We’re Making A Joyful Noise! Music is an important part of our worship at Banner Elk Presbyterian. With an outstanding choir, men’s chorus, grand piano, pipe organ, hand bells, and soloists, we are blessed with inspirational and joyful music each week. In addition, there are available opportunities for children and youth.

Adult Choir

In addition to beautifully rendered music in worship, the choir also presents several special music programs each year, particularly during the Christmas and Easter seasons. Practices are at 6:30 PM on Thursdays and at 10:30 AM on Sunday mornings.

Children’s Choir

Our children are taught by Nina Allbert in vocals, percussion and more. They participate in Sunday worship several times throughout the year.


The handbells are an integral part to our music program for many special occasions such as Christmas and Easter, and sometimes they simply enhance the worship experience. The handbell choir meets at 4 pm on Wednesdays. See Suzie Fisk for details!

Organ and Piano

Our pipe organ is a joy, supplementing the sounds of the choir and the congregation. This masterfully built instrument has just recently been expanded with more ranks and chimes. In addition, the music in the church is enhanced with a grand piano.
