Coral Ridge Music exists to serve the mission of declaring and demonstrating the liberating power of the gospel chiefly through accompanying the worship of the church each Sunday. We are a diverse musical outlet for the artists on staff, in the congregation, and in the South Florida community who are connected in various ways to Coral Ridge.
Sunday Morning Music
Sunday morning worship is a vibrant and unified musical expression where we lead congregational singing with our voacalists, instrumentalists (organ, piano, guitars, bass, drums, occasional strings and horns), and worship choir.

Music, Albums, Charts
We have several recordings and musical resources available for download. Discover more about our music here.
The Coral Ridge Concert Series seeks to present beautiful music in a beautiful space to the people of south Florida. We believe that beauty expressed through music is necessary for the culture of our city to thrive and that as we reflect God’s grace and love toward humanity we can tangibly witness him “making all things new.”
The sanctuary of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church was designed not only as a house for worship but also as a venue for concerts. We cherish musicians and the range of music that reflects their styles, from classical to jazz to modern.

We love connecting with all kinds of musicians—singers, instrumentalists, and songwriters. Additionally, we are always looking for volunteer help with the technological side of our servie (sound, A/V, etc).
- Worship Choir - we invite all singers of all levels to jump into Sunday morning worship with our choir; one easy weekly rehearsal most Sundays at 9am in the Sanctuary.
- Vocalists - stronger vocalists are encouraged to audition to sing with our Sunday morning team of vocal worship leaders.
- Instrumentalists - we're continually adding instrumental musicians to our core team of Sunday morning leaders; contact us so we can hear more about your background and skills.
- Audio/Visual - we're looking for talented folks to aid our team with sound, lighting, and projection.
