Riverside Presbyterian Church has a long history of musical excellence. RPC’s 3-manual pipe organ dates from 1904. Handel’s Messiah is a Christmas tradition featuring the Riverside Festival Chorus, local soloists and orchestra. The Chorus has also sung Vivaldi’s Gloria, Rutter’s Requiem, and Schubert’s Mass in G. The Chancel Choir meets weekly during the school year and provides vocal musical opportunities in styles ranging from classical to contemporary. View the 2018 Video of Handel's Messiah
