Friends of Music concert

PPC's distinguished history of musical excellence, including celebrated conductors, singers and organists, has long played a major role in the congregation's worship and outreach.

PPC's Music Ministry currently encompasses three adult choirs, two children’s choirs, a handbell choir, two praise bands and several ad hoc ensembles, led by a talented professional and volunteer staff across three language communities. Our ongoing concert offerings include the Friends of Music series and the weekly Music at Noon. This Web site will help you discover how you can enjoy PPC's rich musical offerings, and perhaps even how you can become involved.
