Music at First provides an opportunity for individuals to worship God through the wonder and mystery of music, using one’s God-given talent in joyful and reverent praise, while enjoying fellowship with other choir members in serving the greater congregation of The First Church.
The music ministry’s purpose is to inspire, teach, challenge and further the cause of quality music across a wide array of genres and styles. Through the different facets of the music ministry, the program encourages the church’s congregants and the ministry’s participants to explore and find the right place for them, where they can enhance their own worship experience and that of others, through the joy of music.
ALL CHOIRS ARE OPEN to both members of The First Church and the wider Nashua community.
All levels of proficiency are welcome, and ensembles are tailored to a lesser or greater level of musical ability or experience. Each ensemble’s goal is one: to enhance the quality of worship and bring the congregation closer to God through high standards in vocal and instrumental music performance.
In addition to this active “inreach” ministry, The First Church also hosts music “outreach” through its ambitious First Music Concert Series. (Both recognized by New Hampshire Magazine, as “Best of NH 2012 for free classical music”) – Further information about Music at First and the First Music Concert Series may be found at firstchurchnashua.org or first-music.org respectively.
