Open Mic Night: A Safe and Welcoming Space

Do you have a hidden talent you'd like to share with the congregation? On March 7 we'll be hosting our annual Open Mic Night. It's open to all ages, all abilities, all genres. The only requirement is the act has to be family-friendly. It's free to perform and free to attend this event. So start digging out those tap shoes, that ukulele, that journal full of your poems, or that song you wrote. Our Open Mic Night is a safe and welcoming space for you to explore your creative side.

Mark your calendar for a few other music events you won't want to miss:

  • Sunday morning, March 29, will be Music Sunday, and this year we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment (women's right to vote) and the continuing fight for equal rights for women.
  • On April 18, we will present our bi-annual Music Under the Stars auction event.

There are many ways to be involved in the Music Ministries at OCUUC. Contact me anytime if you want to join us or help behind-the-scenes.

Volunteer Spotlight: This month's Volunteer Spotlight is shining brightly on Stacy Smith. She's been singing with the choir for over 4 years, plus she's performed several different solos at church events. She's written songs for use in worship, including co-writing (with Linda Kraemer) the Offertory Response song we sing every single Sunday. For the recent Winter Solstice Singing Ritual, Stacy collected materials and created the beautiful altar, representing the four Elements. And she's always the first to help out when there's a party to organize. Thanks, Stacy, for all the ways you contribute to the Music Ministries at OCUUC!

Musically Yours,

Beth Syverson
Director of Music Ministries
