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.
Anne Watson Born is honored to be the GA Choir Director this year. She is the Director of Music Ministry at the First Unitarian Universalist Society in Newton and is a Credentialed UU Music Leader. She is the chair of the UUA’s Music Leadership Certification Committee and is also the Lifelong Repertoire & Resources chair for the Massachusetts chapter of the American Choral Directors Association. Kenneth Griffith, Music Director at the UU Church of Greater Lynn in Massachusetts, will serve as the Choir Accompanist

Onsite sign-up will only occur if space is still available.
Participants must be registered for General Assembly to participate in choir (though you may register for choir prior to registering for GA). 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. This year, all participants must contribute $15 toward the cost of choir octavos, payable by MasterCard or Visa at the time of choir registration. Singers may pick up their music at the first rehearsal. If all available choir spots fill, a waiting list will be formed for spots that may open after the first rehearsal on Wednesday.
Singers are required to sing in both the Sunday Morning Worship (9:00 - 10:30 a.m.) and the Closing Celebration (4:30 - 5:00 p.m.). Attendance at all rehearsals is expected.
