We firmly believe in the power of music, art and creative performance to strengthen our community, to nourish the soul, and to see the world a bit differently.
We are building a dynamic chorale music program. Come sing with us!
First Universalist Singers
The First Universalist Singers is an un-auditioned choir of over 50 voices, performs twice a month during Sunday services in addition to occasional evening concerts. We rehearse weekly on Wednesdays at 7:15 p.m.
The Cantabile Chorale is a small, auditioned ensemble of 18 voices. Rehearsals are at 6:15pm on Wednesdays.
The Women’s Choir is a small ensemble of women that performs a few times throughout the year during Sunday services and rehearses as needed.
Featuring the Chalice Sparks and Flames
Open to all children grades K-3. We introduce each child to the interactive wonders of music through games, songs, and experiences. We have fun learning all the parts that make up music and deepen the desire to sing! The Chalice Sparks meet on Tuesdays from 5:30-6:00 p.m. and perform during services on the third Sunday of each month.
Open to all children grades 4-7. Our purpose is to continue developing the voice and to introduce children to melodic and percussive instruments. The Chalice Flames meet on Tuesdays from 6:00-6:30 p.m. and perform during services on the third Sunday of each month.
We encourage creative expression from the youngest to the oldest in our church. Each year, we offer a holiday musical on the third Sunday in December, and we also have other performance opportunities throughout the year.
Come as you are and join in the singing and chanting. No experience necessary.
4th Tuesdays of the month, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Singing Meditation is a quiet, simple way of praying for peace in our community and the world through song. This meditative candlelit service includes simple chants sung repeatedly; rich silence; short but profound readings; and guided prayers and meditations for peace. Most of us have experienced the wonder and magic when a great choir performs great music. The musical experience comforts igniting our spirits and awakening our emotions.
First Universalist Concert Series
The First Universalist Concert Series has been entertaining our congregation and the larger community for almost 20 years.
Featuring some of the most talented local and international musicians around, the concerts in the 2018-2019 series are certain to awe and inspire. Please look back soon for a listing of concerts coming up next season.
