Nothing moves the heart and spirit like music. At First Unitarian Church, we are blessed by music, lifting us up individually while joining us in community. Whether congregational singing of familiar hymns, or choral and special music, selections are made to enhance the theme of the service. Special music of instrumental and vocal performances is offered by church volunteers and guest professional musicians.
This musically motivated group of adult handbell ringers join in making beautiful music. Bell Avenue Ringers rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. (August – May). Find out more by contacting Karen Kraemer, Choir Director, at kraemerkb(at)gmail(dot)com.
The UU Singers, our adult choir, performs once or twice each month. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings (August – May) at the church from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. All are welcome to join these musical experiences. Contact Karen Kraemer at kraemerkb(at)gmail(dot)com.
The Vocal Ensemble consists of 7-10 singers invited from the choir and the general congregation to perform occasionally throughout the year. Drawing on a variety of musical types and sources, including original arrangements, the Ensemble rehearses mostly on Thursdays preceding performance dates. Directed by Bruce Martin.
Bruce Martin, Pianist
The musical talents of First Unitarian member Bruce Martin are demonstrated whenever he is at the keyboard of the auditorium’s grand piano. His musical versatility surprises and delights all, whether he is accompanying congregational singing, joining in concert with frequent guest musical performers on stage, or in his virtuoso solo performances.
