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 and Daniel Stokes accompany 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 choral and solo anthems from a wide range of musical traditions, from classical to gospel. We are fortunate to have musical accompaniment from a variety of instruments, including organ, piano, flute, guitar and drums.
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!
Adult Choir and Chime Choir
We welcome all to our musical community. When we resume, rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings and Sundays at 9:30 am (preceding the 10:30 am service), with a break during the summer. Please contact our Music Director, Dorothy Mora, if you’d like to get involved!
We also put on special programs occasionally, such as our “Songs of Hope” benefit concert for the Asylum Seekers Assistance Project (now, AsylumWorks) and Pumpkin Fest of “Mystical Music and Merriment.”
Harold Walbert, Organist
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 provide a way to bring the gift of music to your own home.
