Renowned Performances at FPLex

The First Parish Sanctuary Choir (ages 14-adult) rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 PM and sings at the Sunday 10:30 AM worship services with a 9:30 AM warm-up. The Sanctuary Choir also sings in the Fall Concert ( This year – Jams for Justice with a full jazz band) and the Spring Concert (Sacred Chant Concert). See below for the choir schedule this year. If you would like to “try us out,” please feel free to start coming to rehearsals or the choir retreat and feel free to contact the music minister, Rip Jackson, if you have any questions about our program. Our choir rehearsals are fun and full of music from many genres. All are welcome! Our music minister is available by phone, email or appointment if you would like to share your musical talents in worship and concerts!
