Music Program

Choir

UUCA Choir

The UUCA Choir is a talented group of singers who perform a wide variety of choral music in four-part harmony (soprano/alto/tenor/bass). Many are experienced choristers; some are music professionals and some are talented amateurs. All are dedicated music lovers who enjoy working, singing and socializing together. New members are always welcome! Sight-reading is a plus, but not critical. A pleasant voice, a good ear and a positive attitude are the primary requirements for membership.

The Choir shares its talents at both services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and at special services. Regular rehearsals are held every Thursday from 7:00-8:30pm from late August until early June.

Multigenerational Choir

This choir sings at multigenerational services throughout the year. Rehearsals occur once or twice a month on Wednesday evenings, 6:30-7:15pm (please see The Wednesday Thing schedule in the Weekly eNews) and at 8:45am on the Sundays when this choir sings. No audition is necessary. The music is usually sung in unison or as a round. Children age eight and older are welcome, as are teens and adults of any age.

Participation in the Multigenerational Choir can be for all appearances or for only those services allowed by personal schedules, making this a very flexible way to participate in the UUCA Music Program.

Guest Artists

At least twice a month we engage professional musicians to perform in our services. These guest artists provide a wide variety of music, including classical, jazz, pop/folk, musical theater, gospel, and world music. Some of our guest musicians are local artists and some are traveling through to perform at local venues as well as at UUCA. Any professional musicians who are interested in performing in our services should contact our Music Director at music@uuasheville.org.
