Music & Arts

“Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life, bringing peace, abolishing strife.”
–Khalil Gibran

The music program at UUCA has a history of excellence, and is an integral part of the faith community. We offer the following opportunities for members and non-members to develop and share their musical gifts.  

 

VOCAL OPPORTUNITIES

UUCA Choir

The UUCA Choir sings for Sunday services twice each month from September through May. The choir sings in harmony, and explores music from a wide variety of styles, cultures, and theological perspectives. In addition to singing for services, the choir sings for retirement communities and participates in UU choral festivals.  Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:00 PM in the sanctuary.  Contact: Len Langrick; llangrick@uuannapolis.org.

Spirit Singers

Open to all musicians.  Led by co-directors Betsy Kraning and Josh Long, this group provides diverse, intergenerational, multicultural music for worship services at UUCA and events in the community.  Rehearsals are once a month on Friday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. Contact: Betsy Kraning; bkraning@uuannapolis.org or Josh Long; jlong@uuannapolis.org.

Threshold Singers

The goal of the Threshold Singers is to bring ease and comfort to those at the threshold of life and death. We sing for patients in facilities or at home. Singers participate as they are able, and there is no regularly required commitment to participate.  To participate as a singer or to request the services of Threshold Singers, contact Len Langrick; llangrick@uuannapolis.org.

Children’s Choir/Intergenerational Choir

Open to all children and adults.  Limited rehearsals to provide music for special worship services. Contact: Betsy Kraning; bkraning@uuannapolis.org.

 

INSTRUMENTAL OPPORTUNITIES

Instrumentalists

Instrumentalists regularly share their gifts at UUCA. In addition to participating as a soloist, instrumentalists may accompany a choir, participate in the UUCA Philharmonic or annual Stone Soup program. Contact: Betsy Kraning; bkraning@uuannapolis.org.

Handbells

The sounds of handbells occasionally enhance services at UUCA.  Musicians with basic music reading skills may participate.  Performances are programmed around the availability of players. Contact: Len Langrick; llangrick@uuannapolis.org.

UUCA Community Drum Circle

We are a welcoming drum circle open to those ages 16 and older who wish to connect with others in a spiritual, meditative and visceral way. No experience necessary.  Bring your own drum or use one of ours. Meets 2nd Monday and 4th Tuesday 7:30-9:30 pm in the Sanctuary. Contact: Chris Larragoite; molson2002@verizon.net.
