If you have access to a mac, iPhoto makes it really easy to export a 
set of photos to a slideshow along with music, that you can save to a 
.mov file.  Select the photos into an album, put them in the order you 
want, select the song you want from iTunes and and the display time for 
each slide.  You can even do some math to figure out how long to show 
each slide for so it exactly matches the length of your song.  If you 
can't find out the resolution of the projector you'll be using, I would 
suggest making one at 800x600 and one at 1024x768.

Less control over presentation than Flash, but it possibly a lot faster 
to produce.
