Music and Choir
(Updated Jan. 2, 2023)
We are open in person for worship in the sanctuary at 4 Palmer St. We provide a live online option for those who want to join us from home.
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. Music can raise us up and carry us toward a vision of beloved community. Jo Ellen Miano, music director, leads us at the Steinway piano.
Once a month during 2022-23 we’ll be spotlighting an inspiring changemaker who is Choosing Hope: someone who engages in activities and purposes that center hope as a primary motivating value, despite a world that can easily leave us discouraged or in despair. Join us to hear these featured changemakers, vocalists and instrumentalists, who share their perspectives on music and hope.
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. Frequently, soloists participate in live singing. Our congregation engages in uplifting communal singing, (masked in the sanctuary) and even while muted on Zoom!
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 at this time.
