Long-time church music director and educator Dr. Tom Hammett will serve as guest director of First Presbyterian Church Men's Chorus this Sunday.  The special occasion results from many women in the church attending the Women's Retreat over the weekend and the men stepping up to musical leadership in the 11 a.m. service.   

Officials said, "Dr. Hammett said he is excited to direct such an outstanding ensemble of men whose boisterous energy and enveloping choral richness offer a unique sound for deeply authentic worship.  He will also sing the solo offertory in the 8:30 a.m. service and lead congregational hymn singing.

"This ministry follows a long tradition of high-quality music as led for many years by Glenn Draper, and presently by Kelly Luther Stultz."

The historic church is located at 535 McCallie Ave., near UTC.
