JOIN THE CHOIR!
The choir is now meeting in person on Thursdays in the Parish Hall practicing safe distancing, with everyone wearing N95 masks and having ventilation during rehearsals. We are learning music in a variety of styles and welcoming anyone who wants to sing. No audition is necessary. If you are interested, please contact Miranda at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Music at First Parish
The Music Program at First Parish seeks to enrich and enhance our collective experience of spirituality and community through music. You may contact the Music Committee at email@example.com.
First Parish Choir
The First Parish Choir is the cornerstone of the music program, providing music for most Sunday worship services. In addition, the choir sings for two services on Christmas Eve and Easter. The choir’s eclectic repertoire includes choral classics, early music, gospel, folk songs and world music. The First Parish Choir welcomes adult and high school singers who love choral singing and the unique musical community of a choir. The ability to read music is not required, though it is helpful. There are no auditions. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings from 7 to 8:30.
Under the direction of Diane Burke, the church’s Handbell Choir will continue the long tradition of handbell music at First Parish in Lincoln, and will ring for several Sunday morning services during the church year. The group brings a rich variety of handbell repertoire to worship services and concerts here and in the wider community. Watch the calendar for dates they will participate in services.
The Parish House is graced by a 1914 Mason & Hamlin grand piano as well as a 19th century Hutchings tracker organ, whose decorated pipes beautifully complement the warm colors of the room’s vintage stained glass windows. In the Sanctuary, there is a recently renovated 1970 neo-Baroque Noack Organ for accompaniment.
