UPDATE on MINISTER of MUSIC SEARCH

GOOD NEWS--the search has ended, and a minister of music has been selected. We happily announce that Tyler Canonico has accepted the position of Minister of Music. The APRIL newsletter has a feature article on Tyler where you can read about his background and training.

We eagerly anticipate his ministry at Market Square Presbyterian Church. Expect him to arrive in late summer.


Our Interim Minister of Music

Ellen Hunt began serving as Interim Minister of Music on September 1. 2016, and will continue until the new Minister of Music is on scene and settled in.  She has ably led the choir and congregation in her ministry of music.

We are fortunate to have someone with Ellen's talent and dedication. Thankfully, she will continue to worship with us, as she is a long-time member at Market Square.

No one was better suited to lead our ministry of music through this interim journey.  In recent years she has served as the interim musician for the Mechanicsburg, Pine Street, and Camp Hill Presbyterian congregations. Market Square is indeed fortunate to have her with us during this transition.

Having served at Market Square as a deacon and an elder, her commitment and leadership to the Lord and to this congregation are abiding and deep.


MUSIC and WORSHIP at MSPC

Market Square has a long history of excellence in its worship and music programs.  Sunday services are marked by sensitivity to the interrelationship of scripture, preaching, prayer and music. 

Our sanctuary is blessed with three of the finest keyboard instruments in the region.  The Aeolian-Skinner/ Moller pipe organ contains 5,000 pipes and fills the sanctuary with sound from its advantageous position in the choir loft.  The sanctuary piano is a restored Steinway concert grand.  A Hubbard single-manual harpsichord completes the keyboard collection.

Our sanctuary is a regular venue for many musical events, including the Market Square Concerts featuring some of the nation’s leading chamber music ensembles.
