Piano Usage: Although there is a piano on the 2nd Floor of the Parish House, King’s Chapel does not guarantee or certify that the piano is in working order, in tune, or performance ready. Should you require the use of a piano, it is at your discretion to arrange a meeting to review the condition of the piano before your event. If you wish, you can have the piano tuned, at your own personal cost and can make arrangements with the Parish Administrator to allow access during the Parish House’s operational hours. King’s Chapel is not required to maintain the piano in working order.
Renters must be prepared to provide their own sound equipment, video cameras, VCRs, projectors or other equipment or make arrangements with the Parish Administrator to use the equipment belonging to King’s Chapel.

Should there be damage noted by a King’s Chapel Staff Member to any of the equipment, your organization will be responsible for replacing the item or the cost of its replacement value. Notify the Parish Administrator should your organization require the use of King’s Chapel’s Electronic Equipment during your space rentals.
