FPCA as always put special emphasis on music as a significant part of corporate
worship. Music's power to speak to and for the worshipper is an honored reality
within the life of this congregation.
Our Chancel Choir, made up entirely of volunteers, participates in all our Sunday
services except during the summer months. While small in number, the choir
provides confidence to the congregation to respond with hymns and musical
responses to the various movements of our worship services.
The Hand Bell Choir regularly enriches the musical component of our worship. It,
too, is totally volunteer. Both choirs are always delighted when new people
volunteer to participate.
Special Programs of Music
At least twice a year, usually around Easter and Christmas, the choirs prepare
special programs that enrich the seasons for FPCA members and friends and
neighbors. These are occasions when additional voices and/or instruments join our
choir (Be sure to see the picture of the Lewis and Hitchcock tracker organ below).
Throughout the year, musical groups from the community (including Annandale
High School choruses) perform in our sanctuary, which speaks well of our
sanctuary acoustics, and of our organ and concert grand piano.
