Chancel Choir

chancel

Providence Presbyterian Church offers a varied and inspiring music ministry incorporating many styles and gifts of Christian music and featuring musically inspired Providence members. We incorporate many styles—Classical, American Gospel and Jazz—into our Traditional Worship services. Our purpose of music offering is to glorify God, and to bless our congregation through prepared and skillful music.

The Chancel Choir is a faithful and welcoming family of believers at Providence. It provides music throughout the church year. Singers are encouraged to sing at the Traditional Service each Sunday. We rehearse on Wednesdays 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the Mills Building fine arts room, and on Sundays an hour before the worship service. Visitors are always welcome, even while on vacation.

Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. Psalm 95:1-2

Bell Choir

We have a beautiful three-octave set of brass bells for ringing praise music during service! This bell choir performs for traditional services and we rehearse Thursdays 4:00 -5:30 pm. If you’ve ever wanted to try bells, please come! You don’t need to sing on pitch to be part of a friendly musical group that makes a joyful sound for the Lord!

Children's Choir

Children’s Choir, age 4 and up, meets 5:30-6 pm on Wednesdays.  The purpose of the choir is to learn about Jesus in songs written based on the Bible, and to praise God with joyful hearts as one group.  Dr. JooSoo Son, traditional worship director and organist, leads this choir.

Soloists and Special Music

 Providence is blessed with a variety of soloists, instrumental players, and small ensembles. We welcome guest soloists and instrumentalists who would like to play for worship or recital in the excellent acoustics of our sanctuary. If you have an instrument gathering dust in the closet that you know you really should be playing to the glory of God, pull that instrument out and set a performance date with us!

Providence Presents

Music concerts are presented at least monthly featuring solo artists such as pianist Jim Henrdicks, prize-winning violinist Eric Tsai, choirs including the Cumberland Youth Touring Choir, and our own Dr. JooSoo Son.  Typical times are Friday at 5:30 pm so that people can come and hear beautiful music and then go to dinner with friends.  These events are always free with free-will offerings accepted to support further Providence Presents programs.

Our music ministry team invites Christian musicians for concerts and recitals in our beautiful sanctuary. If you know of a musician or musical group that would like to perform in our flexible setting with excellent acoustics, please contact our Music Director, Dr. JooSoo Son.
