Music is an essential part of our Worship. The Adult Choir is under the leadership of Dorothy Mora, Music Director, an accomplished choral director and flutist. Harold Walbert accompanies the choir on organ and piano.
Music is integrated throughout the worship service with special organ music for Preludes, Offertories and Postludes, hymn singing, and choir anthems that embrace a wide range of musical styles from classical to gospel. We are fortunate to have musical accompaniment from a variety of instruments, including organ, piano, flute, guitar and drums. Children participate in musical activities on a regular basis, both as members of the children’s choir and players of their own musical instruments.
Our congregation loves and appreciates music, from Bach and Beethoven to spirituals. We invite you to join our wonderful Adult Choir and Soloists in making music at Cleveland Park Church!

Our organist, Harold Walbert, has taken his organ playing expertise to a new level with his first CD, “Mostly Bach.” Bach, a pioneer of organ music, seemed like the natural choice for a majority of the selections, and they will be familiar to many people. The CD is being sold at a suggested donation of $20, and proceeds will all go to support CPC music programs. Please email Dawn Straitz to purchase a copy. The CDs make wonderful gifts, or as a way to bring the gift of music to your own home.
The Adult Choir welcomes all to their fun, spirited musical community. The Choir practices Wednesdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 9:30 AM (preceding the 10:30 AM service)
During Sunday School our children are provided musical instruction by Dorothy Mora and perform during worship several times each year.
Cleveland Park Church enjoys the musical talents of all of its members. Please contact Dorothy Mora if you are interested in contributing your talents and area of interest to the service–as a choral singer or soloist, on the chimes, or with your own musical instrument.
We have many talented musicians as members who, from time to time, display those talents. If you would like to add to a service by performing by yourself or with the choir or a smaller group of performers, please let Dorothy Mora know.
