Music at UCWC
UCWC boasts a wide variety of musical offerings, both to enhance our Sunday Services and to strengthen connections with the communities we serve. We’re proud to have long been a venue for outstanding performances of classical, folk and popular music. More recently our commitment has grown to actively embrace a wide spectrum of musical expression on Sundays and at other select times.

Our adult choir is a diverse and exciting group who meet to create great music and to be in wonderful fellowship with each other throughout the year. The choir, all of whom are volunteers, sings once a month from September through May. We always welcome newcomers. All singers, high school age and older, are welcome to join. Music reading is not a prerequisite and no audition is needed.
The Spirit Singers perform a diverse repertoire of music from around the world. A high level of performance is sought in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. Your participation is welcomed.
The choir is led by Miriam Davidson, who also serves as our Music Director and the Artistic Director of Anna Crusis Women’s Choir in Philadelphia. The choir rehearses on most Thursday evenings from 7:15-9:15. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Miriam at: email: choir
Workshops and Concerts
Several times a year we have special musical workshops and concerts featuring a diverse mix of special guests. We’ve hosted Alex Shaw for a Brazilian percussion workshop, Janet Peck for an African dance service, the Providence Orchestra for a classical string concert, Billy Jonas and Kim and Reggie Harris and David Roth for folk concerts. In addition, Rev. Dan, whose work has been nominated for a Grammy®, periodically gives concerts.
