Take the UUFSD Concert Survey


Please help us plan for upcoming concerts by taking a few minutes to complete the UUFSD Concert Survey at

Your input and suggestions regarding musicians and musical style(s), as well as preferred time of day and day of week for these musical events will help in scheduling concerts most likely to be well attended and enjoyed by the largest number. It “takes a village” to help insure the success of these concerts, so we are also seeking volunteers to help with the various concert-related tasks. Whether or not you are willing to volunteer, please take a few moments to complete the Concert Survey. Your input is anonymous, unless you choose to provide contact information.

We will be collecting survey input through the Survey Monkey link through Sunday, August 20.

If you need a paper copy of the survey, please email Vicky at Thanks for your participation. UUFSD Concert Planning Group (Chris Byrnes, Chris Lehman, Jill Ballard, Rich Franzwa, Mark Tuller, Vicky Newman)

Carrie Newcomer in Concert January 20, 2018

In 2009 and 2011, Newcomer toured India as a cultural ambassador for the American Embassy. In 2011, she released her interfaith collaborative benefit album “Everything is Everywhere.”

Carrie Newcomer in Concert will be held on January 20, 2018 in Founders Hall. Doors open at 7:00 PM and concert begins at 7:30 PM. Discounted early-bird tickets are $20 online at or pay $30 at the door.
