Music at Union Chapel
Union Chapel has been blessed with a fine music program throughout its nearly 150 year history. Many distinguished Organist / Music Directors have served the congregation, including S. Lewis Elmer, Harold Heeremans, Gary Zwicky, Garrett Brown, David Rhoderick, and currently William Peek. For over a century, worship services have featured congregational singing and vocal selections offered by a professional vocal quartet. Music at the services is drawn from a wide variety of sources. Anthems in recent years have ranged from works of Bach, Mozart, and Schütz to African American Spirituals, gospel, and jazz. The 10:00 am services are preceded by 20 minutes of organ preludes.
The Union Chapel Festival Chorus, made up of singers from the congregation, offers music at a service each August. This choir rehearses in late July and early August, and we welcome interested singers to join us. For more information about this chorus, please contact William Peek.
