Music at First Church





For more than three hundred seventy years, the people of First Church, Milford, have worshipped God through music!

We are united by our common goal to uphold the mission and vision of First Church as well as the Mission of the First Church Music Ministry which states:

"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 Music Ministry is multi-faceted operation that includes six major music ensembles, other performance opportunities within and outside worship, a vibrant concert series and much more.  We offer music training and performance opportunities of the highest possible caliber for children, teens and adults in a supportive and joyful environment.  Prior experience including the ability to read music is not required to join any of our ensembles, and all are welcome to attend any rehearsal at any time during the year.  Membership in the choirs is open to all individuals who enjoy music, and are able to make the time commitment necessary to attend rehearsals and worship services. It is also open to those who's schedules require flexibility.  During the month of September, we offer open rehearsals, where anyone can come listen or participate and decide if music is something they want to get involved in (we guarantee if you come, you'll want to come back).

Please contact our Minister of Music, Daniel Brownell, with any questions.  Please also refer to the pertinent website pages for more information.  Come be formed and reformed in the Music Ministry this year!
