Music at First Presbyterian

First Presbyterian Church of Harbor Springs has always valued the importance of music in worship.

Screen Shot 2016 06 08 at 10.51.09 AMOur Chancel Choir sings throughout the program year during our 10:00 a.m. worship service. Members sing a variety of music from gospel to “classical.” The choir frequently presents major choral works during the Advent and Lenten seasons (Dubois' The Seven Last Words of Christ, selections from Handel's Messiah, John Ferguson's The Passion of St. John). Everyone is welcome to sing. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 -8:30 p.m. Our Summer Choir meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. to rehearse a choral anthem and several responses. The group sings at the 10:00 a.m. service and after the anthem, members can sit with family and friends in the congregation. Attire is summer casual.

Screen Shot 2016 06 08 at 10.55.07 AM The Kirk Ringers, our hand bell ensemble, plays intermittently throughout the year during worship services. Rehearsals at on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:45 p.m. The Kirk Ringers have performed at local community events and as part of the Bay View Music Festival. Music reading is necessary, and previous bell ringing experience is welcome.

for children through Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and our Kids Club offer opportunities to explore music and bring enrichment to our worship services.

Located in a Community blessed by a unique cultural heritage, FPCHS is thrilled to host many gifted artists and groups. When the current church building was finished in 1994, the sanctuary was noted for its excellent acoustic qualities, and has since become a regular venue for such organizations as the Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra and the Little Traverse Choral Society. We also frequently host many special musical concerts and events featuring performers and ensembles from the Bay View Music Festival, Central Michigan University and Alma College.
