At United Methodist Church of West Chester, we have a tremendous music ministry for all ages and talents. These include the Chancel Choir (which sings at the 8:45 am Traditional Service), the Praise Team (which provides the music at the 11 am Contemporary Service) and the Carillon Choir (a handbell choir that performs monthly and during special events). Please contact Mike Muzzo with any questions or to learn more about the Adult Music Ministry.

The Chancel Choir of West Chester United Methodist Church carries with it a long tradition of choral singing and ministry. The choir sings a variety of musical styles centering around classical and traditional choral music.
