Led by Stephen Preece, working with the Music Committee, we have an eclectic and vibrant music culture here at Grand River Unitarian. Our services include music from different genres and religious traditions which are in harmony with the principles of our tradition.
We are lucky to have many talented musicians in our congregation, including the members of the jazz-inspired “Sydney Street Trio.” We also host a diversity of guest musicians from outside our congregation, playing everything from the violin and guitar to the Japanese flute and harmonium.
The Adult Choir is a mixed-voice choir made up of non-auditioned singers and sings at about one Sunday services per month between September and June. Our choir director is Rich Hrytzak. Rehearsals are advertised a month before the performance.
Our hymn leaders help encourage lively and enthusiastic participation by our congregation as we sing selections from our Unitarian hymnals, Singing the Living Tradition and Singing the Journey. They gather around the piano about half an hour before the service to do a quick review of the hymns.
