Music

Make a Joyful Noise to the lord

Music is an integral part of worship here at Myers Park Pres and is a much-beloved element of worship for both our traditional and contemporary services. Whether you keep rhythm on a bass, sing loudly in the shower, or simply want to learn more, all are welcome to share the musical gifts God has given you.

No audition required to participate in any of our excellent ensembles.

Pipe Organs

Sanctuary Organ

Our main Sanctuary organ is a 75-rank Casavant, Op. 2625 (1961) which is played from a four manual French terraced style console (2008). In addition to the main instrument, the gallery organ is a 25-rank Casavant and is played from a three manual English style console. Both organs may be played as separate instruments or united as one instrument from either console.

Chapel Organ

Our chapel organ is an Allen Renaissance Quantum model Q285 with English Cathedral specification.

Carillon

Our carillon comprises 27 bells (fully chromatic in two octaves from C to C with the addition of the upper C sharp and D sharp bells). Our instrument was built in 1984 by the John Taylor Company of England.

Carillonneurs

Ring the Carillon

The carillon (the tower bells) is played before and after Sunday services, as well as for weddings, funerals, and other services as requested. The ability to read music is necessary and piano training is extremely helpful. 

Contact Lexi Kramer to get involved.

Special thanks to Jim Kothe for the production of this video tour.
