Music Ministry

 

XmasChoirsNew04The spirit is alive in many musical endeavors at Hope, including:

Harrison & Harrison Pipe Organ – the first of its kind in the St Louis region, the organ was installed in the fall of 2002 and continues to attract praise and admiration from the musical community far and wide. Numerous organ recitals, concerts featuring organ and orchestra, and regular weekly worship have convinced the congregation of the wisdom of the purchase of this marvelous instrument. Hope will host a recital during the North Central Regional Convention of the American Guild of Organists in June 2015.
