Works in Progress Music Group | TOP

Calling all UUCC classical musicians! Could you use some motivation to tackle new repertoire? Would you like a small, supportive audience for that sonata movement that’s almost up to tempo? Would you like to hear what some fellow musicians are practicing? If you answered yes to one or more questions, this group is for you. The initial gathering will take place in the Sanctuary at 11:30, Sunday, March 27. Each participant is welcome to perform a short piece, no more than 10 minutes in length. Then we’ll discuss next steps and schedule future sessions. At first, the group will be limited to pianists and string players until masking requirements end.  We eagerly await the time when wind players can join. Please contact Jonathan Corey, music@uuccglenallen.org.

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 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: | TOP

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, Music Director by email: music@uuccglenallen.org

UUCC Ringers: | TOP

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, Music Director by email: music@uuccglenallen.org

Hymn Jammers: | TOP

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, Music Director by email: music@uuccglenallen.org

Recorder Ensemble: | TOP

The recorder ensemble practices every Tuesday at 2:00 in the UUCC sanctuary.  They welcome players at any level.  For more information, please e-mail music@ucccglenallen.org.

The music program is always interested in adding new participants as well as hearing new ideas.  Please e-mail music@ucccglenallen.org to add your voice!
