The Wheel of Life service on October 29 was a beautiful and thoughtful reflection on our journeys, as individuals, families, and as a congregation. Many thanks to the FUUSN musicians who contributed so much to the service: George Batchelor, Jim Cook, Aidan Devine, and Brian Hicks. Our FUUSN Band is always looking for people to play and sing – upcoming performance dates are: November 26, December 17, and the always-fun FUUSN Musicians Concert on February 4, 2018.
And there are many other opportunities to join in the musical fun. Music Sunday is coming up on December 10. We’ll sing part of Handel’s wonderful oratorio, Messiah, with an orchestra – super fun music to sing. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays, from 7:30 – 8:30 pm in the Chapel.
If you or your school-age child is studying a musical instrument, come and play with FIGCO, FUUSN’s Intergenerational Chamber Orchestra. We’ll be playing some holiday music at the Annual Carol Sing service on December 17. Rehearsals will be from 11.45am to 1pm, in the Sanctuary, on November 26, December 3, and December 10. ALL ARE WELCOME – we can arrange parts for players who are beginners or for more advanced players. This is a wonderful way for children and adults to work together.

Another way to enjoy music with your family is with the Eureka Ensemble. “Eureka Ensemble brings together Boston’s finest young musicians to use classical music as a platform for social action and community engagement.
Our concerts focus on supporting social causes by creating strategic partnerships with local organizations to make an impact in the community through music. Eureka is also dedicated to working with artistically under-served communities through an extensive outreach program.” (https://www.eurekaensemble.org/calendar/).
Eureka has three FREE Community for All concerts coming up – Nov 5, 16, and 19. “Each concert will feature classical musicians from the Greater Boston Area as well as “orchestra playgrounds,” where children and adults can see, touch, and play instruments with the musicians.” -Anne Watson Born
