Music is a vibrant and important element of our services. Visitors may recognize some familiar tunes and words, but will also hear a reflection of our diversity and our respect for many traditions.

Honoring Many Traditions

Most services feature hymns from Singing the Living Tradition and Singing the Journey, the hymnal and supplement used by many Unitarian Universalist congregations. Both include hymns from many different faith traditions.

Guest instrumentalists, vocalists, and choirs — from klezmer bands to gospel singers to classically trained soloists  — are often invited to enhance our worship together.

Adding Your Voice to the Choir

The choir is always welcoming to new members and to those who just want to come and sing for a bit. There are no auditions, weeknight rehearsals, or commitments! If you want to give us a try, please email Kristen at music@uusmc.org or attend any rehearsal.
