There are many opportunities for meaningful personal enrichment in service to UUCW.  Music is an excellent way for you to have fun, meet new people, feed your spirit, and participate in a vibrant, vital ministry to the church. Music at UUCW is all-inclusive. Everyone can participate as they see fit and there are many offerings to suit your schedule.

Adult Choir — The adult choir performs music encompassing a variety of styles, from classical to gospel and folk to jazz. Singers of all abilities are welcome! The ability to read music is not a prerequisite of membership. The adult choir rehearses weekly on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm and performs 2 times a month at Sunday services. The full Sunday schedule is available on the church website.
