UUCS Music

This will be our response to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully,
and more devotedly than ever before. — Leonard Bernstein

“May your life be as a song, resounding with the dawn to sing awake the light.”
—Jim Scott

We celebrate music’s joy and power to express the rich feelings of our hearts and support a vibrant worship experience here at UUCS. Our music program draws from an inclusive array of different musical traditions, styles, cultures and spiritual traditions.

Our choir is open to all who wish to explore their musical gifts under the able direction of Music Director Luke Stikeleather, who delights in helping each singer discover new talents. In the choir, we enjoy fun and fellowship while always learning and exploring.

Complementing our volunteer choir and musicians, through the year we also enjoy guest instrumentalists and vocalists from the wider community.

Our music program seeks to use your musical gifts to center, celebrate and uplift. In the words of Oliver Wendell Holmes –
“Alas for those that never sing but die with all their music in them.”
