First Presbyterian Church is excited to add an additional music program to our ministry! In 2015, Michael Davis, FPC Music Director wanted to share our amazing sanctuary (and beautiful music venue) with others in the community outside our immediate congregation and provide high quality musical performances free to the public. Michael is also the Assistant Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and is surrounded by talented musicians both inside and outside our congregation. Thus Christ in the Arts was born. In January 2017, FPC partnered with Nickel Plate Arts and became part of the Hamilton County Cultural Arts district.
Sunday January 28, 2018 is our second annual Pipe Organ Concert featuring solo performances by organists Aaron Kemp and Greg Gibson along with performances by the First Presbyterian Church choir under the direction of Michael Davis, Director of Music and accompanied by organist Cheryl Mayhew, Reception and Silent Auction!
Concert seating: 3:30pm
First Presbyterian Church 1207 Conner Street, Noblesville
Concert Admission: Free, Free will offering will be collected
