Music at MUF
Dr. Jim Blanton, Music Director
The Morristown Unitarian Fellowship is a congregation of music lovers. Our music program features three choirs and many congregant soloists and instrumentalists, as well as frequent guest performers. We also offer an annual concert series and composer in residence program, and workshops on congregational singing and musical participation. Sunday Services exhibit robust congregational singing, choir anthems and instrumental solos in diverse musical styles and periods. Our grand piano and harpsichord are frequently used instruments, but congregants also may encounter drums, orchestral instruments, guitars or jazz ensembles. Music at the Fellowship engages congregants of all ages and musical tastes.
