First Presbyterian has been home to the Reverend Douglas G. Davies Memorial Handbell Choir for the last 15 years. Using a 3-octave Malmark handbell set, the bell choir rehearses weekly and performs numerous times throughout the worship year. The Bell Choir is directed by FPC’s musical director, Mara O'Malley.
Membership in the bell choir is open to any who possess basic music reading skills and are in the 7th grade through adulthood. Rhythm reading skills are especially important. Rehearsals are held weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 in the choir room. It is very important, however, that members regularly attend rehearsals, as significant absences make it nearly impossible to put a piece together.
