Music Newsletter: April 2022

A lot is going on with music this spring ūüéČ

From the choir’s first in-person performance at a service in two years to the next phase of our Music Director search, check out five things to know about Music Ministry below.
1. Join the General Assembly choir! 

General Assembly (GA) is the Unitarian Universalists’ annual gathering, which thousands attend onsite or online. Each year the UUA president selects a minister to lead the culminating worship service held on Sunday morning, and Rev. Gretchen was chosen to lead in 2022! Rev. Sean will lead with her.

During that Sunday service to be led by Revs. Gretchen and Sean, Unitarian Universalists from around the world will join a collective body the size of which is unmatched throughout the year, and the GA choir will perform.

General Assembly 2022 will be held in Portland, Oregon June 22-26.

Learn more about joining the GA virtual and in-person choirs!

Scholarships are available for attending GA! Reach out to Rev. Gretchen at gretchen@foothillsuu.org to learn more.
 
2. The Music Director search is moving forward!

The Music Search Team met with members of the Racial Justice and Healing Ministry Core Team to discuss antiracism in hiring. Both teams engaged in outreach during the final weeks of the search to ensure all who might be interested and are qualified to apply within the broad Unitarian Universalist community were aware of the opening. The application deadline was Monday, April 11, at midnight, and the Music Search Team will meet tonight, April 13, to review applications! 
 
3. See the choir at Easter!

We are joyful that the choir will perform at both the 8:30 and 10 AM in-person Easter services this Sunday, April 17th! This is the first time the choir has performed at an in-person service in two years so save your spot to witness the music (and jubilant, non-traditional Easter message with a queer spin celebration led by Rev. Sean)!
 
4. Share your musical gifts!
