RVUUF’s Music Director, Shaun Garner, pianist Jane Manning and choir offer music in varied styles during Sunday morning services, beginning with gathering music at 10:25 a.m. The choir rehearses weekly during RVUUF’s program year, 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays. New members are encouraged to join. According to Ms. Garner, “Inspiration, laughter, challenge, and community are just a few of the many rewards of singing.”

Choral Scholars
A generous bequest from the estate of Audrey Sochor, former member of RVUUF and the choir, supports the presence of “Choral Scholars,” music students at Southern Oregon University. RVUUF’s Choral Scholars, one in each section of the choir, support its volunteer singers, provide weekly continuity and assist in presenting quality music each Sunday that is inspiring and uplifting. The Choral Scholars also provide special music on Sundays when the choir isn’t singing.
