Music Program

From the Chancel from the balcony, every Sunday the harmonious voices of our church music program bring blessing and inspiration.  Led by our Organist Choirmaster, Dr. Lawrence P. Schreiber, the Chancel Choir has both professional and non-professional vocalists.  Anyone who reads music and wishes to share their talent is encouraged to contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Chancel Choir Rehearsal

Singers rehearse Sundays at 10:00 am in room 312.  Those who have the voice and commitment are welcome.

The Chancel Choir sings every Sunday, as well as during special services including Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter and the well-known traditional Christmas Candlelight Carols on the second Sunday of December.  The Christmas Candlelight Carols is a concert that features combined choirs and instrumentalists.

The Organ Project

The church has contracted with Austin Organ Company of Hartford, Connecticut, to build a glorious new pipe organ, custom designed for our historic sanctuary.  The organ will have over 7,000 pipes, 115 ranks, and a 5-manual console.  High in the gallery will be 61 brass horizontal pipes (the Trompette en Chamade).  This exciting instrument is currently under construction, which began in the Fall of 2012.  You can find more information about this historic instrument here.

Handbell Choir

The church has a 4-octave set of handbells, led by FBC members Dr. Elizabeth Cain and Clark Smith.  The handbell choir rings regularly throughout the year.  Those interested in this unique ministry are invited to meet and “ring” at 9:00 am on Sundays in room 320.

Children’s Choir

Rebecca Ellison is the director of the FBC Children’s Choir, which rehearses Sundays at 10:30 am in room 317.  The choir sings in selected services of worship throughout the year.
