Our Director of Music, Diana Riggs, holds music degrees from Stephens College and the University of Missouri School of Music, and has continued her education at Boston University, School of Fine and Applied Art, majoring in organ and liturgical studies. Living in retirement at Uplands Village, she feels privileged to be part of the staff of this dynamic church.
The music program includes a well-balanced choir of about 30 voices, a handbell choir of 11 members regularly playing three octaves of bells, and a most enthusiastically singing congregation, enjoying a wide variety of musical styles. The church provides an excellent acoustical setting for all these groups as well as for three high-quality instruments: piano, organ, and carillon, playable from a keyboard as well as from the church tower.
We sponsor an annual public concert series, provided by members of the community and guest artists who perform in a variety of genres.
