First Presbyterian Church enjoys the rich talents of music in the congregation.
From members of the Dallas and Fort Worth symphonies to amateur players with high school and college experience, members volunteer their time and talent.
Four endowed special funds provide financial support for the services of professional instrumentalists. The church enjoys the use of a five-octave set of Malmark handbells, a three-octave set of Petit and Fritsen Dutch handbells, a full Orff Instrumentarium, as well as an extensive collection of percussion equipment including timpani and a trap-set, assorted Latin and African percussion instruments.
