First Presbyterian Church Dallas Chancel Choir

page for the many happenings of the FPC Chancel Choir

The FPC Chancel Choir is a group of approximately 50 volunteer adult singers with widely varying musical backgrounds. This Choir provides the primary musical leadership for worship at First Presbyterian Church. Its repertoire ranges from spirituals to music of the Renaissance; from John Rutter to J.S. Bach. While the preparation and performance of liturgical music for worship is our primary mission, we also enjoy the performance of major works with orchestra. The Choir rehearses every Wednesday of the year from 7:00-8:30 pm. No audition is required. The choir is directed by Joshua Taylor, Director of Worship and Music
