Traditional Music and the Choirs at Knox

Cincinnati Magazine has cited the Knox Music Program as the “Best Church Music” in Cincinnati.


Knox Choir

Knox supports three choirs – Knox Choir (Adult), Children's Choir (grades 1-6), and Handbell Choir. Knox maintains splendid musical instruments that include a renovated and expanded 50-rank Holtkamp pipe organ, a concert grand Steinway piano, a Flemish harpsichord, a five-octave set of Schulmerich handbells and Continuo organ by Juget-Sinclair of Montreal, Canada. Through its vocal and instrumental resources Knox produces music for all Sunday, seasonal, and special worship services, Christmas pageants, children’s musicals, and community outreach programs on the Knox Music Series.
