Music and singing are integral parts of UUCR worship services.
Music fills the soul.
We offer many opportunities for people to share their musical talents, from participating in choir to band to brass ensemble, if you have a talent, we’d love to make a joyful noise with you.
The Music Director coordinates our music ministry from September - June. The musicians of UUCR are a loving, welcoming, and inclusive group. Come join us!
UUCR Choir practices on Thursdays, from 7:30 to 9:00pm. Rehearsals begin in late September and run through the first week of June. No audition or formal choral experience is required, just a love of singing! The UUCR Choir sings a varied repertoire of music from traditional choral music, a'capella selecitions and classical pieces, to contemporary music featuring UU composers. We typically sing 2-3 times a month during Sunday service.
UUCR Ringers meet on a session basis and plays about four times a year from September - June. Reading music is helpful for ringing, but not required as we will teach you the basics! If you are interested in ringing with us, please contact Nichole for more information.
The UUCR "rock" Band is made up of musicians who provide music for our service one per month in a contemporary setting. Their music is always energizing and uplifting.
UUCR Brass Ensemble
The UUCR Brass Ensemble plays on a rotating schedule every other month. Basic music reading skills are required for participation. We typically play arrangements of traditional hymns.
