Music at Gwynedd Square

Music at Gwynedd Square

Do you like to sing? Do you play an instrument? Do you enjoy making music with others?

 

Gwynedd Square Presbyterian Church at Lansdale, PA has a long tradition of rigorous music program, including a 20-voice adult choir, a 25-member concert band, and a contemporary music band.


The adult choir and the concert band are welcoming new members, and this is a good time to join and share your musical gifts!

 

The GSPC Adult choir rehearses every Wednesday at 7:30pm-9:00pm and sings every Sunday at 10:45am with a warm-up at 10:15am. We perform a wide range of repertoire from the Renaissance/Baroque to the Contemporary and Gospel. We are currently recruiting members for all sections, Soprano, Alto, and especially Tenor & Bass.

 

The GSPC Concert Band rehearses every Thursday at 7:00-7:45pm and performs periodically during worship services, including a community concert in October*, a December Service (12/10/2017), Palm Sunday (3/25/2018), and a Picnic Service (TBD in June 2018).

 

*New! This year the community concert will be on Sunday, October 15, at 4pm at GSPC.

 

**This is a volunteer position and comes with no pay or benefits. 

***High school and college students are encouraged to join for community service hours (TBD) or college internship credit.

 

Rehearsals will start on Wednesday, September 6 & Thursday, September 7, 2017.
