Free Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Tuesday, December 5, 2017
Tuesday, December 5, 2017; 11:45 a.m.--As our facilities are currently under construction, please join us at First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta (located in Midtown just 1.5 miles north on Peachtree) for the 20th annual Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Christmas Concert. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra offers a free gift of Christmas music to the Atlanta community. This one-hour lunchtime concert and sing-along is a wonderful way to get in the Christmas spirit with music performed by world class musicians! Doors will open at 11:15 a.m. Tickets are not required (but space will fill up quickly!). For group reservations, contact email@example.com.
Sundays 7:30-10 a.m. | Sundays 4-7 p.m.
If you enjoy singing, playing an instrument and being a part of a fun group of people, you should consider volunteering to be a part of the Worship Band. You do not have to be a professional and can participate as your schedule allows. There are two services each Sunday that use this group of musicians to sing praises and lead songs of worship, and there is always room for more. Commitments range from several times a month to a few times per year.
- If you are not a musician or vocalist, you can assist with the presentation of worship elements on the screens. This is a valuable part of worship and an important role in need of volunteers for both services. We are in need of volunteers. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 9 a.m. Contemporary Worship Band This service is upbeat and worship is family friendly. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings at 7:30 a.m.
- 5:45 p.m. Acoustic Worship Band This service is a relaxed, comfortable setting with acoustic music. We begin rehearsal at 4 p.m. in the Sanctuary.

Wednesdays, 7-9 p.m. (beginning October 4, 2017) | Sundays, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
The Chancel Choir leads worship every Sunday at the 11 a.m. service. Solo voice not required, but the ability to read music and having prior choral experience is helpful. Additionally, the Chancel Choir presents concerts with full orchestra, invites the Atlanta community to join in audience-participation events in the singing of major choral works, participates in theater productions, and takes musical outreach events into the metropolitan Atlanta community.
Ringers play throughout the year during the traditional service and at special events. Sight-reading and prior handbell experience encouraged, but not required. All ages including committed youth are encouraged to join in practicing this discipline. The music repertoire is sacred and secular and often calls for additional instrumentalists, adding greatly to the five octaves of handbells and three octaves of handchimes.
Orchestra NAPC plays at selected worship services at North Avenue in addition to weddings, musical theatre productions, concerts, and special events. Annually, Orchestra NAPC joins members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and other professional musicians in our city to play for the Worship “Service of Lessons & Carols” in December. Any string, wind, brass, or percussion instrumentalist who would like the challenge of playing a variety of music in a worship or secular setting with a group of committed players is invited to join!
We invite our elementary children in grades 1-5 to join us as we learn musical skills, worship practices, develop community and encourage others. Our hope is for our children to realize and value the place of music in worship as they learn a hymn of the month, memorable songs, and group prayers. The Junior Choir will participate in worship services and other special events throughout the academic year.
We invite our preschool (age 3 before current school year) through Kindergarten children to join us as we learn and practice worshiping God through music. We will learn musical skills that include matching pitch, listening, moving to the beat, and playing instruments and musical games. The Cherub Choir sings at worship services several times during the academic year and will also be a part of other special events.
