2019 General Assembly Choir with Director Marty Swisher

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. For many, singing in the choir is a key part of coming together as UUs at General Assembly.

This year, there is not a single GA choir, but congregational choirs have been invited to submit recordings for inclusion.

We all know the joy of singing together. Even when we are online, togetherness is demonstrated through music created in community. GA Sunday Worship Leader Rev. Molly Housh Gordon, GA Sunday Worship Leader, and Natasha Steinmacher, GA Music Coordinator are seeking congregations that are willing to contribute a choral video to this year's service. If your congregation has an active choir and the equipment to record a performance, please submit your contact information so that worship planners can connect with you.
