choir in november of 2019

Our choir sits, eager to sing, pre-pandemic.


Music is an important part of life at First Parish UU Church. Most services feature live music, both instrumental and vocal. The Sanctuary includes a fine Hook & Hastings organ and grand piano. But going beyond tradition, a video or recording may enhance the worship theme. 

One Sunday you might hear classical organ or piano pieces and traditional hymns; the next worship service might be full of swinging gospel tunes and spirituals. You might hear a blues or jazz prelude, or folk songs. There are modern compositions and even pop or rock.

Pictured above is an ensemble of the choirs from three UU churches: Sanford, Saco/Biddeford, and First Parish. They occasionally rehearse together and perform at special services. The FPUU choir is open to singers of different ages, experience levels, and backgrounds. They rehearse weekly, now on Zoom. Soloists are also welcome to add their talents to services.
