Music Program

COVID has changed the way music is done at churches, including our own.
Our talented staff and volunteers lovingly work to ensure music continues to be an integral part of our worship. If you are a musician, a singer, or in any way interested in being involved in our music program, please contact our Music Director, Tara Tresner-Kirsch, and she will find a way to help you express your creativity. Most of the information below is pertinent to when our building is open again (soon!).

Music is an integral part of the worship life of the Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church. Our musical offerings add beauty, spiritual depth, and inspiration to our worship services.

Adult Choir
The MUUC Adult Choir participates in most Sunday morning services and is well known for its powerful and inspiring anthems. In addition to regular Sunday services, the choir sings at the Christmas Eve Service and prepares larger choral works for special “Music Sundays” in the spring.

The Adult choir is for those who love to sing in a group and enjoy the unique community of a singing organization. It is mainly composed of adult men and women, though interested high school singers are also encouraged to join. No previous choir experience is necessary. The ability to read music is helpful, but not required. Rehearsals are at 9 am on Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary – new singers are always welcome! If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact our Music Director, Tara Tresner-Kirsch

MUUC Children's ChoirChildren’s Choir
The Children’s Choir (ages 5 and up) sings at approximately 4 worship services during the year. Rehearsals are on the Sundays leading up to each performance. This volunteer-led choir is for children who love to sing and want to share in group singing experience.

Special Music
Instrumentalists and vocalists from the MUUC community give of their musical talents by playing music for worship services. Contact our Music Director, Tara Tresner-Kirsch, about the possibility of providing service music or developing “ad hoc” musical groups. Our service music draws from a wide variety of styles and musical traditions, and we are blessed to have fabulous and generous musicians in our congregation!
