Unitarian Church of Calgary Choirs

UUphonia

UUphonia is the 40-member mixed-voice adult choir of the Unitarian Church of Calgary. Our repertoire is a wonderfully eclectic selection of secular and spiritual choral music. The choir sings twice each month at the church’s Sunday morning worship services. Each year, UUphonia presents a winter concert and, in April, a full-length Cabaret complete with songs, skits and comedy – one of the highlights of the church year! We value musical excellence, caring community, and laughing as we learn. This is an unauditioned choir – everyone is welcome.

Dates: Thursdays, September through June, 7:30 – 9:30 pm. First rehearsal is September 6, 2018.

My Song is a Prayer

This song was used as the anthem for the Canadian Unitarian Council’s Annual Conference in Calgary, 2013. The song was composed by Greg O’Neill, Unitarian Church of Calgary member, and arranged by Jane Perry, the Unitarian Church of Calgary’s music director. Please sing this, share this, and enjoy this piece with your home congregation. And please let Jane know when you sing it! Enjoy!
