The Music at Foothills is a vital part of our community. We strive to enrich through song, rhythm and harmony, deepening our spiritual experiences. Led by a professional staff alongside dedicated volunteers and energized people, our goal is to reach all through music.
The Music Program offers many diverse participatory experiences. We welcome all who wish to get involved to join in the music making and let their inner voices sing. If you have any questions or would like to get involved in the program, please contact Chris Reed at email@example.com.
The Music Committee of the Foothills Unitarian Church strives for a vibrant and engaging music program which enhances the church’s music ministry by increasing participation, improving worship services and improving communication among congregants, music committee and church staff.
Ongoing Musical Groups
Adult Choir– Adult Choir – Our wonderful adult choir meets each Wednesday evening, 7:30-9:15 in the sanctuary. We are an unauditioned group of singers, and generally perform twice monthly for Sunday services. We begin rehearsals in late August and our season closes in late May. We perform a variety of music, including spirituals, classical, pop, jazz, contemporary, world and chant.
Madrigal Choir– An octet of select singers that perform Madrigals, as well as some contemporary music. This group performs generally 2-3 times per year for Foothills, including occasional vespers services. Led by Doug Simons.
Youth Music – Music is an important component of a spiritual life. All children enrolled in the Religious Education Program at Foothills Unitarian Church learn a variety of fun, age-appropriate music as part of their worship time on Sunday mornings. Parents and other adults will have the opportunity to learn the same songs during our multigenerational (All-Church) Sunday services. Our RE Music Assistant, Kara Shobe, brings a wealth of musical experience to our children and families. There are also opportunities to get involved in Holiday Choirs.
Other Groups / Special Musicians
Foothills strives to welcome many musicians to the stage each year. We love to have a variety of performers add to our services and look forward to having new artists share their gifts. If you are interested/know of someone who would like to perform, please contact us.
