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


The adult choir provides music for most Sunday worship services as well as special services. A wide variety of musical selections include traditional to modern compositions, often accompanied by instrumentalists.


Sanctuary Choir (Adults)

The Sanctuary Choir sings at the 10:30 am service each week and at both services on festival occasions.

Women's Chorus

The women of the Sanctuary Choir form the core of this group. The Women's Chorus sings at both services the last Sunday of the month. 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.

Men's Chorus

The men of the Sanctuary Choir form the core of this group. The Men's Chorus sings at both services the last Sunday of the month. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings every other month alternating with the Women's Chorus. This is a good opportunity for men who enjoy singing but can't make a regular commitment to the Sanctuary Choir.

Children's Choir (Kindergarten–Grade Five)

Typically the Children's Choir sings the second Sunday of each month at the 10:30 am service, and at both services on festival occasions.

Youth Choir (Grade Six–Young Adult)

The Youth Choir alternates singing between the 8:00 am and 10:30 am services, and at both services on festival occasions.

Youth Bells (Grades Four–Twelve)

The Youth Bell Choir performs every other month at the 10:30 am service. Youths must have some experience reading music. We have several openings in this group. Please contact Steve Inners if you are interested in joining the bell choir.


Bell Choir (Adults)

The Adult Bell Choir performs at both services once each month. This group is limited to thirteen players. Openings can occur at any time so if you are interested, please inform Steve Inners. The ability to read music and understand rhythm patterns is a pre-requisite for participating.


INSTRUMENTALISTS

Various instrumental music is used throughout the year. Performances often include Palm’s brass and tympani instrumentalists. If you play an instrument and would like to play a solo or be part of an ensemble, please register on Choir Registration Sunday.
