music  ministry

Palm continues to be a source for the nurturing of our souls. We are inspired by the sound of organ, piano, bells, voices and various instruments that are such an integral part of our worship experience. Whether it is the delicate sound of a soft flute soaring above the organ or the power of a full brass ensemble complementing our magnificent pipe organ, we are fortunate to have so many people offering their time and talent to enrich the worship experience.

Sanctuary Choir (Adults)

The Sanctuary Choir sings at the 10:30 am service most weeks and at both services on festival occasions. A wide variety of musical selections include traditional to modern compositions, often accompanied by instrumentalists.

Women's Chorus

The women of the Sanctuary Choir form the core of this group. The Women's Chorus sings at the 10:30 AM service the last Sunday of the months in which they rehearse. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings every other month alternating with the Men's Chorus. This is a good opportunity for women who enjoy singing but can't make a regular commitment to the Sanctuary Choir.

The men of the Sanctuary Choir form the core of this group. The Men's Chorus sings at the 10:30 AM service the last Sunday of the months in which they rehearse. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings every other month alternating with the Women's Chorus.
