Music at First Baptist Erwin is a thriving ministry with a rich heritage. Gifted musicians work with Children's choirs for those age four through elementary school. Some students in our youth group not only sing in the choir, but play a variety of instruments. The Sanctuary Choir is the primary choir for our worship services and prepares quarterly special music services.
Preston Holley conducts the Sanctuary Choir and is the primary planner for music in our worship services at First Baptist Erwin. An accomplished trumpeter, vocalist, and conductor, Mr. Holley has taught music for nearly 20 years and has conducted the Sanctuary Choir for over a decade. He holds a baccalaureate degree in Music Education from East Tennessee State University.
Elementary and pre-primary children are directed by Tyler Engle in the Boys' and Girls' Choir. The Boys' and Girls' Choir sings alongside the Sanctuary Choir in worship several times per year.
