Music and Choir
One can expect to find a great variety of music in a Unitarian Universalist congregation. At KUUF, the basis of our music is often our two UU hymnals, Singing the Living Tradition (the “gray hymnal”), which contains many traditional sounding hymns from a variety of traditions and sources, including familiar hymns and tunes re-purposed for UU congregations, and its supplement, Singing the Journey (the “teal hymnal”), which has a good number of more contemporary hymns from styles including African-American and Latino/a/x spirituals, Native American traditions, jazz, folk, and rock.
Other music during the service comes from a variety of different traditions and styles, including classical, jazz, folk, rock, and even hip hop. Much of the music is played by our pianist, while talented members and visitors frequently serve as guest musicians.
At KUUF, we take great pride in our choir. Lead by our professional choir director, the choir generally performs one to two times per month during our worship service. Like the rest of our music, choir pieces span a variety of traditions and styles, from traditional hymns to more contemporary pieces. Practice is on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am, prior to the worship service, in the conference room of BHK Child Development Center. New members of all singing abilities are always welcome in the choir!
