There are many ways people of all ages can become involved in Music Ministries at OCUUC. The Orange Coast Choir performs 2–3 times per month (excluding summer), the Kaleidoscope Singers rehearses and performs in every month in which there are 5 Sundays. At all times, there are plenty of opportunities for instrumentalists and vocal soloists to perform.
In 2007, our Adult and Family Choirs made an album! “Family ValUUes” is a collection of kid-friendly, family music reinforces Unitarian Universalist (UU) traditions, expresses UU values, and affirms the worth and dignity of all.

Orange Coast Concerts, our eclectic concert series, provides a wonderful opportunity to hear top-notch performances at our church and provides a positive outreach to the community.
E-mail Beth Syverson (musicdirectorocuucorg) for more information about the Music Ministries.
About once a month, when our choirs are taking a Sunday off, we bring in a professional guest artist to provide music during the Sunday services.
