Our ensembles for children, youth and adults share the common vision to be a loving community of God that passionately and creatively pursues excellence in music and worship. We are blessed to have so many people with diverse musical backgrounds, united to create inspiring music to God’s glory. Music on Sunday mornings and at special worship services, concerts, and other programs throughout the year are open to all. People of all abilities and ages are welcome to participate in our musical groups, or help the ministry behind the scenes and in other ways. Click the Ensembles link below for more information.

Established in memory of the first full-time music director at Myers Park United Methodist Church, the Walter Herbert Ball Endowment Fund for Music provides funding for music programs of the church for which he labored so long and so faithfully. The Fund has been used to underwrite concerts and educational workshops with international clinicians and artists for our choirs and community. It has also provided funding for the commission of new sacred music, supported portions of the church’s Music at Myers Park Series, and subsidized the Chancel Choir’s tours to England, Austria, the Czech Republic, and New York City. All contributions remain as principal, with only the interest from contributions being spent.
