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, and hand bells, we are blessed with inspirational and joyful music each week. In addition, there are available opportunities for children and youth.

David Soyars, Pianist/Organist
Suzie Fisk, Hand Bells Director
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. On occasion, the choir invites an accomplished soloist who may be classically trained or perhaps a fine musician in the area of spiritual music. Instrumentalists also enhance the worship experience. Banner Elk Presbyterian has welcomed many special groups, such as the singers from Lees-McRae College and other institutions. Practices are at 7:30 pm on Thursday Nights and at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
Summer Special Music Series
During the summer months, we often feature a variety of special music by our talented members and visiting singers and musicians while our Adult Choir takes a break.
The hand bells 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 hand bell choir meets at 4:30 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.
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.
