The discovery of song and the creation of musical instruments both owed their origin to a human impulse which lies much deeper than conscious intention: the need for rhythm in life… the need is a deep one, transcending thought, and disregarded at our peril.

- Richard Baker

Music at Restoration

We find that making music with and for our community here at Restoration is a central and beautiful part of our spiritual practice as Unitarian Universalists.

Our Restoration Singers, the foundation of our music program, sing 3 Sundays per month, performing an array of challenging, evocative repertoire spanning many cultures, and many decades.

The Choir is open to all willing to make the commitment. Attendance at 3 rehearsals (Thurs at 7:15pm) per month is not absolutely mandatory, but highly advised, because members find that it's trickier to function if they miss.

Other options to share your Musical Light, are:
UUTambores - our drumming ensemble, which does not have a regular rehearsal schedule.
Restoration RINGERS - our handbell ensemble which rehearses once/week between now and the December holidays. We perform for 2 or 3 Sundays in December (including Music Sunday), as well as Christmas Eve service.
The Band from Hale - (you gotta say it outloud with a drawl...) - our guitar/bass/drums and anything else will get alot of workout in services this year.

So, our church has 4 options! Whichever group you join, know that you will be with talented, devoted, wonderful people, with whom you will have alot of fun! If you are interested, please speak with me, Jane Hulting, Music Director, after church on Sunday, OR me.
