Future Orchestra at CPC


Future Orchestra! 


Christ Presbyterian Church


Several weeks ago we said goodbye to our student string players, all of whom have finished high school and are beginning college.  It’s hard to imagine our Christmas and Easter cantatas without them…

 But wait!  Check out the top row of our Children’s Choir – in addition to singing, all of these upper elementary musicians are already playing an instrument.  We will hear some of them this summer, and, hopefully, more in years to come.  Top row, left to right:


Keith Scroggs recently started clarinet lessons and has already arranged a piece for worship.  Keith, his bassoonist mom and pianist grand mom will provide our special music offerings on August 3.


Maddy Raut plays violin and is in our Chime Choir along with mom Christy and sister Nayana.  Maddy also played wind chimes during a recent choir anthem.

Jeremy John plays violin, and will play “Seek Ye First” in worship on August 10.  Jeremy rings in the Chime Choir with his dad Sujin.

Brendan Sielinski told me last week he plays violin.  Brendan and his grandmother ring in the Chime Choir.

Roy Rinehart is a drummer and also rings chimes.  Roy played the Tom-Tom in a recent Children’s Choir song.

Colin McLean plays viola and will play “Ode to Joy” during worship next Sunday, July 27.  Colin and his Mom ring in the Chime Choir.

In Our Music this Sundaycasey



Casey MacLean, violinist and one of our graduates, will play “Shall We Gather at the River.”  Casey will attend William & Mary this fall.

Our women’s chorus will sing “Come, Follow Me” during the offertory.


Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness!  Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp!  Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!  Praise him with clanging cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!  Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!  Psalm 150

    Wow, I am so proud to see my nephew, JEREMY JOHN, (boy in the rear row, light blue shirt, wearing glasses), in the choir! His father, Sujin, played the organ at Church, when he was six years old! Sujin’s father (deceased) was also a musician & very active at the Church choir. You have done it Jeremy! Keep it up. Congrats & God Bless.
