Music is an important part of our worship services. It can speak to the soul deeply and powerfully, creating a time of beauty and reflection.

Since moving to live online services via Zoom, we generally frame worship services with opening and closing music, often drawn from “Singing the Living Tradition” and “Singing the Journey.” Music also serves to anchor spiritually throughout the service. Soloists participate in live singing. Our congregation engages in uplifting communal singing, even while muted on Zoom!

In our online gatherings, music is foundational to any videos we include in the service. Virtual choirs or vocal and instrumental moments lift us during times of reflection or celebration.

As soon as safety protocols allow it, we look forward to the return of live choral singing from our Occasional Choir.

Meanwhile, we have been exploring activities involving virtual choir projects and, coming in 2022, a monthly drop-in gathering — open to all —  called “Beloved Voices in Community.” Details on this casual gathering are forthcoming! 

For years, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Plattsburgh has been known as a host of public concerts featuring bluegrass, jazz and folk genres, among others, through its distinguished Palmer Street Coffeehouse. The coffeehouse remains closed during the pandemic.
