Join the Music Ministry of First Church

Come join the Music Ministry at the First United Church of Christ, Congregational in Milford! Come be part of a diverse musical community that includes six dynamic ensembles, a vibrant concert series and many opportunities for you to praise God through music. Our mission is: "At First United Church of Christ (Congregational) of Milford, we strive to create and sustain a music ministry that provides its diverse congregation and the wider community with a variety of opportunities to praise and serve God through participation in and appreciation of great music." Our Adult Choir gives glory to God at our Sunday worship services, and performs traditional/classical music at a high level. Our Meetinghouse Ringers explore music through the world of handbell performance. Our Pilgrim Chorale explores the contemporary music experience both in and out of worship. Our Youth and Junior Choirs allow our youngest musicians to explore the joy of music through song, playing instruments and creating their own music. Finally, if you crave the experience of singing large-scale music in a large choral ensemble with an orchestra, the Meetinghouse Chorale is the place for you. The Chorale is a long-standing community of First Church members, members of other church choirs, and community members who come together to perform large choral music, sometimes accompanied by a small orchestra! Last fall, the Chorale performed a special concert of the music of Bach and Brahms to celebrate the Reformation's 500th Birthday and a concert saluting Great Literature in Music in the springtime. This concert even included a world premiere! On March 30, 2019, we will journey together through the music of Handel, as the Chorale and Orchestra perform Handel's Messiah Parts 2 and 3. We are always looking for more singers; the more singers we have, the greater sound we have! Come help fill out sanctuary with joyous music!  Check out our various music ensemble pages for more information on our six major music ensembles and their rehearsal start-up dates.

Whether you are a child or a child at heart, First Church has a music ensemble for you! No audition required, just contact Daniel Brownell, Minister of Music (musicminister@firstchurchofmilford.org) or call the church office (203 877 4277) to find out the rehearsal schedule.
