We call ourselves a musical congregation, and it’s true! There’s a music expression to “develop a wide bench” that literally means there’s room for more than one person on the piano bench. Figuratively, that boils down to building diversity through tapping the music talent all around us. That’s how we build and maintain a musical community. 

We have something brand new in March on Friday the 24th.  Three of our talented choristers have joined forces to start a “Song Circle.”  Bet Giddings and Andrea & Ed Priest are launching this monthly gathering that brings a new musical element open to all, young and old, experienced and not so much so.  In fact, you can come and just listen! Read more about it in the March Newsletter and subsequent Updates.  Mark your calendars and come check it out on Friday evening, March 24.

Heads up for our annual JAZZ SUNDAY on April 2, featuring Jeannie Gagné and Stan Strickland. For the first time in three years, they will be with us LIVE, presenting a Sunday worship experience jam-packed with jazz music, readings, and reflections. Jeannie and Stan are both professors at Berklee College of Music, and Jeannie is our former music director at UU Middleboro.
