First Church Choirs – something for everyone!

Adult Musical Groups


GALLERY CHOIR

Who: All singers, middle school age and up
What: SATB choir, learning and presenting a wide variety of music
When: Thursday evenings, 8 pm; Sunday warm-up, 9:15 am
Where: Music Room in the Meetinghouse
Why: Provide musical leadership for 10:00 Worship Service.

Under the guidance of Mark D. Watkins, the Choir sings every week as part of the 10:00 Worship Service; there are also special holiday services and concert opportunities throughout the year.     A wide variety of choral music is learned and sung as part of our Sunday worship services.     New members are always welcome! No auditions necessary.

BELL CHOIR

Who: Ringers, middle school age and up
What: Learning and presenting a variety of handbell music
When: Thursday evenings, 6:30 – 7:15 pm
Where: Music Room in the meetinghouse
Why: Play for worship (monthly) plus other opportunities

This group consists of “ringers” of all ability levels. Reading music is helpful but not necessary. In addition to playing in Worship from time to time, the Bell Choir also takes part in occasional concerts.  Come join us – auditions are not necessary.

Strings Attached

Our inter-generational string ensemble is back in action!

Watch for upcoming rehearsal dates and times.

We hope that all of our string players will join us!

Drumming Circle

Who: Anyone interested in drumming, elementary age and up
What: Learning basic drumming skills and rhythmic patterns
When: 3rd Wednesday of each month, 7:00-8:00 PM
Where: Music Room in the meetinghouse
Why: Fun, fellowship, and occasionally sharing drums in worship

Maria Eberle leads this group. Drumming is more than just percussive rhythm.  There is much research to suggest that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system, lowers blood pressure and produces feelings of well-being, a release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self.      Come and give it a try!


First Church Youth

Our church is blessed with many very talented young people.  From time to time, we hear from some of them who minister in music and song, assist in worship leadership, and express their faith in other ways.  Any interested Youth of First Church in Windsor, grades 7 through 12, are invited to participate.  Our Youth are also welcome and encouraged to participate in Bell Choir…Gallery Choir….and…

GenerationZ!

GenerationZ is for everyone!
