Our robust music program features seven different children’s, youth, and adult choirs and bands rehearsing every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon and evening. And here’s the thing about participating in our ensembles: you may feel that your musical ability is nowhere near where you would ever be able to sing or play a solo in front of our congregation. That doesn’t matter.
What does matter is a love of music and a willingness to create together a sound so much richer and more beautiful and diverse than any one soloist could ever muster. As a member of our chancel choir, you can sing Handel with a 20-piece chamber orchestra during our Christmas Concert; with our sanctuary ringers or teen bells, you can ring five octaves of handbells to “Simple Gifts;” with our Folk Lore group you can play the music of Alison Krauss and Bob Dylan; or with our Manna Band songs by Gungor and Sara Groves.
And through music, our children have the opportunity to explore their creativity too. Associate Director of Music Janice Williams leads our Psalm Singers and Joy Ringers (chimes and bells) with fun, challenging, and educational rehearsals on Wednesday afternoons and Sunday mornings. Both groups sing and ring in worship throughout the year, often times in collaboration with our high school or adult musicians. Music helps our children gain confidence as well as participate and feel a sense of belonging to our church.
Making music together is one of the most rewarding, engaging, relaxing and fulfilling experiences you can have. It costs nothing, except an hour or so of your time a week. There are no auditions and no solos (unless you really want one!!) What are you waiting for?
In addition to groups for our congregation, PCCT is home to Lyrica Chamber Music and Sanctuary Concerts a non-profit organization that brings regionally and nationally known singers to our area for an affordable night out.
