Our Music Ministry is a vital part of our worship life here at UU San Mateo. We present a wide variety of music at our worship services and other special events. Led by our Music Director Shawn Reifschneider and Accompanist Paul Zawilski, we encourage widespread participation from members and friends alike. There is something for any musician of any age.
If you or someone you know may be interested in participating in our Music Ministry, please contact Shawn Reifschneider.
The UU San Mateo Choir presents a diverse array of repertoire, offering everything from early classical works to inspiring world music. You can enjoy these offerings on most Sundays at our 10:00 a.m. worship services.
The choir season culminates in June with a Sunday morning festival service celebrating music in worship. It’s a morning not to be missed!
Join us! We rehearse each Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. from August to June, singing three of four Sundays a month. No audition is required. We are always looking for more singers from high school and up. For more information, contact Music Director Shawn Reifschneider.
UU San Mateo’s House Band is a group of instrumentalists and singers provide leadership for congregational singing in worship as well as presenting its own special musical offering from time to time. The rhythm section (piano, bass, guitar, and drums) is often supplemented by other instruments. If you play any instrument or sing and wish to be a part of this group on a regular or even occasional basis, contact Shawn Reifschneider.
Marty Hoffman, an experienced children’s music teacher and fine musician in her own right, leads UU San Mateo’s Children’s Choir. This choir is open to children in grades K-8th grade. They sing in our worship services approximately four or five times each year. Do you want more information on how to register, then please contact the music director.
