Music at The First Unitarian Church of Hamilton

“If you can walk, you can dance; if you can talk, you can sing.” – African Proverb

Music Director, Rachel Derry

Choir Director, Cindy Carey


Music ministry is an integral part of our worship and caring ministry to each other and to the world.

Our church is committed to a music ministry which is diverse and volunteer-rich. We celebrate the gifts of the community; our volunteer choir, and the many members and friends who make music for us each week. We welcome special guest artists and we feature regular “Music Sundays” throughout the year in two “Music For Its Own Sake” services.

The music life of First Unitarian is not limited to Sunday mornings. We have monthly music nights, usually on the last Friday of each month where you can come to sing, play, or just hum along; Fall Festival and other musical events.


Our Choir is open to any interested singers from youth and beginners to the wise and experienced. Choir meets every Thursday night from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and sings in church approximately every other week. We sing a wide variety of music styles, origins, cultures and arrangements. Come out to choir – you’ll be glad you did!
