2013 UU Children's Choir
The UU Children’s Choir of 2013 added a transformative experience to the UUMN conference in Dallas! Children learned from UUMN folks as they led workshops and worships at the camp; UUMN folks learned from Cynthia Nott as they observed her rehearsals, and they all got to play, sing and worship together at First Unitarian Church of Dallas. Adults were commonly moved to tears (of joy!) at first hearing of the children’s voices. This time together will be remembered for a long time!
Thanks to President Sarah Dan Jones and all the UUMN folks; our host, Don Krehbiel of First U. Dallas; and to Marlene Abel, the Camp Coordinator and volunteer chaperones for making this all possible! Thanks also to all the singers and families for preparing and participating! Through all this, we were better able to carry out our mission. - Jan Chamberlin, Program Director, UUCC 2013
