Music, sung and instrumental, enriches our worship and times of friendship.
While we are worshipping on Zoom, our music is pre-recorded and richly diverse. At Taizé, Lavon Page finds or creates music videos for listening and chanting. At 10:30 worship, we sing along with Chelsea Huber, Youth Choir Director, or The CUCC Band. Lyrics are included on screen and in the order of worship. Music to enrich the theme of the day comes from our music archive featuring the groups below, or is provided by Music Coordinator Doug Barrick.
The CUCC Band provides music once a month using the New Bluegrass Hymnal. Pick up instrumentalists join a core ensemble of guitars and violin. Bring your instrument or add your voice. They are currently practicing on the grounds, masked, and distanced. Contact Anne Moorman-Smith for their next practice date.
The Youth Choir provides music several times during the year. During Zoom season, they are offering Zoom composite anthems. Talk to Chelsea Huber to find out about the next project.
Our congregation is rich with vocal and instrumental soloists and small vocal groups, too. Our worship is enhanced by the talents of members of all ages. Talk to Doug Barrick to offer a recording of your musical gifts for Zoom worship.
We look forward to the return of two of our choirs when we are able to worship in the sanctuary. The Susie Allen Chancel Choir performs traditional church music during 10:30 worship at least twice each month. About twice annually the choir provides the sermon through a cantata or music with a special theme. The Children’s Sunday School Choir sings joyful songs about God’s love about four times a year. They practice with Miss Anne and Mr. Monty during Sunday School.
We know that many of you can really sing out when you want to. Our choirs welcome any and all closet and shower singers. Our choir directors have the skills to teach any and all to sing.
