Plymouth’s musical heritage dates from its humble beginnings in Pioneer Square's Yesler Hall to the current Sixth Avenue 5000 squ. ft., recently renovated contemporary Sanctuary and new Fisk organ, installed in March 2015.


Choirs and Music Ensembles

Plymouth Chancel Choir, Soul Choir, Plymouth Ringers, orchestral and brass ensembles regularly contribute to vital Sunday worship, with regional and national guest artists, stellar soloists and emerging youth talent. Plymouth Sanctuary is in high demand by groups such as Northwest Boychoir and other groups who rent our space for concerts.

Plymouth music programming includes several major works performed with choirs and orchestra such as Handel's Messiah and Mozart Requiem

Choral Arts Northwest currently is Plymouth's choral group in-residence. They perform multiple concerts throughout the year at Plymouth.

Plymouth is also a popular, weekly rehearsal space for well known groups such as Seattle Men's & Women's Chorus. Path with Art singers, a group comprised of individuals currently or recently experiencing homelessness, practice weekly in Plymouth's Hildebrand Hall.

Visual Art

Visual Art exhibitions at Plymouth integrate worship experiences and community connections. Plymouth's Hildebrand Hall offers a divine venue for commissioned, juried and traveling exhibits as well as community art invitationals.

Currently, (through Sept 2018) Photographer Bob Turner is showing landscape photographs on the theme: Darkness & Light. Take a look! Turner is donating 50% of all sales to Plymouth scholarships. Read more HERE
