Joyful Noise Choir 

Our choir is open to all who love singing, we would love to have you join us. We meet every Thursday evening at 6:45 PM from September through June. Come and check out this unique ministry and fellowship with other believers who enjoy praising God through music. Director of Music, Ron Hilley leads the Joyful Noise Choir each Sunday morning. Throughout the year, Joyful Noise produces several concerts, both sacred and secular. During Advent, the choir brings the Christmas story to life through song. At the end of the choral season or sometimes in the fall, full-scale productions are performed for the congregation and the community. In the past, themes range from gospel and rock to Broadway and Disney. Joyful Noise is an energetic group who sing to the Glory of God!

About Our Organ

       In October, 1984, Lakeside Community Presbyterian Church installed a 13-rank pipe organ built by the San Diego Pipe Organ Company.   In the 1990’s under the direction of Blackinton and Associates, the church began the expansion and enlargement of the organ to include 18 ranks of wind-blown pipes.  (A “rank” is a set of pipes, usually numbering 56 pipes, one for each note of the keyboard.)         On Sunday,  April 18, 2010, the church dedicated a wonderful new instrument: a Rodgers Masterpiece Signature 356 Digital Imaging Organ with a three manual console with 56 stops, including a MX200 MIDI Sound Module (producing 100 orchestral sounds) was combined with our existing 18 ranks of wind-blown pipes giving the equivalent of over 200 ranks.   The electronic portion is voiced through 22 speakers embedded in the pipe chamber, as well as speakers in the choir loft and balcony.             The organ has been a wonderful addition to enhance our worship through solo pieces and accompanying our choir and congregational singing, as well as special concerts and presentations.   Every week we are amazed by an ever-changing array of sounds!   The addition of the Rodgers organ and speakers was made possible through a number of special gifts, including a major gift in honor of Pastor Bob Mentze’s 25th anniversary at the church, and his belief that “music magnifies the message”!    Soli Deo Gloria – to God alone be the glory!
