“Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.”

~Haruki Murakami


Eliot ChoirsEliotchoirsgeneral

Music plays an important part in the life of Eliot Chapel.  Relevant collaboration makes us draw from a wide spectrum of musical styles, from classical to contemporary. Our choir members volunteer to provide music for worship because it’s a fulfilling and meaningful way to serve the congregation, as well as to connect with others who like to sing.

We have a number of groups, listed below, who sing in services.

The children’s choir is open to kids in first through fifth grades and is led by Music Director Jan Chamberlin. The focus is on having fun, learning musical skills and practicing UU-centered songs for worship services.  The group proudly wears their yellow Chalice Choir t-shirts as they sing in select services.  During the holidays they gather together for a pizza party and then share their voices in song at a local retirement home.
