Choir is open to all who love to sing. We have fun and when we sing, we communicate this joy to the rest of the Fellowship.

The songs we sing reflect our seven principles. Our songs reinforce our values. We sing about social justice, caring for each other and our planet, acknowledging that everybody has value, and promoting world peace.

Will Whitehead invites you to join the MUUF Choir! Sing beautiful music with your friends, enhance the experience of our services, and learn to read some music to boot!  No prior experience necessary – all welcome – MEN ARE NEEDED!
Rehearsals are every Sunday 8:30-10:00 am from October to May. Performances are the 1st and 3rd Sundays, beginning November.  However, joyful singing happens all year !

Join us on Sundays at 8:30 am, no appointment necessary. We welcome all singers ~ tenors and baritones especially! If you love to sing, consider joining us in October.  It’s fun and good for the body and soul. Studies show that choral singing improves our mood, with a decrease in stress, depression and anxiety. Give it a try!
