Point Pleasant Presbyterian is noted throughout the Jersey Shore region for its unusually rich music programs.
The Chancel Choir, under the direction of William R. Shoppell, Jr., sings most Sunday mornings from September through June, alternating between our 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. services. The Chancel Choir typically presents two special musical pieces each year: an Advent/Christmas program on a Sunday morning in December, and an afternoon concert piece in the Spring. Spring Concert pieces have included Brahms’ “Requiem” and Dvorak’s “Stabat Mater.” The Chancel Choir is open to all who are interested in praising God through song; the ability to read music is helpful, but not essential. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings, 7:30-9:00 p.m.
The Bell Choir, under the direction of William R. Shoppell, Jr., presents a program of handbell music on selected Sunday-morning services throughout the year. Rehearsals are Monday evenings, 6:15-7:15 p.m.
The Dove Choir (pre-school through grade 5), under the direction of Rebecca Muraglia, sings at selected Sunday-morning services throughout the year. Rehearsals take place on Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m.
