Musical Selections

Music is said to heal an aching heart. It also is an opportunity to set the tone for a visitation, funeral or church service. Zarzycki Manor Chapels, Ltd. will work with you to help select music for all aspects of the funeral, including music selections at church. Although many churches are accommodating to families’ music selections, there are some churches that have musical guidelines that we must follow. Coordinating with church musicians, as well as in-house musicians and music professionals within our community, we have several ways to enhance the funeral service with live music. We can also play pre-recorded music, which includes a large selection from our musical library, both on CD and MP3s. If you have a specific playlist, or would like to bring in your IPOD, we can connect it to our sound system.
