Tabernacle's Symphony of Praise Orchestra is an inter-denominational (volunteer) orchestral extension of Tabernacle's ministry. Our specific mission is:

  1. To reclaim music for God's glory by providing high quality, Christ honoring music to the community
  2. To reach both believers and non-believers
  3. To provide an outlet of worship, expression & fellowship with musicians who are committed to God.


The Symphony of Praise Orchestra is unique among area orchestras in that their mission includes both Christian music as well as light classical, and their players and staff span dozens of churches and denominations. Musicians of the SOP come together under a common banner of Christ to express the skills, worship and glory that He has placed in each of them.
