Music is a universal language that expresses emotion and creates a connection between people; it is part of what binds us together at UUCNH.
Our Music Director, Mary Doubleday, has been leading the UUCNH Choir since Sept. 2000. The choir sings 30 Sundays each year, and at special events. We currently have around 25 members and are always happy to welcome more! The choir is accompanied by our main pianist, Nick Tiberi.
One of the joys of U.U. churches is that we are not restricted in our sources of inspiration when choosing music. Our choir has sung a lot of beautiful, traditional church music, including movements from the Brahms and Mozart Requiems, and anthems by Thomas Tallis and John Rutter. But we’ve also sung No One is Alone by Sondheim, Happy by Pharrell Williams, the theme song for Star Trek, and a women’s choral arrangement of Creep by Radiohead.
Our wonderful pianists, Nick Tiberi, and Hal Dixler, have similar freedom in their choice of repertoire; they inspire us each Sunday with their selections of classical and popular music. Nick has played concertina and guitar for us as well. And Hal recently celebrated 50 years of playing for UUCNH!
