Plymouth’s musical heritage dates from its humble beginnings in Yesler Hall to the current Sixth Avenue 5000 squ. ft., recently renovated contemporary Sanctuary and new Fisk organ.
Plymouth Chancel Choir, Soul Choir, Plymouth Ringers, Children's Chime Choir and brass ensembles regularly contribute to vital Sunday worship, with regional and national guest artists.
Plymouth music programming includes several major works performed with choirs and orchestra such as Handel's Messiah and Mozart Requiem. Sunday mornings often feature guest artists, stellar soloists and emerging youth talent.
A new CB Fisk was installed in March 2015.
