Everyone is welcome to participate in the music program at First Presbyterian Church. Following are the various ways you can get involved:

Chancel Choir (September - May)

The Chancel Choir at First Presbyterian Church plays an integral part in leading worship during the 11:00 worship service. The choir consists of more than 20 dedicated singers who enjoy using their voice to praise God through music. Highlights of the choir year include singing with an orchestra at the 10:00 p.m. Christmas Eve service and the annual Pentecost Dixieland service. The choir sings a variety of repertoire throughout the season.  Rehearsals are Thursday nights from 7:00 to 9:00pm in the second floor music room.  Come and join us for fun, fellowship and singing. The only prerequisite is a love of music and a love of singing! Now is the time to make your commitment of time and talent by joining our dedicated and welcoming ensemble of singers.  The choir is conducted by Dr. Chelsea Vaught and accompanied by Kathryn Miller.

Summer Choir

The Chancel Choir takes a well-deserved break over the summer months, but does sing two or three times during the summer with an invitation for those curious about the choir to come join us.  Rehearsals are at 10:00am in the music room before singing at the 11:00am worship service.  2018 dates are June 3, June 10, August 19, and August 26.   

Special Music

During the year, members who play a musical instrument or sing solos are invited to share their musical gifts with the congregation.  Contact Dr. Chelsea Vaught if you would like to share your talent with the congregation.
