Dear BUF Musicians,
With the Choir Finale on June 6, featuring the "Turn the World Around" vocal ensemble, our BUF choir season came to a close for 2020-2021. Now we're taking the summer off!
Thanks to everyone for participating in the various ways of BUF music making during the pandemic. We made it through - with shining colors!
There will be two more services broadcast from the sanctuary this month: June 13 and June 20. After that, all the Sunday services through September 5 will originate from presenters' homes and be broadcast over Zoom. If you have something to offer for a summer service, musical or otherwise, that you can deliver in a pre-recorded format, or that you are able to perform live from your home over Zoom, please email your offering to Rev. Paul. He will be taking most of July and August off himself, but he will still be coordinating the summer services.
I hope and expect that BUF choir rehearsals will resume on Wednesday, September 8, as if Covid never happened. We'll have Chalice Choir from 6:45-8pm, and Phoenix Ensemble from 8:15-9pm. The Chalice Choir will sing "We Are One" for the Ingathering Service on Sunday, September 12.
The choir committee will be meeting soon to brainstorm ideas for choir events and repertoire for 2021-2022. If you have questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me or Choir Committee Chair Elie Friedlob at
