We know that music is central to the worship experience - as we delight in the presence of God. HPUC has a long history of integrating a variety of music styles into worship, including organ, sacred choral music, gospel, jazz, and spirituals.
We frequently are treated to the sounds of local musicians, and sometimes even turn our sanctuary into a concert space! Musical guests have included the Willie Pickens Trio (Jazz), Justin and the Salty Dogs (Contemporary Bluegrass), EnsAmble Ad-Hoc (Early Music for Soprano and Lute), organist Dr. Stephen Alltop (Northwestern University), the Chicago Chorale, and the Marimba Ensemble from Holy Cross-IHM.
The Senior Choir is central to our Music Program and leads morning worship throughout the school year. The choir consists of dedicated volunteers from our congregation. Rehearsals are on Sundays at 8:30 am. New singers and musicians are always welcome! Please contact our Director of Music, Elikem Fiase, to learn about how you can share your gifts.
