First Church has six major ensembles.
At the heart of the music ministry at First Church is our Adult Choir. The Adult Choir sings at the regular 10am worship services and special services and events throughout the program year. They lead us in the singing of hymns and specialize in the traditional/classical sacred choral music repertory. The Adult is open to all Gr. 9 and up and new members are welcome at any time! [ more ]
The Meetinghouse Chorale is an intergenerational community choir that specializes in performing large-scale sacred and secular choral music, sometimes accompanied by an orchestra. In November, the Chorale will commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation by presenting the works of Bach and Brahms and in April, they will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the composition of Randall Thompson's famous Frostiana by presenting the work in concert. It is open to all ages and abilities Grades 9 and up. [ more ]
The Meetinghouse Ringers is First Church's very own handbell choir and specializes in the exploration of a unique form of music performance. This group is open to all ages and abilities Grades 7 and up. [ more ]
The Pilgrim Chorale is a unique intergenerational ensemble that specializes in contemporary music experience. It serves as the contemporary alternative to the Adult Choir and as First Church's top youth music ensemble. This group is open to all ages and abilities Grades 7 and up. [ more ]
The Youth Choir is a multi-dimensional music ensemble for children grades 3-6. This group explores singing, playing instruments and sacred and secular music that holds meaning for them.
