MUSIC

Music is an integral part of our worship.  Through music we learn, it can express our feelings when we find it difficult to find our own words, it may be an echo to a sermon, offering praise, or even a sincere prayer.  Many times we feel the spirit more strongly than by spoken word.
Our two manual (keyboards) electronic Rodgers organ is voiced and equalized to fit the acoustics of the Sanctuary which is also home to a 1914 (approximately) Emerson grand piano.  These instruments praise God every Sunday during our services in congregational singing, choir accompaniment, and solos, as well as in concerts and special events.

Provo Interfaith Choir

The choir began in 2014 as a collaboration between several denominations in the central Utah Valley as a way to bring people of different sects together and celebrate through music our commonalities.  Under the direction of Dave Lewis, the choir rehearses together in spring and fall to prepare music for various events including United We Sing! as well as participating in the two previous Carols by Candlelight.  This year the choir has been invited to sing at Summerfest – Utah Valley Day of Prayer, held at Utah Valley University in early June.
The choir is a open to all and rehearsals at 5pm in the Sanctuary. More information can be found at Provo Interfaith Choir.
