The choral program at Fourth Presbyterian Church is an integral part of the worship life of the congregation. It seeks to express the love and glory of God and enhance the worship experience through inspiring and artistic expressions of praise.
In keeping with the rich tradition and heritage of musical excellence at Fourth Church and in recognizing the interdependence of spiritual and musical growth, the choral program endeavors to offer learning opportunities for all of its participants. It also makes a special contribution to the cultural life of the Chicago community and, in doing so, strives to enrich the lives of those it touches and to gather into the congregation those who believe in and work to advance the message of God’s redeeming love.
There is a place in the Fourth Church choral program for anyone who wishes to learn, grow, serve, and praise God in song. Come make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
