Vocal Arts Ensemble presents “O Holy Night” Holiday Concert

On Friday, December 10, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. the Vocal Arts Ensemble invites you to join them for their Christmas holiday concert, “O Holy Night” in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church.

Its 32 members are selected mainly from among musicians who have sung in other choral groups under Dr. Wynkoop’s direction. The ensemble’s mostly a cappella repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to the present.

New mask guidance for indoor gatherings!

New mask guidance for indoor gatherings!
Citizens of the Triangle have been under a mandate to wear masks when inside public spaces to help fight the delta variant and ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated.’ FPC is adhering to this mandate and asking members and friends to wear masks when inside buildings at FPC.

To keep everyone worshipping in the sanctuary as safe as possible as the pandemic continues:
Worship leaders will wear masks, unless speaking directly into microphones;
The choir will return in phases;
Music will be provided by individuals or small groups.

(All worship participants will be vaccinated, of course.)
