Music

Sanctuary choir

The First Presbyterian Church Sanctuary Choir sings in services from September through May. The 30-voice choir consists of many professional musicians as well as MWSU students and other fine singers. The members are dedicated people who have an extraordinary love for singing quality sacred music as well as enjoying fellowship with each other. Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the Educational Building. Those who enjoy singing are invited to sing with the choir. There are no auditions, but choir members must be able to sing on pitch. Jerry L. Anderson directs the choir.

Vocal soloists and instrumentalists

First Presbyterian Church is fortunate to have many fine vocalists and instrumentalists as members who provide solo and ensemble music for worship services. A brass quintet with tympani assist during many festival services.

Handbell Choirs

The hand bell choir rings on a complete 5 octave set of Schulmerich hand bells. Our adult choir has 13 members and interest in playing in the choir is growing. The adult choir rehearses once a week on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 p.m. In addition to the bells, we have added a complete 5 octave set of hand chimes. Each set (hand chimes and hand bells) can be used alone but together they create an amazing blend of music. Judy Long directs the hand bell choir.
