General Assembly Choir
Each year a talented group of choral singers gathers to practice and perform for the General Assembly (GA) audience. Typically the choir participates in the Sunday Morning Worship and the Closing Celebration, and sometimes other events or hymn sings during GA.
Participants must be registered for General Assembly. Choir registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The choir is capped at 180 singers with balanced sections and the spaces are filled quickly.
Singers are required to sing in both the Sunday Morning Worship and the Closing Celebration. Attendance at all rehearsals is expected.
The 2015 Choir Director is Bertram Gulhaugen, Music Director at the Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Seattle, WA. The accompanist is David Servias, Music Director at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis, OR.
