First Baptist Choir
The FBC Choir consists of 10-20 singers of all voice types who enjoy singing great choral literature together. The group provides most of the music during worship services throughout the school year. In many ways, the FBC Choir is a traditional church choir, but we have been known to branch out into musical theatre, South African and gospel when the spirit moves us.
In addition to regular church services, we participate in choir festivals. In 2012 we participated in a performance of Mozart's Missa Brevis in F and Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen.
We currently rehearse September through June.
If you have questions or are interested in participating, please contact Shella in the office, 273-5800. We'd love to have you join us!
For a report and list of the music program's selections played during 2007, please see our Music Report.
The New Creation Singers
The New Creation Singers is a small worship band that strives to provide meaningful acoustic music in the folk and contemporary genres for services at First Baptist. The group provides music about once a month for the Sunday morning worship services at First Baptist. We draw our music from the varied musical experiences of members of the group, contemporary Christian music, the more traditional folk idiom- wherever we find meaningful music that interprets to us and, we hope, to the congregation, God's unconditional love and his working in our lives.
On occasion we also have provided music for various community programs, including during registration activities for local Crop Walks and, more recently, performed an evening concert at the Norton Chapel of Keuka College as part of the 75th annual summer retreat of the American Baptist Men of New York State.

What does the Lord require of you?
To do Justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.
Peace to all who enter here.
