Music Ministries- Making a Joyful Noise
The choir of the United Methodist Church of Palm Springs has been an integral part of the life of the church since its founding in 1965. It is a volunteer group composed of 20 to 30 members of the congregation. They provide meaningful special music for the services of the church every Sunday. During the Easter and Advent seasons, the group puts in many hours of extra rehearsals to present a Cantata or musical service as a special service for the congregation. It's not about making a beautiful sound; it's about making a joyful noise.
Rehearsals are Thursday evenings at 7:15 pm in the church atrium. No auditions necessary to join!

The bell choir is directed by Dr. Ed Hartman and consists of thirteen ringers who ring five octaves of handbells. They perform classical and sacred music. They rehearse every Wednesday evening at 7:15 pm from late September to mid-May and perform about once a month at the Sunday morning worship service during that time period.
