J.O. Patterson Fine Arts Memorial Orchestra

It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD”  I Corinthians 5:13 KJV

Our Vision

First and foremost, we want to see the musicians in the Church saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost.  
We will also seek to motivate and promote the organizing of quality Orchestras in every Jurisdiction (including many Districts and local churches) throughout the length and breadth of the Church of God in Christ.  With God’s help, we envision building the largest qualitative orchestral conglomeration in the history of Church of God in Christ.

Our Commitment

  • To provide an atmosphere conducive to worship and the glory of God through the playing of anointed music.
  • To inspire and instill a sincere desire for outstanding achievements in the area of instrumental and orchestral music both through arduous study and anointed performances.
  • To be role models.
  • To be a tangible benefit.
  • To broaden the exposure of the Church of God in Christ Instrumental and Orchestral membership.
  • To provide new avenues of opportunity to the musicians of our Church.
