Bell Choir

With 15 ringers under the direction of Dr. Mille Beane, the Carter Memorial Bell Choir is one of the largest sacred bell choirs in New England. With a 5 octave set of Schulmerich handbells and melody chimes, the bell choir shares God's gift of music as part of the worship services at Carter once a month.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir at Carter Memorial is an integral part of the worship experience. Performing a wide repertoire of music from baroque to modern in a variety of styles from classical to spirituals and contemporary, the Chance Choir offers something for everyone. Under the direction of Dr. Millie Beane and accompanied by Aaron Rosenthal, the choir boasts 35 singers. The choir has recorded three CD's in recent years which are available for purchase or on loan in the church library.

Also, each December, the Chancel Choir presents a Messiah Sing-a-long with a 15 piece orchestra.  

PS. 96 Praise Band

PS. 96 is named for Psalm 96 which says "Sing to the Lord a new song!" and shares contemporary and gospel music. With keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and vocalists, the group is a unique blend of talents, all joined to bring praise to God. While much of the music is very standard praise band repertoire, the group also adds less traditional instruments to the band, like a cello, to the mix to offer a new spin on new music.
