Music at UPC

Music is central to the worship life of University Presbyterian Church, and music is intentionally chosen to support and reflect the sermon theme and texts of our services. There are so many opportunities for friends and members to become involved in music ministry.

Cathedral Choir 

Cathedral Choir rehearses on Thursdays, 7–9pm, September through May. It sings most Sundays during 8:30am worship, occasionally at 11:45am worship, and participates in one or two concerts a year.Read more here. To set up a membership interview, contact David.

Our Organ

Our Reuter pipe organ, Opus 2196, was completed in 1999 with a size and versatility unequaled in the greater Northwest region of the United States. This powerful and sensitive instrument meets the needs of leading worship through hymns, accompanying choirs and soloists, supports a wide range of organ literature and is visually exciting.
