Music at Banner Elk Presbyterian Church

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, handbells, and guest 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. Meet our Choir Interns, students from Lees-McRae College.

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.

Men’s Ensemble

Our Men’s Ensemble sings during our summer early service at 8:30 AM and a few other special occasions. They sing a variety of traditional hymns, spirituals and more. To participate, it is not essential that you read music, but it helps.
