Music Notes

"Kids Praise God!," PUMC's new children's musical group, began rehearsing this month. The group meets from 5:15-6 p.m. in the Music Room. Children in 1st grade and up are invited to come join the fun every Thursday! Please contact Heidi Flower for more information.

Prospect Choirs

From September to June, our choirs perform each Sunday at PUMC. Our vocal and hand bell choirs perform a variety of music, from classical to contemporary, traditional to gospel!

The Senior Choir is a non-auditioned group that meets each Wednesday evening from 7 – 8:30 and again before Sunday worship service at 9:00 a.m. Anyone high school age and older is welcome to join us! We prepare an anthem for each Sunday’s service and usually perform a cantata on Palm Sunday.

A Junior/Youth Choir program is also offered. Weekly rehearsals are held and the choir performs each Sunday. Any student in grades 3 through high school is welcome.

The Prospect Tower Bell Choir rehearses after church on Sundays. A hand bell or hand chime anthem is performed once a month during our worship services.

Please contact the church office at 860-582-3443 for more specific information.


H. S. Liederkranz Concert

The dinner/concert held on May 22nd was a HUGE success! We served approximately 135 dinners and the concert was very favorably received. The H. S. Liederkranz put on a wonderful program. This was truly a team effort! Thanks to everyone who helped make this such a great night! Our profit from the dinner was $2,000, which will make a nice addition to the Organ Restoration Fund.




Palm Sunday Cantata

“The Journey to the Cross,” a Lenten Cantata, was presented by the Senior Choir in the Prospect Sanctuary on the afternoon of Palm Sunday. The Multi-Media experience traversed the breadth of human emotion experienced during the events of Holy Week. The Senior Choir was directed by Heidi Flower, who was accompanied by Amy Kelley, former chapel organist.
