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.
Choir (Grade 9-adult), led by our Song Leader, Cynthia Spiegel
August - September 2019 Music News
Musical flourishes enhanced our wonderful poetry service, with vocalist and pianist Cynthia Spiegel guiding the congregation in a song round, and Elgin Symphony Orchestra musician Jason Niehoff on double bass in the rich service celebrating multiple arts.
Cynthia returned to lead the UU Hymn Sing service, with deft percussion from Dave Hanchette and gorgeous accompaniment by Ruth Cavanaugh on flute and Lynn Fisher McCanne on piano. A highlight was Cynthia performing the song “Sing,” featured in the children’s book of the same name by our own author-illustrator Tom Lichtenheld, who read the work aloud.
The exquisite interplay of cello and guitar by Kerena and Paul Moeller was a delight. And shining at the piano have been Sandra Anderson and Geoff Pynn.
Looking ahead, we’ll be treated to a joyful Homecoming Sunday with the high-energy return of The House Band. And sharing their keyboard artistry again in coming weeks will be Geoff, Lynn and Sandra.
Be a part of the joy of music – there is a place for you in our Music Ministry! Students, amateurs, professionals, adults and youth – please contact Music Director Tracy Dullea at email@example.com today.
