Our Chancel Choir is directed by our wonderful new Organist and Music Director, Rob Passow. His leadership made up entirely of volunteers, participates in all our Sunday services except during the summer months. While small in number, the choir provides confidence to the congregation to respond with hymns and musical responses to the various movements of our worship services.
The Hand Bell Choir is directed by Dr. Betty Clark and they regularly enriche the musical component of our worship. It, too, is totally volunteer. Both choirs are always delighted when new people volunteer to participate.
Special Programs of Music
At least twice a year, usually around Easter and Christmas, the choirs prepare special programs that enrich the seasons for FPCA members and friends and neighbors. These are occasions when additional voices and/or instruments join our choir (Be sure to see the picture of the Lewis and Hitchcock tracker organ below).
Our FPCA Concert Series is has just finished its 8th Season, having hosted 32 unique and special concerts for our local community. Usually, we host choirs (like the Washington Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the United States Army Choir), Instrumental Soloists (like Chilean/American organ recording artist, Filipe Dominquez, who has played on the most famous organs throughout the world), and a host of piano, instrumental, and singing artists. Our Sanctuary unique acoustical design, our custom-made Tracker Organ, concert grand piano…as well as our large staging area provide an ideal space for large and small concerts. If you are interested in participating in the 2024 FPCA Concert Series, please don’t hesitate to contact us at fpcannandale.org, [email protected], or by phone (703-941-3300). Thank you.
