Music + Arts

Music in Worship

Our vision for the Music and Fine Arts programs at Fifth Avenue extends well into the realm of transformative ministry.

We strive to offer a rich, relevant program that engages the congregation in worship and creates opportunities to share the wealth of artistic talents in our community.

Music is at the heart of a worship experience that, together with the Word, provides a genuine opportunity to encounter the holy. Our repertoire features the finest sacred organ, choral, vocal and instrumental art music from many periods and Christian traditions, including contemporary music from around the world.

Our choices are diverse and broad, reflecting our eclectic community even as they honor the rich traditions and heritage of this historic church.

Beyond worship, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church offers a year-round program of sacred music concerts, exhibitions of painting and photography, and literary events that challenge us to consider questions of faith and explore new dimensions of spirituality through artistic expression.
