Our current music ministry includes a 3-6 person volunteer choir at 8:30 and about 15 person Chancel Choir at the 11 AM service. We also have a bell choir, which has its own director, and performs approximately once/month.
FUMC-Casper values a strong tradition of music excellence anchored by our beautiful Casavant Freres Limitée pipe organ-- one of the finest in the area-- designed and constructed specifically for our sanctuary in 1977. See http://fumccasper.com/history/
