Welcome to the East Texas hub for fine music.
Welcome to another season of fine music making at First Presbyterian Church of Tyler. FPC has long been a hub for the fine arts in East Texas, and the 2017-18 season is no exception. The lineup features internationally touring musicians and local all-stars, perennial favorites and bold new sounds, sacred masterpieces and beloved sing-along tunes. Designed to have a wide appeal to audiences with diverse musical tastes, this season will not disappoint.
Last year, over six thousand people came through our doors to hear a diversity of musical offerings—from Southern Gospel to Mozart and everything in between. This new season continues our goal to expand the concert series, offering high quality sacred and secular music to an ever-increasing audience of East Texans seeking an encounter with the divine through music. There's something to pique everyone's interest in Fine Arts at First Presbyterian Church.
