Music & Choir at UUChs

The Unitarian Church supports an enthusiastic and wide-ranging music program. Music at the Unitarian Church in Charleston is an important outlet for actively participating in our community and worship services. 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, Music Committee, special music opportunities and concerts.  Follow the link to learn more about Music at UC-Chs and how you can join in.
