The RUC choir is a chamber ensemble of skilled amateur and professional singers, versatile in many musical styles from baroque and classical to gospel and bluegrass. They support the liturgical message each week with a variety of musical offerings and rousing descants to congregational hymns. To enhance the listener’s experience, information about the music performed is provided each week in the bulletin. Whether pursuing active performing careers or engaged in other professional pursuits during the week, the members of this 25-voice ensemble come together on Sunday mornings with a common and collaborative goal: to contribute to the spiritual life of the congregation as well as to each other, through the power of singing that speaks to the soul.
