The Music Ministry provides the music during our weekly services and special events. Individuals have the opportunity to participate in the annual Christmas Concert Choir or may audition to serve on the Praise Team/Music Ministry team.
The goal of the music ministry is to glorify God by helping to lead the congregation in corporate worship using a variety of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Our emphasis is on congregational participation, so we strive to select music that is singable. In addition, music is selected carefully to ensure that each song is theologically accurate, doctrinally rich, and musically excellent. Our focus is God and His glory.
The choir sings for the annual Christmas Concert series. To be notified of future choir opportunities, please fill out the volunteer form volunteer form.
Parkside members and attenders are welcome to invite their family members and friends to join Choir. Regular attendance at Choir rehearsals is expected.

On November 9, more than a dozen musicians will be presenting “Parkside in the Arts,” featuring classical chamber music. Performed in small groups, classical chamber music has been referred to as “the music of friends,” and it is this type of friendly musical conversation that a group of our own Parkside musicians would like you to hear. “[It’s nice] whenever you're playing in small groups because it's as if you're having a conversation without words. So the way you look, and the way you gesture, and the way you turn a phrase, is a conversation,” say Alan Harrell, cellist for the Cleveland Orchestra.
