The Unitarian Church in Charleston supports an active and enthusiastic music program. Music is an important way for congregants to actively participate in our community and our worship services. Enhancing the services through music is a wonderfully satisfying endeavor. Instrumental music, anthems and hymn choices represent a wide range of musical styles and texts, reflecting the diverse nature of our congregation and Unitarian principles.
We have a number of ensembles and opportunities for music lovers to get involved including our Adult Choir, Intergenerational Choir , Special Music and Music Committee.
In addition to music on Sundays, the Church hosts two concert series: Candlelight Concerts in the Sanctuary and Coffeehouses in Gage Hall. Every spring, one of our youths are awarded the Martha Welch Scholarship to continue their music studies.
Our music program is headed up by Susan Conant, our Interim Music Director with the assistance of Amy Ball, pianist and organist. You may reach Susan at this address: email@example.com.
