Music Ministries

"Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals."

Psalm 150



Music is critical to the life of Otterbein. It's more than a worship complement--music is a way to praise God. Whether through song or instruments, music breathes life into our church community.

Everyone can be involved in music at Otterbein. Through our various choirs and musical opportunities, you are sure to find something that best suites you. Explore our music ministries to see what we offer.
