Chancel Choir, Handbell Choir, Skinner Pipe Organ, Yamaha Grand Piano and Schulmerich Handbells

The Chancel Choir practices and sings weekly during the school year with a variety of musical styles corresponding to the focus of our weekly worship. We are in proud possession of a fully-restored 1925 four-manual Skinner pipe organ and a Yamaha acoustic C7X grand piano. Organ, choral, and instrumental concerts are sometimes held in the sanctuary. We have an active handbell choir that practices every Saturday at 10 a.m. and plays regularly. This choir uses our three-octave chromatic set of Schulmerich handbells, and is open to all aspiring ringers!

Early December brings the annual Sing-Along-Messiah concert, an annual event since 2000. This is a gift to the community, as well as a means to raise funds for Housing Forward (formerly, West Suburban PADS), which serves the homeless in our community.

Those interested in knowing more about joining the music ministry or the Skinner pipe organ should contact the director of music ministries through music@firstumcoakpark.org.
