Musical Instruments

Bethesda has a nice Cassavant pipe organ, which provides a solid foundation for strong congregational singing. The organ also supports the choir and is frequently heard in combination with various solo instruments or chamber ensembles.

Our Baldwin grand piano was recently revoiced and has a gentle and beautiful tone suited both to accompanying and to solo and chamber music. The piano is used for classical and jazzy pieces in worship and provides nice variety in our annual hymn festivals and various music series programs.

Bethesda purchased a one-manual Dutch-style harpsichord in 2011. We love Baroque music and use the instrument both for the Bach cantatas on Reformation Sunday and for various services and programs featuring solo and chamber music.
