At the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos, music plays a key role. Our congregation is a wonderful source of musical talent and we encourage displaying that talent in our services. From the Adult, Youth, and Children’s Choirs to highlighting of our sopranos and mezzo-sopranos to individual instrumental performances, we strive to incorporate a rich musical program into our Sunday Services.
On any given weekend, our special music might be as early as Bach or Mozart; through the great Romantic masters such as Brahms, Schumann, and Chopin; into 20th century standards, musicals and pop; or brand-new compositions by denominational and our own local artists.
Our Music Director, Alicia Solomon. Alicia’s wide experience includes opera, oratorio, and musical theatre, as well as extensive sacred work, serving as organist, cantor, and soloist for a variety of Judeo/Christian denominations. She holds a Master of Sacred Music degree, and teaches voice, piano, and guitar. For more information about Alicia including resume, downloads, etc. go to her web site www.aliciasolomon.com.

There are three choirs that perform regularly at our church, each usually performing two songs (during prelude and anthem times) at each of the two services.
The Adult Choir sings approximately every four-six weeks with pieces ranging from standard hymns to full classical choir arrangements. The Adult Choir practices on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00 pm.
The Youth Choir performs about once a month and includes children from 4th grade through high school. The Youth Choir sings easy harmony in two parts, often with guitar. Practices are on Wednesdays from 4:30 – 5:30 pm.
The Children’s Choir is lead by Mark and Kimberly Petersen and includes children up through 3rd grade. The children perform at services about once a month and learn about singing in front of a group and how to sing with some differing parts. Children’s Choir practices on Wednesdays from 4:45 – 5:30 pm.
