WPC is blessed with a rich heritage in sacred classical music. “Song is a response which engages the whole self in prayer,” states our Book of Order. Indeed, prayerful reflection and joyful expression are at the core of our music program. WPC’s music encompasses traditional hymns, anthems, and spirituals sung by the congregation and the Chancel Choir. Among the beautiful traditions of WPC are the processionals, introits, and sung responses of the Chancel Choir or Chamber Singers. Often, the Westwood Brass Ensemble, Westwood Chamber Orchestra, or members of the congregation will add to the festive service with instrumental music.
WPC’s youth and children’s choirs perform regularly during the year providing young people with the opportunity to sing God’s praises. Full youth musicals—featuring original and new compositions—and the annual Christmas Pageant are high points for families in the WPC year.
