Photos of Past Concert
Setup / Design
Notice in the
photo above the candleabras placed on the altar.
The altar table was draped with fabric and covered
with plastic wrap to protect it from wax drip. The
candleabras were placed on top of piles of hymnals
or sturdy boxes or small tables . Other candles are
on small tables to the side.
To the right
side of the above photo was a beautiful grand piano
on the lower level. With the permission of the
church, it was covered with a layer of hymnals,
cardboard on top of the hymnals, plastic wrap and
finally scarves on the very top with sturdy
votives. The area was open to the public, so
volunteers monitored to make sure noone approached

Please be sure to keep smoke away
Candelabras 6-8 feet high on either side behind me
are ideal. They can be on a 6 or 8 foot long table
if tall candelabras can't be found. It is best to
use tapers, (tall thin candlesticks) as they throw
the most light. Use only tapers. Pilar and thicker
candles don't throw enough light.
For Optional Small Tables, and general decor:
Pillar candles, which are thick, are quite stable,
and votives are safe, have pretty flames. Window
sills,, small tables, mix with scarves, plants, and
such to make the affect you desire..

to illuminate the plants (and my music) as the sun

Each sanctuary is unique. Bringing the best forward
of the acoustical, architectural, and energetic
