Members of all ages can be an active part of our music ministry! There are 3 ways to participate:
Worship Service Music (all ages)
Our Music Ministry and musicians are an integral part of weekly worship services. Most weekends, someone from the congregation volunteers to sing or play an instrument. More than 40 adults and 30 youth stepped up to present music to the congregation over the course of last year alone. Children, youth, and adults of all abilities are welcome and encouraged to share their gifts. Please contact our Music Director, Tracy Dullea, if you and/or your child are interested in performing during a service or other UUSG event.
Religious Education Music Program (PreK-Grade 5)
This musical component to religious education gives our children the opportunity to learn Unitarian Universalist songs created especially for young people. Each week, before going to classrooms, students will spend 5-10 minutes in the Common Room to learn and sing songs together. Lyrics and melodies will be sent home so young people can sing the songs with their family. Then, twice during the year, the songs will be shared with the congregation during the "For All Ages" segment of the worship service. This program is taught by Sandra Anderson-Cordogan.
Choir (Grade 9-adult)
This year, the choir will perform a total of four times. We are trying a new day and time for rehearsals: 7:00-8:30pm, 2-3 Wednesdays before a performance weekend. Teen youth and adults are welcome to sing for one or all weekends. Sign up here or contact Cynthia Spiegel for questions.
April - May 2018 Music News
Our musical offerings warmed a chilly April capped last Sunday by the final church year appearance of the powerful UUSG Choir led by Cynthia Spiegel. We also enjoyed the lovely clarinet playing of one of our Junior High youth, Ben Budke; moving vocals, guitar and keyboard from Tom Zimmerman; and talented turns at the piano by Sandra Anderson-Cordogan and Lynn Fisher McCanne.
Looking ahead, we’ll be treated to the beautiful vocals of Cynthia Spiegel and the UUSG Jazz Combo featuring Michael Townley, Tracy Dullea, Geoff Pynn, Jeff Teppema and Nate Thomas; the stirring harmonies of the FUUsion choral group; and a wonderful collaborative event from Angela Salvagionne, Cynthia Spiegel, Elena Spiegel, Tracy Dullea, and Ruth Cavanaugh.
Be a part of the joy of music – there is a place for you in our Music Ministry! Students, amateurs, professionals, adults & youth. Please contact Music Director Tracy Dullea at firstname.lastname@example.org today!
