Historically, music has always been a rich part of UCM worship services and community life. On any given Sunday, you'll find our Director of Music, Sandra Hunt, playing the Laliberté piano and Eleuthera Diconca-Lippert conducting our Phoenix Community Choir. Services are enriched by the music created by various church members. The church is also home to a variety of concerts and workshops throughout the year. Events are listed on This Month.
When the new home of the Unitarian Church of Montreal opened on de Maisonneuve Blvd. in 1996, it also became home to a magnificent seven-and-a-half foot Steinway grand piano. This piano’s story is part of the musical heritage of our city and province.
Join this loving and supportive community, which rehearses every Thursday from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Their goal: to learn beautiful, accessible and fun songs from around the world, which they perform in a Sunday morning service once a month. For more information, email our Choir Director Eleuthera Diconca-Lippert.
We have a group of volunteer musicians, including pianists who provide service music on our Music Director’s off weeks including No More Blues, The Greater Goods and Tara Bissett along with other instrumental and vocal soloists who also volunteer.
