Are you also a guest for the wedding?  If so, wear whatever you’d wear as a guest.

If you are not  guest, I’d wear something nice, but not overly formal.  A skirt and a blouse would be fine, since you won’t really be the center of attention (at least, in my church, the musicians are always in the organ loft.)

You can definitely wear black, which is always a good choice for musicians; sleeves and a knee-length or longer skirt are totally appropriate; as PPs have mentioned, basically any dress you would wear to a wedding of another denomination should be fine for a Catholic wedding. Some Catholic churches have rules about covering shoulders, and a lot of cleavage is a no-no, but since you are LDS I don’t think there will be a problem. 😉

As PPs have mentioned, you very well might be up in an organ loft and not super visible to the assembly anyway. Do you know how old the church is where the wedding will be, and what general shape it is? Many older Catholic churches have a rectangular shape (they often have a bell tower and steeple at one end, etc.). If the church is shaped like this, it probably has a choir loft. Many newer Catholic churches have a more round shape, and those churches often have the music area on the ground floor, in a spot that’s more visible to the congregation, but you shouldn’t need to worry. You’ll be fine.
