Music plays a key role at River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation, both during Sunday worship and throughout the year. High-quality music is greatly valued as part of the worship experience each week. The musical interests of our members — adults and youth alike — are fostered and encouraged for the enrichment of our entire congregation and community.
Music for Sunday Morning Worship
The River Road Choir
Our 50-voice adult group sings for services from September through May and prepares longer programs for special Music Sundays twice a year. The group has a wide-ranging repertoire that includes classical music, spirituals, pop, musical theater, world music, and original compositions by Music Director, Dr. Clif Hardin.

Two CD recordings of the River Road Choir have been produced and are available for purchase on Sundays at the River Road Bookstore in the Fellowship Hall.
River Road's youth choirs offer an opportunity for young people from Kindergarten through high school to develop as musicians. These choirs provide a great place to connect with other kids at River Road and to experience singing together. The youth choirs sing regularly for Sunday services and special occasions throughout the year. More about the youth choirs
