Music: Sun Mar 14


The UUSC's historical work on behalf of the denomination's values, its commitment to environmental justice, social equity, and advocacy for the oppressed and marginalized, underlie this morning's musical selections. In addition, the works of the lesbian French composer Cécile Chaminade and the African-American Margaret Bonds draw attention to International Women's Month. The works of Unitarian composer Edvard Grieg celebrate the nascent season and the spirituality of the natural world, while the Unitarian Béla Bartók gives voice to the indigenous cultures of Eastern Europe by preserving their oral musical heritage. This morning's Parting Music is based on an energetic folk song from Southeast Africa, as arranged by the British composer of African descent Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. In addition, words of hope from the musical Dear Evan Hansen come our way in a virtual performance by our own choir, augmented by friends from other area UU choruses and beyond.  Read on for programming details.
