First Church has two primary musical groups. They are the Chancel Choir and the Canterbury Bells. Both are under the direction of our Director of Music and Organist, Dr. Leon Burke III.

Canterbury Bells, our handbell choir, is featured monthly on each second Sunday during the program year and on some holidays. They rehearse weekly on Wednesdays, from September through May, at 6:15 pm in the William E. Sample Chapel.

Chancel Choir meets weekly on Thursdays, from September through May, at 7:30 pm in the Music Room, and sing most Sunday mornings in worship. They warm up prior to Sunday services in the Sanctuary at 9:15 am.

Anyone interested in joining the Chancel Choir or the Canterbury Bells, should contact the Church Office at 314-962-0475 so that they may be put in contact with the leaders of our Music program.

The music program also includes young people’s singing groups led by Youth Minister Erick Falconer, who can also be reached at the Church Office number.
