Things Music, Spring 2018

It’s been a thrilling experience this year to see the number of folks involved in our music program at UU of Spartanburg. Adult & children’s choirs have experienced growth as have ensembles and those interested in providing instrumental music– including our recently organized drumming group.

The Unitarian Universalist Association states a UU congregation is considered to have a healthy music program when 10% of the SundaymorningSunday mornings consistently connected with the music program.

Preparing service music requires time and a special commitment from all involved. A visit to the church campus during the week—morning, afternoon or evening may find music folks participating in rehearsals.

Our future looks bright!

With Gratitude,
