Music

organ and piano

The Austin Pipe Organ was custom built for Cherry Hill’s sanctuary by one of the oldest organ manufacturers in the U.S.  This organ has 43 ranks and more than 2,000 pipes.  According to church records, the organ was first played at Cherry Hill Presbyterian in 1959 and continues to be an excellent instrument for both performance and accompaniment.

In 2012, Cherry Hill acquired a rare Bosendorfer Imperial Concert Grand Piano to complement the church’s Austin pipe organ.  The Imperial Concert Grand Piano has 97 keys instead of the traditional 88 and is recognized as a musical instrument phenomenon, producing rich tones for ccongregational worship, concerts and recitals.

Instrumentalists, soloists and members of Cherry Hill with diverse musical talents  are invited to share their gifts with the congregation.

Our chancel choir sings at the Sunday Worship service from September through June. The handbell choir meets weekly for rehearsal and plays frequently for Sunday worship and other services. Those wishing to sing or ring with our choirs should contract the Director of Music and Organist through the church office.
