The Adult Choir is open to adult singers and high school students who have completed their sophomore year. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 in room 300 of the Education Building and sings each week for worship from September through May. We sing a wide variety of music, from choral masterworks of the Baroque and Classical eras to music written by living composers, from anthems from the English choral tradition to German chorales, hymn arrangements, early American music, and spirituals.
First Baptist Church has a 4 1/2 octave Bell Choir. The group rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 to 7:00 in room 305 of the Education Building and plays for worship approximately once a month, beginning in September and continuing through Palm Sunday. The music the Bell Choir plays includes settings of hymns, arrangements of formal-traditional music, and original compositions for bell choirs.
Music Makers (Children's Choir)
The Music Makers is for children from preK through fifth grade. This group meets on Wednesday evenings from 5:45 to 6:15. There are three areas of focus with this choir:
1) Learning music to sing for church, approximately once a month
2) Engaging in general musical activities, including playing instruments, reading and notating music, singing fun songs, and incorporating movement in music
3) Providing age appropriate social interactions
