Lewinsville Presbyterian Church has three choral/handbell programs for children in elementary grades and high school grades. All classes meet on Sunday afternoon and prepare the attendees for performances at worship services and a Christmas concert. Children and parents do not need to be members of the church to attend.
Junior Choristers/Junior Bells is for children in grades 1-3. Each rehearsal provides 30 minutes of beginning-level voice training with an emphasis on developing the fundamentals of singing and music theory. The class also provides a 30-minute beginner level handbell training with emphasis placed on developing the fundamentals of ringing and musical rhythm. This class meets on Sundays from 3:00-4:00 pm. Children’s Choir Specialist Evans Ayars leads the voice portion of the class and Handbell Director Kylie Johnson teaches bells.
The Lewinsville Choristers is a singing program for grades 4 through 12. The group learns repertoire appropriate for use in worship services while developing lifelong leadership and musical skills. The class meets on Sundays from 4:45-5:30 pm and is led by John Nothaft, Director of Music with assistance from Evan Ayars, Children’s Choir Specialist.
The Lewinsville Bells is a ringing program for grades 4 through 12. The class teaches handbell repertoire appropriate for use in worship services and also develops lifelong leadership and musical skills. This class meets on Sundays from 5:30-6:15 pm and is led by Handbell Director Kylie Johnson.
Many students in grades 4 through 12 attend both the singing and ringing classes on Sundays
