I sing because I love it, but at UUCPA singing in the choir is also an opportunity. Bruce is a dynamic music director, Veronika is a remarkably talented pianist, and they both bring out the best in the choir. I enjoy being with my fellow singers and I'm proud that we perform well and have fun.

The UUCPA choir welcomes singers of all vocal backgrounds. We are looking for people:
You don't need to be able to sight-read, but you should be able to understand a music score and you should be able to learn a part quickly after hearing it. Bruce makes pronunciation recordings to make it easy to learn the text when it isn't in English.
We are a friendly and social group who gather for great parties as well as great music.
If you are curious, drop in at a rehearsal and try us out!
Our music director is Bruce Olstad, and our accompanist Veronika Agranov-Dafoe. Bruce is much in-demand as a conductor, opera coach and pianist. Veronika is also much in-demand pianist, and opera coach.
