Music is an important part of the ministry at University Presbyterian Church.
The Chancel Choir is directed by John P. Novak and sings at the 11:00 Worship Service on Sunday mornings from September through May. Rehearsals are regularly held Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the choir room and at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays in the sanctuary. If you are interested in joining the choir please contact John or any choir member.
The Kegg Pipe Organ in the sanctuary was installed in 2001. This organ enjoys a fine room with almost three seconds of reverberation. The Great speaks with authority and the complete Swell chorus is the perfect foil for it, being of different character and equal volume. The very effective swell boxes, for which Kegg is known, allow complete control of the fiery full Swell. This organ has been proclaimed a significant recital instrument by Dr. David Fuller, retired from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Of special note in the specification is the Solo Diapason III. This stop, unique to Kegg instruments, is an Ensemble Stop. It draws the Great Principal 8', the Pedal Principal 8' and the Great Octave playing at 8', providing a rich triple 8' Diapason line. It is very useful in solo passages and for romantic literature where a large velvet 8' line is required.
