Sunshine Kids Choir

The Sunshine Kids is a choir for ERUUF’s youngest singers (Grades K-3). Songs are taught by ear, and movement and rhythm are incorporated to engage younger singers. Our repertoire includes UU hymns, traditional favorites, children’s music and more. Simple harmonies are introduced, and much fun is had while singers learn to make a beautiful sound together. There are occasional opportunities to perform for children who wish to do so. We meet throughout the program year after service in Room 1.
