Music and Worship Arts
Music is an integral part of life at First Universalist Church, both in Sunday morning services and other events throughout the church year. On any given Sunday, our worship service is blessed with all mediums of music making: the choir performing a piece by the phenomenal Eric Whitacre, the Universal Rock Band belting out a Billy Taylor number, singer songwriters such as Ellis, or Ann Reed, the Universal Jazz Band (sixteen members strong) doing a new arrangement of Eleanor Rigby. Under the direction of our professional staff, dozens of members and friends participate in choir, jazz band, instrumental ensembles that accompany the choir, or as soloists.
Guest artists occasionally perform with our various ensembles, and choir, to enhance our music making, and to reflect the vibrancy and diversity of the Twin Cities music scene, of which we are a part.
