Bethel's Music

The Chancel Choir is accompanied by two major instruments: a  pipe organ (1997), and grand piano. In addition, the music program is blessed with solo performances on the trumpet, clarinet, harp and flute. Throughout the year, Bethel enjoys Sunday morning offerings from our Bell Choir.  Summer is our time for special music which often features solos and guest performers.  Bethel's style of music is traditional; however, the many talents of our gifted members allow for variety.
