schedule no more than three wedding concerts per weekend.

Fees

15-minute concerts $90.00
30-minute concerts $150.00
30-minute concerts broken into two 15-minute increments (such as before and after the ceremony) $175.00
All concert fees must be paid in advance. Please make checks payable to Cornell University.

Music

For wedding concerts, you may select specific music or ask that the chimesmaster choose the concert selections for you. A list of options is available to download (via Adobe Acrobat).

For specialty concerts, including memorial services, please consult with the head chimesmaster for suggestions of appropriate music from our library.

Contacting Us

To request a concert, contact the chimesmasters at (607) 255-5350, or email chimes@cornell.edu. Please do not contact us more than six months prior to your event; we will not accept reservations that far in advance.

Once you've checked the availability of the date for your concert with the chimesmasters, you can download the Specialty Concert Information Sheet, fill it out and return it to us with your payment.
