Music and Choir
Are you someone who likes to join in singing a rousing, toe-tapping congregational hymn or do you prefer to sit back and quietly reflect on a soft, meditative melody? Do you enjoy music that is classic and traditional, or selections that are newer and more contemporary? No matter your personal tastes, you’ll find something that’s just for you in the Music Program at All Souls.
- Our Music Program draws upon the wide and diverse world of musical and cultural traditions, including classical and traditional sacred music, gospel and spirituals, Latin music, traditional Jewish music, modern pop songs and Broadway tunes, and more.
- We strive to share music that will help create meaningful worship experiences on Sunday mornings, as well as share our UU values with the community through our Fine Arts concert series.
- Our Music Program is open and inclusive, welcoming all who would like to explore and share their musical and creative gifts. Opportunities for participation include joining the regular church choir, singing with the Intergenerational Choir, performing as a soloist or in an ensemble, or helping with the annual family-oriented Christmas Eve service.
All Souls Choir
The All Souls Choir sings a diverse repertoire, drawing from choral traditions of all kinds. Our singers’ versatility allows us to perform everything from Bach and Brahms to spirituals and gospel songs. We strive to be a diverse choir that sings to heal, encourage, and stimulate change while working toward a community and world that is more loving and just.
The All Souls Choir has open enrollment periods during the months of September and January. The Choir rehearses Sunday mornings from 8:30 – 10:00 and sings most first and third Sundays of the month, August through June. No audition is required, but ability to read music and handle a fast-paced learning environment is a plus! For more info, contact Greg Sanders firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guest Artist Series
As a part of our robust music program, we feature some of Indiana’s top-tier musicians playing music created and influenced by Black American music culture. From jazz to folk and everything in between, this music embodies the heart of the worship experience and uplifts the voices and experiences of a rich culture and legacy.
