*Some music groups are currently on summer break; please contact directors for current schedule.
First Presbyterian Church offers various adult vocal and instrumental choirs to experience the spiritual blessing of singing. Childcare is available for both rehearsals. Rehearsals are engaging, energizing, uplifting, and encouraging as we nurture one another and experience the gift of music together. Well planned and well-paced rehearsals, the availability of one on one help, and the powerful support of multiple voices and sounds combined makes being in a choir or ensemble an experience accessible for adults of all skill levels, whether able to read music or not.
Rehearsals: Wednesdays through July 12, 7-8 p.m.
During the 11 a.m. worship services from June 18-July 16 the FPC Summer Choir will offer a variety of accessible and exciting anthems for worship. All high school students through adults who love singing in choirs – or have always wanted to sing with a choir! – are welcome to join members of the Chancel Choir, Fellowship Choir, and other singers for this 5 week singing opportunity filled with fellowship, joy, and music! You are welcome any Wednesday/Sunday you are in town! Feel free to talk with the Rev. Dr. Michael Waschevski if you have questions about Summer choir.
