Music at Penney Memorial Church
The PMC Sanctuary Choir is a unique group of singers with a variety of musical skills and background. We rehearse from 2-3:30 each Thursday in the church fellowship room and lead worship most Sundays from September through May. All singers are welcome to join with us. There is no audition required; just a desire to glorify God and serve His church, and a willingness to grow in your general music and choral skills. The PMC Sanctuary Choir is the primary source for other ensembles, such as:
The PMC Sanctuary Choir Ensemble, a smaller, select group of 8, 12 or 16 singers, depending on the need, which sings for occasional services and other occasions,
and Hearts in Harmony, a small acapella ladies ensemble. The Women’s and Men’s Choruses, when active, sing for Advent, Lenten and other special services as well as other special events in the community.
The Chancel Bells is our three-octave bell choir, using hand bells and choir chimes in a variety of ways and techniques to create very special music for our worship services. The Chancel Bells is directed by Jennifer Goodwin, a local professional musician and music teacher.
The PMC Sanctuary Brass is our newest ensemble which features a variety of brass ensemble and brass choir music for our services.
The Penney Memorial Church sanctuary is home to our lovely 20-rank Holtkamp Pipe Organ and a nine-foot Steinway Grand Piano which was donated by the J.C. Penney family and moved here from his New York City apartment. Both instruments are in regular use for church services as well as for concerts and special programs.
