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 12 years the program has been coordinated by Erene Anthony assisted by June Keene, original saxophone player as well as Beverley Mc Conney. University music students have provided the teaching expertise for the program. However, we would welcome volunteers who are able to provide an hour on any Saturday between 1 and 3 pm.

 

We have been blessed to have an accomplished cellist Mme Monique Le Clerc volunteer teach a few young children to play the cello. Please contact us if you are interested in playing the Dulcimer. We do have a space for you.  

 

The Band has been supported through the years by the generosity of patrons of the church and community. However, parents of the Band Ensemble are asked to make a nominal monthly contribution.

 

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

 

The Band Ensemble presentation is held on the second Sunday in February in celebration of Black History Month and closes with a presentation on the second Sunday in June when we celebrate Heritage week at Union.
