The largest range of handbells in the world are coming to First Pres in 2019 for the annual concert series! This 12-member brass ensemble from Westminter Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey will be on their winter concert tour, stopping at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale on January 20, 2019. Conducted by Kathleen Ebling Shaw, the Westminster Handbell Choir is recognized for its virtuosity and powerful percussion and organ performances. You won’t want to miss this spectacular afternoon of music!

Music is the “universal language” when mere spoken words fail us. The exciting sounds of choir, organ, brass, percussion, and full orchestra inspire and lift people’s hearts to a higher spiritual level, and provide a deeper expression of our faith.

Our music program involves everyone, from the youngest of children through adults of all ages, and incorporates almost every kind of musical genre. We look forward to harmonizing with you in Music Ministry!
