Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.Ephesians 5:19 (NIV)
The Bible has long celebrated the inseparable link between worship and music. Music is a language, and like something embedded in our DNA, songs have a special way of surfacing in times of stress, joy or sorrow. Whether you’re a singer, instrumentalist, or a friendly helper, there is a place for you to participate. We invite you to join us as we create beautiful music together.

Choirs and ensembles
Every Sunday, the dedicated members Chancel Choir lift their voices to lead the congregation in song. This talented group also performs several times throughout the year in seasonal concerts and holiday worship services. Special ensembles such as the Overtones Bell Choir and Gloria Women's Choir also rehearse regularly and lead in worship at various times throughout the year. Contact us to learn how to get involved.
The Sanctuary organ was a gift to First Presbyterian Church from two longtime members, Mr. and Mrs. Robert C. Sharp. It was built by Austin Organs of Hartford, Connecticut, and installed in 1967-1968. The organ includes 6,520 pipes, most of which are located in chambers on either side of the choir loft, and in the rear gallery of the Sanctuary. From 2013-2015, the organ underwent an intensive renovation. Every pipe was carefully removed for cleaning, and the old analogue control system was replaced with a new electronic control system. The main console is movable for concerts, and it was completely updated in the renovation project. A new mini-console was built to allow the entire organ to be controlled from the center of the choir loft.
