USE OF FACILITIES FOR OUTSIDE GROUPS
House of Prayer's sanctuary, with its wonderful acoustics, 6 rank pipe organ, 2 grand pianos and seating for 200, lends itself well to musical events such as concerts and recitals. Two community choral groups, the Broad Cove Chorale and the Unicorn Singers, rehearse weekly in the sanctuary Sept.-May and perform there several times a year. The South Shore Music Teachers Association holds several recitals in the space during the school year, as do some private studio music teachers, and groups like the Atlantic Symphony's smaller Chamber Music group and Concerto Competition, the Choral Art Society, Hingham High School chamber groups, and the Wheeler School Handbell Choir of RI have also held concerts here. Often concerts are followed by receptions held in HOP's Fellowship Hall, where a new floor has recently been installed. There is a full kitchen adjacent to the hall.
