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.
July - August 2018 Music News
Beautiful music has not taken a vacation at UUSG this summer. This month, we’ve been treated to the dynamic mother-and-son duo of pianist Sandra Anderson-Cordogan and Alex Cordogan, including an exquisite violin and piano duet and rousing four-hand piano.
Intricate vocal harmonies were brought to us courtesy of the Montgomery Family, their latest terrific configuration featuring dad Andy along with Ellie and David, and John Rosenkrans at the keyboard.
The transformative power of music was at the heart of the most recent worship service and sermon, led by the Rev. Linda Slabon, joined by Toni Tollerud, retired music director of the UU Fellowship of DeKalb, and our own singer and pianist extraordinaire – Lynn Fisher McCanne. Among the many memorable songs was their a cappella trio.
Other musicians to look forward to in coming weeks include Angela Salvaggione.; vocalist Cynthia Spiegel and Tom Zimmerman; Geoff Pynn, Cynthia and Tracy Dullea; Thom Thomas and Dean Malambri.
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!
