Cherub Choir (for grades K and 1)
University UMC’s first choir experience. The choir rehearses weekly, Sundays from 5:15 to 6:00 p.m. Choristers learn to be part of a choir and develop their singing voices through engaging music and movement activities. Choristers learn that we show our love for God and build our Christian community through our songs. The Cherub Choir sings in worship services several times during the year, more during Advent and Christmas, and participates in the annual children’s choir musical each spring.
Jubilee Choir (for grades 2-5)
Builds on the music skills and worship leadership begun in the younger children’s choir. Jubilee Choir meets Sundays from 3:45 to 5:00 p.m. Vocal development and a beautiful unison sound are foundational to this choir. The choristers develop two-part singing skills and basic music theory through use of printed octavos and hymn books. Jubilee choristers recognize they are a vital part of worship leadership at University UMC, and that through their music God is glorified and God’s people are uplifted. The Jubilee Choir sings in worship service about once a month; additionally, the choir provides music on special holy days, such as Christmas Eve and Ash Wednesday. Each choir year concludes with a full-production musical, including choral and solo singing, acting, costumes and sets.
