MUSIC

Music at UUCH

Music is a very important part of our UUCH community life. Not only do we offer a variety of different styles and opportunities for music in our Sunday services, but there are several other ways we share our enjoyment of music throughout the year.

Music Projects

Each month during the church year, in conjunction with our monthly themes for our Sunday services, we have a Music Project. These projects provide opportunities for all musicians (singers and instrumentalists) to participate in a Sunday service, at different levels of skill. Everyone can join in. You simply need to choose the months that work for your schedule and level of commitment and come out for one or more rehearsals for those months.

Rehearsals for the Music Projects are Sunday mornings, usually at 9:45 am in the Worship Room. Exceptions are on the morning of the Music Project, we gather at 9:30 am. On the last Sunday of each month, we rehearse upstairs.

Music Projects from now until spring are on the following dates:

Sunday, February 7th

Sunday, March 6th

Sunday, April 10th

Sunday, May 8th

Sunday, June 12th

The Afterchoir

The Afterchoir (our folk/rock group) meets most Wednesdays, from approximately 4:45 to 6:15 pm. This group usually contributes their unique and vibrant style to the last service of each month. They also play at special occasions during the church year, such as our church picnic and coffeehouse.

Winter Warm-up Coffeehouse

Every February we host a lively evening of music, poetry, skits and comedy, offered by our talented members and special guests. It is a fabulous way to warm up the winter with entertainment, fellowship, refreshments, and good community fun. Our 2016 event is on Saturday, February 20th, from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. All are welcome; members, friends, family and visitors. There is a donation basket at the door, and we share potluck snacks.

Dinner Theatre

Last April 2015 ten enthusiastic members and friends presented two nights of Dinner Theatre as a fundraiser. It was a great success for participants, attendees and the church coffers. For 2016, a cast of 14-15 are excited to present 3 shows, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, May 12th, 13th, and 14th.

Stay up-to-date on all of the above through our Facebook page and/or our monthly newsletters.
