Arts at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston


There are many opportunities to experience and perform music at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston during Sunday services, special occasions, and events. Members and friends are encouraged to share their musical gifts by presenting special music collaboratively or as soloists during services throughout the year.

Sanctuary Choir

If you love to sing, join our choir. Enjoy learning choral music from various composers, genres, styles, and languages. The volunteer choir welcomes singers of all ages and abilities and does not require an audition to participate. The choir sings three Sundays per month.

beginning July 31, 2024 on Wednesdays 7:00 – 8:30 pm in the Choir Room on the 3rd floor.
