FUUSN Musicians Annual Concert

Sunday February 10, 2019, 3:00pm in the FUUSN Sanctuary.

Cookies at intermission! Reception to follow!

Snow date: 2/17/19

Come and hear the wonderful musicians of the First Unitarian Universalist Society in concert on Sunday, February 10, 3pm in the FUUSN Sanctuary. This year’s concert is a fundraiser for the UU Urban Ministry. You’ll hear renowned pianist Lois Shapiro, professional saxophonist and composer Geoff Wadsworth, and our intrepid FUUSN Band (with new bandmates Dexter Wadsworth and Aidan Devine!). There will be a fantastic array of musical styles and moods: classical works, traditional fiddle tunes, original jazz and rock compositions, and more. We’ll continue our new tradition of Cookies at Intermission!, and there will be a reception following the concert.

The concert is free and open to the public. Donations will be gratefully accepted for the UU Urban Ministry (www.uuum.org).

Music Program Overview

In addition to our very active Sanctuary Choir, several FUUSN ensembles have sprung from congregational impetus: the FUUSN Band, CreationDance, and the FUUSN Intergenerational Chamber Orchestra. The music budget includes monies for orchestras to accompany the choir on Music Sundays, and for occasional guest artists, which have included drummers from Mali, professional Baroque trumpet players, and Klezmer musicians.

2018-2019 has kept FUUSN musicians busy. We sang the Fauré Requiem at First Parish Church in Arlington, MA and at FUUSN; we performed John Kramer’s Immigrant Experience in Concord as part of a benefit concert for BIJAN (pronounced like “beyond”), the Boston Immigrant Justice Accompaniment Network, and sang it again at FUUSN (benefitting the Newton Brookline Asylum Resettlement Committee). In February we will host a benefit concert for the UU Urban Ministry; and on April 28 we’ll participate in the Communities Without Borders benefit concert.
