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.
