Music Sunday: Dec. 9, 2018, 10:15am

The first Music Sunday of the year will be on December 9 and will contemplate immigration and what immigrants have meant to our country. The centerpiece of the worship service will be a presentation of the cantata The Immigrant Experience, by Winchester UU Music Director John Kramer. The Sanctuary Choir and three vocal soloists will sing this work, accompanied by piano, cello, violin and clarinet.

The service will also feature the FUUSN Flute Choir and our liturgical dance company, CreationDance. The Offering in the service will go to support the families of refugees (asylum seekers) that FUUSN is sponsoring with four other churches and synagogues in Newton and Brookline. The umbrella organization is the Newton-Brookline Asylum Resettlement Committee (NBARC).

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.

Plans for 2018-2019 include: singing the Fauré Requiem at First Parish Church in Arlington, MA and at FUUSN; singing 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 at FUUSN (benefitting the Newton Brookline Asylum Resettlement Committee); hosting a benefit concert for the UU Urban Ministry; and providing music for the annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace.
