What's Happening at First Presbyterian?

Sing "Messiah" with the Chancel Choir

Posted: 07/31/2017
After a short summer break the Chancel Choir will return to its regular schedule in mid-August. Our first rehearsal will take place on Wednesday, August 16 at 7 pm.
This Christmas, the choir will present George Frederic Handel’s “Messiah” with orchestra and soloists. While many churches present only the Christmas portion of this renowned work, we will offer the whole Christ story through Scripture as set to the music of Handel.The presentation is scheduled for the evening of Thursday, December 7 and will strive to tell Christ’s story to the greater Baton Rouge community through this magnificent musical setting.
We would love to fill the chancel with as many First Presbyterian singers as possible. Please consider joining us. Singing is indeed praying twice: once through the language of Scripture and once through the musical language. You will be blessed by this experience but moreover you will bless others and share in telling the greatest story ever told. 
A detailed rehearsal schedule is coming soon. Please contact Steve Rushing if you would like to join us.
