At PPC, musicians and singers have opportunities every week to share their talents.
Below is a list of the groups that play and sing during worship on Sundays.
The Sanctuary Choir:
The Sanctuary Choir, the backbone of the church music program, leads the 10:00 a.m. Service during the school year. This group of vocalists raise their voice in song every Sunday of the church year in a variety in genres of repertoire. The group is often accompanied not only by piano/organ, but by visiting artists and our own brass ensemble. The choir has presented cantatas and larger works by a long list of famous composers and was recently featured with the Immaculata Symphony.
The Paoli Ringers:
The Paoli Ringers, a bell choir, ring at Christmas and Easter each year. This group is always looking for new membership but interested people should have basic knowledge of music reading and rhythm. The Ringers enhance the Sanctuary Choir and Brass Ensemble occasionally and also make appearances at the Christmas Eve services. If you are interested in joining, email Jon Kreamer (see below).
The Paoli Brass Ensemble:
Long ago, the walls of Jericho came tumbling down when the horns blew. Now, once a month during the school year at the 10:00 a.m. service, our Paoli Brass Ensemble shakes the walls of our hearts by accompanying hymns, providing worship music, and occasionally accompanying the choir and bells. The Paoli Brass Ensemble rehearses on Thursday nights from 6:00 – 6:50 p.m. (in the fall and spring). Experience with a brass instrument is needed to join this group, but we are always welcoming to new members!
Music at The 505 Service:
The music at The 505 Service lends itself to current and new worship styles. If you’re a gifted vocalist, play acoustic guitar, bass, trap set, keyboard, hand drums, or various other instruments, let us know! The band practices on Sundays in the afternoon before the service.
