All-Ages Song and Story Circle

Music is said to be the gateway to the heart. This is especially true when we are not passively taking in the artistic contributions of trained others, but rather adding our own, joyous and unrefined voices to the whole, creating something that is infinitely more vital than the sum of its parts.

For the past year, a small circle of us have been gathering, first online and then in-person, to share our songs, stories and voices as a way of staying connected. We invite you to this outdoor service at HUUF that will be hosted by several of our most beloved, amateur music makers within the congregation. Safely distanced, we’ll explore the power of hymns, chants, spirituals, silly songs and pop standards to re-connect us to each other and the heart that sustains us all.
