Christ in the Arts

citaFirst 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.

Vivaldi’s Gloria in May 2015 was the first Christ in the Arts performance and in November 2016, Gabriel Faure’s Op 48 Requiem was performed. The FPC Chancel choir, Christ in the Arts Festival orchestra and featured soloists have been a part of both performances.

Inscreen-shot-2017-01-03-at-4-49-29-pm January 2017, FPC  partnered with Nickel Plate Arts and become part of the Hamilton County Cultural Arts district.

On February 26, 2017 Christ is the Arts will presented a Pipe Organ Concert featuring organists Cheryl Mayhew, Clarice Stegall and Aaron Kemp showcasing their various musical styles.  Along with the organ concert, we hosted exhibition featuring local Hamilton County artists.
