Our Pipe Organ
Our Cornel Zimmer Pipe Organ was completed in 2005 to celebrate the church’s 40th birthday, click here to view photographs of the organ, see some of the stages of its construction, and see a listing of the complete specifications.
Dust off your flute, guitar, clarinet, trumpet, violin or bagpipe! If you play an instrument, we have a place for you! Many of our hymns, choral anthems, and other works can easily be enhanced with the sounds of additional instruments. Please let our Minister of Music, Clint Miller, know how you can add your sound!
The Music Culture at NDPC
Music is integrated into all aspects of our worship and lives at NDPC. Our choir members enjoy a rich relationship with one another and our youth and children’s choirs sing multiple times a year during our regular worship services. Our music crosses cultures and generations as expressed in traditional hymns and global melodies. Our choir selections intentionally reflect our rich Presbyterian heritage as well as our expanding influence in the larger world. We maintain an open invitation to our choir rehearsals on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm.
