Welcome to the Music Program here at UUFG!

Music is an important part of our Sunday service — it energizes us and unites us in worship. We are committed to providing excellent quality, exciting and diverse musical experiences that spiritually fulfill musician, congregation and community member alike.

Talented vocal and instrumental soloists and ensembles frequently perform at our services, especially on non-choir Sundays. Explore our pages, join us at one of our exciting rehearsals, come listen to one of our Concert Series programs, and contact our music director to become a part of the musical experience.

"And when Love speaks, the voices of all the gods make heaven drowsy with its harmony."
—William Shakespeare

Music Notes -- August 2016

altGreetings and welcome to the new musical season! The music department and choir have lots in store for this year and we have several big events planned throughout the year.

Our first big concert is LOVE - a concert of love songs and ballads featuring Thomas, myself and friends on August 27, 2016 at 7:30 in the Sanctuary. This season the music series will feature our own musicians as well as Anna Moo, Patchwork, the compositions of Thomas Royal, and the annual spring choir concert. In addition to the music series, the choir has planned some community outreach performances throughout the year as well including Gainesville PRIDE, caroling for the UUFG family and community, and many more! If you are interested in being involved in any way please feel free to contact me or just come up and say hi!

Here are some answers to the top 10 questions (?) about the music program:

Who are those two CRAZY good looking guys that lead the music every Sunday!?!
That would be Thomas and Tony. And yes they are quite dashing, aren't they! Also funny, smart, talented, and like long walks on short piers...

I've never been in choir before, can I come?
Absolutely!!! Come check it out! It might just be your new thing!

I don't know what part I sing...
We can figure that out!

You would rather have me as an audience member than a choir member...
NOT TRUE! At least come check it out! It might be your new thing!

I don't have time for anything else in my schedule...
While that might be true, there are big events in both the fall and spring where we could use extra voices! If you can, please plan on singing in these events!

What time are the rehearsals?
That's an EXCELLENT question. Rehearsals are Thursday Nights from 7-9 pm in the choir room. We also warm-up and rehearse Sunday mornings at 9:55 in the Sanctuary.

Does it cost anything?
No! It's free! Just a commitment of time and willingness to have fun! We also like to eat...

Food? What was this about food?
One of the many wonderful things about the choir is that we like to be well fed during our extra-curricular gatherings! Pot-luck style!

The music on Sunday mornings sounds hard sometimes? I don't know if I can do that...
We take plenty of time in rehearsal to make sure that the parts are well learned and sung in a healthy and musical way.

So, what you're saying is...I should come check out choir? It might be my new thing!?!
YES!!!! Thursdays from 7-9 pm in the Choir Room
