Music is an integral part of the rich history of CCSM. Through our music we explore beauty, wonder, sadness, joy, and the many other mysteries of life, together.
Our Chancel Choir is made up of volunteer singers under the dynamic leadership of our Interim Director of Music, Lynnelle Bilsey. The choir performs a wide selection of music and offers special musical presentations as part of our morning worship.
In addition to enhancing our worship services, our choir, along with accompanying instrumentalists, offers outstanding musical events each year, including a Christmas Concert and a Spring Concert.
Learn all about our vibrant Chancel, Carillon Bell and Youth Choirs.
CCSM houses our extraordinary Casavant organ, which is considered to be one of the best-crafted organs in California – artistically, musically, mechanically and architecturally. Visitors have many opportunities to hear this magnificent instrument throughout the year in worship and during special concerts. Also, each week our Organist in Residence presents a postlude on Sundays after our 10:30 am worship.
Concert Series and Special Music Events
A great community deserves great music! We offer concert series and special music events throughout the year, bringing the beauty and skill of high quality classical music performances to the San Francisco Peninsula.
