Music Ministry

Union Band Ensemble



The goal for the band program is to help develop and maximize the musical potential of students and nurture performance skills on various wind, string and percussion instruments. Our hope is that the band program will not only foster musical skills but also build self esteem and enhance the ability for students to work together. Enhancing our Sunday Worship Service with their skills will be our greatest achievement.


The Band was formed in the Fall of 2007 for youths and adults from the church and the wider community and had a professional band teacher for its first year. For the past 10 years the program has been coordinated by Erene Anthony assisted by June Keene, original saxophone player and Beverley McConney. University music students have provided the teaching expertise for the program. However, we welcome volunteers who are able to provide an hour on any Saturday between 1 and 3 pm.


The Band has been supported through the years by generosity of patrons of the church and community. There is no charge for students in the recorder group. however, parents of the Band Ensemble are asked to make a nominal monthly contribution. No one is denied access because they cannot pay.


We invite you to join us as we nurture our young musicians to enhance our music ministry.
