Music at UUFSD
The UUFSD Music Program is a vital ministry which deepens and enhances the spiritual life of the congregation and the larger community through the universal experience of music.
Music is an important part of our Sunday service. Led by our Music Director, Christine Lehman, a typical service includes a piano prelude, two congregational hymns, music for meditation, and a postlude. The UUFSD Choir sings approximately twice per month, and the Band approximately once per month. Additionally, many talented vocal and instrumental soloists from our Fellowship, both youth and adults, as well as some from the larger San Diego community frequently perform at our services.
The UUFSD Band is our 7-piece exceptional in-house, all volunteer, amplified ensemble, which plays a wide variety of moving music, primarily folk-rock and Americana.
Twice per year, in December and June, the worship service is entirely focused around a musical worship. These Music Sundays feature the choir and band, and often other artists, including dancers, instrumentalists, and community professional musicians. A recent service centered on the theme of “freedom”, with references to the social activist movements of Black Lives Matter and Immigrants’ Rights.
In addition to Sunday service music, we offer regular drum circles, hosted by Frank Lazarro, and a Coastal Concert Series, open to the public.
