In 2019-20, Proclamation will host a concert series and special services in which music will play a significant role. For more information about the events as they get closer, revisit this web page or call the church office.
Our concert series presents fine music of different styles, genres, and time periods, including choral, vocal and instrumental music. Concerts are in the Sanctuary, open to the public, and free; an offering is received at each program to assist with expenses. A reception will follow each concert where you can enjoy refreshments and meet the artists. Mark your calendar and plan to be part of this wonderful music experience.

The Singing Sergeants is the official chorus of the United States Air Force. Stationed in Washington, D.C., the group features active duty Airmen musicians who perform a wide range of musical styles, from traditional Americana, opera, and choral standards to modern Broadway and jazz. In concerts throughout the country, the Singing Sergeants honor servicemen, inspire American citizens, and reach diverse audiences with the beauty and power of music.
Combined Presbytery Choir
Building community with fellow believers is important, and for our annual Reformation Service in the fall and the Saturday service at the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology near the spring, we will again invite singers from the area presbyteries to join our choir. We’ll have an early call time that day to prepare the music. It will be wonderful to welcome friends in the faith to our church and to make music to the Lord together. If you are interested in participating in this combined choir, registration is necessary. Click the link below for further information.
