O Sing to the Lord a New Song!
Palm City Presbyterian Church continues its great tradition of sacred music.
Chancel Choir: This group of singers rehearses Thursday nights from 7:00-8:30 (Oct.-May). They sing for the 8:30 and 11:00 services on Sunday morning. Our conductor is Dr. Klostreich and accompanist is Joanne Raulin. All singers are welcome.
"When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" by Gilbert Martin
Bells of Praise: Our adult hand-bell ensemble, under the direction of Joanne Raulin, rehearses Thursday nights from 5:00-6:30 (Oct.-May) and plays regularly for morning worship at 8:30 and 11:00.
"O Sacred Head Now Wounded" (Good Friday performance)
Kids Ring: This group of young students rehearses Sunday afternoons at 4:00 and performs at least once a quarter for our traditional worship services.
Cornerstone: This contemporary praise team leads worship at our 9:30 service in the Huizenga Center. Participation is by audition only and includes vocalists, percussionists, and guitar players.
Brass Ensemble: 10-12 musicians fill out this large brass & percussion ensemble. Participation is by audition only through Dr. Klostreich. They typically rehearse the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings of each month and assist in worship at the 8:20 and 11:00 services on the 4th Sunday of each month (Oct.-April).
Special Events: During the year our music ministry hosts several "large scale" events such as a Christmas musical, Lenten concerts, and even dramatic musicals. These events often include larger instrumental ensembles.
The Walker-Colby Organ
The largest organ in Martin County, the Walker-Colby organ is a 4 manual, 81 stop hybrid. Equipped with Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) it offers both flexibility and beauty for the musician and audience. The inaugural concert was given by Samuel Metzger of Choral Ridge Presbyterian Church in 2006.
