MUSIC AT SOMESVILLE UNION MEETING HOUSE

MUSIC FOR WORSHIP

The SUMH Choir sings at the Sunday morning worship services in the fall, winter, and spring. The choir rehearses in the church at 9:00 a.m. on those Sundays. The choir performs repertoire in a variety of styles from the Renaissance to the present, including classics, spirituals, and contemporary anthems in a popular idiom.

New members are always welcome. Music-reading ability is helpful but is not a requirement. Repertoire is generally prepared two or three weeks in advance, so rehearsal time is ample. If you are interested in joining, please contact our Director of Music, Christina C. Spurling MM.

INSTRUMENTS

Our instruments are a Mason & Hamlin "A" Series grand piano, purchased in November 2009, and a Rodgers 205 pipe/electronic organ donated in 2010. The cost of the piano was covered by a generous private donation soon after the purchase. The cost of moving and installing the organ was covered by a $2,500 "Resourcing the Local Church" Grant, awarded by the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ in October 2010.
