Music is an integral part of worship here at UUCE. We believe that music brings people together, and we strive to foster a sense of community through our music ensembles and programming.
The music programs at UUCE are managed by our Music Director, Chelsea Musson. Each week, she works with the worship leader to choose music that will enrich the service, involving our weekly musicians, the vocal choir, and the handbell choir. Learn about our twice-annual Music Sunday on our Traditions page.
UUCE’s core musician team for regular Worship is made up of Chelsea Musson on vocals, and Caleb Willitz on piano.
We often enjoy the participation of volunteer instrumentalists and singers from the congregation, and on occasion professional musicians from outside the congregation to participate in our worship services.
Always learning and growing, UUCE’s choir has existed in some form for over 10 years.
Prairie Voices is dedicated to preparing engaging music for services several times a year, even while we’re remote.
Weekly rehearsals are held over Zoom on Thursday evenings. If you’re interested in joining, contact Chelsea Musson.
Under the direction of Chelsea Musson, the Unichords work together to create beautiful music for the church on a semi-regular basis.
Rehearsals are currently suspended while the church building is closed. We’ll joyfully resume rehearsals again once it’s safe to do so!
