High schoolers encouraged to join the Community Chorale. This intergenerational ensemble (Grade 9-Adult) performs challenging choral music during UUCF worship services. Repertoire ranges from mouth music to Bach, Meredith Monk and Thomas Tallis. Serving in regular ministry to our congregation and its worship experience, each singer serves as an important presence in our worship throughout the year. Singing every 2 weeks or so, this group also participates in major choral events within each calendar year that often feature collaboration with outside organizations and congregations.
