Music Ministry

First Presbyterian Church is full to the rafters with enthusiastic music making. Programs are open to all children, youth, and adults of all musical backgrounds and skill levels. Choral and instrumental music form a key part of worship from week to week. The sanctuary houses a three-manual organ with 3,000 pipes, ranging in size from two inches to over 16 feet. Bell choirs play Whitechapel and Malmark bells.

Choir rehearsals and worship participation run from September through May. Click on age-level tabs to see descriptions and rehearsal schedules. Due to limited enrollment, we ask that those interested in bell choir contact Peter Leibensperger (PLeibensperger@haddonfieldpres.org), Minister of Music, before September 13th.
