Our Music Program

The musical life of First Unitarian Society is rich and varied. Our choirs (read more about our choirs here), solo singers and instrumentalists, String Band, Chime Choir, augment the worship experience for congregants and provide fellowship, learning, and growth for participants. Our professional staff of accomplished performers and educators regularly contribute to the musical tapestry as well. Our twice-yearly All Music Services highlight the contributions of our music program in worship.

Outside of worship, events such as the Friday Noon Musicale distinguished recital series and annual Harpsichord Recital provide musical outreach to the greater Madison community. Our two auditoriums provide outstanding venues for guest musicians.
