Music has always been woven into the spirit of UUCC.  The music program strives to energize and complement the message of each Sunday worship service.  Music is provided by the UUCC Choir, the UUCC Ringers, the Hymn Jammers, soloists within the UUCC community, as well as by Jonathan Corey, the Interim Music Director and a classically-trained pianist.

Regularly occurring musical ensembles at UUCC help to strengthen the community outside of Sunday services.  The following groups are currently welcoming new participants:

 

UUCC Choir:

Our mixed voice choir rehearses weekly from 7:30-9 on Thursday nights in the sanctuary.  We sing once or twice a month at Sunday services.  No audition is required, but the ability to read music and sing harmony is a plus.  Currently there are 35 members, so weekly attendance is encouraged but not required.  For more information, please contact Jonathan Corey, Interim Music Director by email: music@uuccglenallen.org

 

UUCC Ringers:

UUCC Ringers are an ensemble that uses the church’s 2 octave set of Schulmerich handbells.  The ensemble currently meets once a month and contributes to the Sunday services on special occasions.  No audition is required and the ensemble is very friendly to newcomers!  For more information, please contact Jonathan Corey, Interim Music Director by email: music@uuccglenallen.org

 

Hymn Jammers:

This ensemble meets once a month from 6-7:15 on Thursday nights in the sanctuary.  The Hymn Jammers accompany hymns during the Contemporary service format which occurs once a month on Sunday mornings.  The Hymn Jammers include guitars, flutes, trumpets, recorders, and a concertina.  No audition is required and the ensemble is open for any and all instrumentalists.  If interested, please contact Jonathan Corey, Interim Music Director by email: music@uuccglenallen.org

 

Recorder Ensemble:

The recorder ensemble practices every Tuesday at 2:00 in the UUCC sanctuary.  They welcome players at any level.  For more information, please contact Deb Downing by e-mail at debdowning47@gmail.com
