Concerts at DPC
DPC Concert Series
A yearly concert series is put together each year for church members and the community to enjoy. These concerts are FREE and open to the public. The concerts range from solo instrumental and vocal musicians, to small group, choral, and instrumental ensembles, and are performed by local amateur and professional musicians and musical groups.
The DPC choir sings from September through June, and is conducted by Director of Music, Shane G. Trace. They perform in worship each Sunday and for special services such as Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday, and Easter. They also perform special concerts throughout the choir season. The DPC choir is comprised of men and women of all different ages and abilities. They perform all genres and styles of music from classical to contemporary. Anyone is welcome to join; being able to read music is not a requirement. The choir rehearses each Thursday from 7-9pm in the church sanctuary.
Kid Klub Singers
Our Kids Klub children and youth perform throughout the year during various services and events. This group is conducted by Shane G. Trace and Nancy Pratt. Rehearsals vary based on participants schedules. Each year the children and youth also perform a Christmas pageant, directed by Lisa Andres.
DPC Youth Ringers
Various youth from the DPC Community perform special selections on handbells and chimes throughout the year. Rehearsals vary based on participants schedules. This group is conducted by Nola Taracko.
DPC owns a Baldwin grand piano, which is used to accompany the choir, solo singers, and congregational singing.
Shantz Pipe Organ
DPC owns a 2-manual, 16-rank pipe organ built by the Shantz Company. The instrument was moved and redesigned for the DPC space by the Muller Pipe Organ Company. This organ was a gift from two generous members of the DPC congregation. The organ is suited to play all types of organ repertoire. It is used every Sunday to accompany congregational hymn singing and is used regularly to accompany the choir and solo singers.
