​​​​​​​Music at 

First Church

The Music Ensembles of First Church works to invite, love, and bless all, building community through engagement in worship and concerts that celebrate the diversity of God's people and their music.  All are welcome to participate in our Chancel & Festival Choirs , our Bell Choir, and our Children's Choir. Our Music in the Meetinghouse concert series uses our historic sanctuary, 2010 Klais pipe organ, and Steinway piano to bring a variety of meaningful music to our community, and to provide a space for outside groups to do the same.
