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.
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.
October - NOvember 2018 Music News
As UUSG explores a reflective theme for October, services have been underscored with beautiful music, including a turn by the UUSG Choir. The skilled singers were led in inspiring selections by Cynthia Spiegel, including gorgeous piano accompaniment by Sandra Anderson.
Shining at the piano have been Lynn Fisher McCanne, Geoff Pynn and Angela Salvaggione, who brings her improvisational gifts to the forefront.
Looking ahead, we’ll be treated to the rousing talents of The Bluegrass Band featuring John Sandman, Jeff Teppema and Tracy Dullea; The RE Music Students led by Sandra; and The Jazz Combo with Michael Townley, Michael Bazan, Geoff and Tracy. Tracey McFadden will display his inventive flair, and we will welcome back pianist Robert Vanderschaaf.
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!
