Music at First

First Presbyterian Church has a vibrant music program including the First Presbyterian Choir and the First Presbyterian Handbell Choir led by Music Directors Marnie Giesbrecht and Joachim Segger and Assistant Music Director Graham Fast. Hear and sing with our 1909 Casavant Organ, restored in 2007, as well as with our grand pianos. Vocal and instrumental solos are also frequent parts of worship at First Presbyterian Church. We welcome new members and encourage anyone interested to contact one of our music directors. The choir meets on Wednesday nights from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, and on Sunday mornings at 10 am before the 11 am service. The handbell choir meets on Wednesday nights from 6:15 pm to 7:15 pm, and on Sunday mornings at 9:30 on days when they will be ringing in the service.

Our regular congregational and community concert activities include the annual Christmas Choir Concert and the Traffic Jam series.

We are grateful to God that we are able to safely continue services throughout the Covid-19 pandemic with a vocal quartet comprised of [four of] Betty Kolodziej, soprano; Holly Parkis; alto; Graham Fast, tenor or bass; Harry Currie, bass; Ron Long, tenor. The services are live streamed on and are also available for
