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 2019-20 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.


Keep the Music Alive

Over the years, your generosity and commitment have sustained Fine Arts at FPC as a vibrant space for the arts in East Texas. While most concerts are offered free of charge, none of them are without expense. Hosting guest artists, maintaining this beautiful space, coordinating Artist in Residence, getting the word out - all of these efforts require resources. Consider what these offerings have meant to you - from a musical, cultural or spiritual standpoint - and consider making a gift today. Your contributions help this series continue to flourish as a living tradition of fine music-making. To make a donation, contact Weston Jennings, director of music & organist.
