Chancel Choir (College Age and Up)
Led by Director of Music Ara Carapetyan, the choir rehearses downstairs in the Choir Room on Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Performing at the Sunday morning service, the choir is supported by section leaders who are students from the University of Texas at Austin. Music ranges from gospel to classical, a cappella or accompanied by piano or pipe organ. Annual retreats and concerts with local churches and organizations foster strong bonds and special musical opportunities in addition to Sunday worship. Check UPC’s Calendar for up-to-date practice schedules and concerts.
Joyful Noise Handbell Choir (High School and Up)
The handbell choir, directed by Meg McReynolds, rehearses Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., during the school year. The choir plays during worship several times throughout the year… and we need ringers! We are fortunate to have 5 octaves of bells, but right now we only have enough ringers to play 3 octaves. If you have ever played handbells, thought about playing handbells, or wished you played handbells, now is the time! Anyone from high school age and up is welcome; no experience required, just a willingness to commit the time. Please join us! Childcare provided! Check UPC’s Calendar for up-to-date practice schedules and concerts.
