Music has always been an important part of our worship experience at University Temple. We work hard to include different types of music in the worship service every Sunday, from the magnificent organ to mellow strings and gospel spirituals to traditional hymns.
The Chancel Choir offers uplifting and powerful music during the Sunday morning services. The Chancel Choir rehearses Wednesdays at 7:30pm and they invite anyone interested to come and take part.
Our Hand bell Choir plays in worship about once every two months and rehearses Wednesdays 6:15 to 7:15 pm.
Both choirs rehearse between September and early June. We welcome new choir members and bell ringers of any level. If interested in joining, contact firstname.lastname@example.org

The UTUMC Pipe Organ
The pipe organ supporting worship is a magnificent instrument with 5 divisions, 54 ranks, 43 voices, and 3,109 pipes played from a 3 manual console. Built originally with the Sanctuary in 1927 by the Kimball Organ Company, modernized in 1977 and further augmented in 1989 and 1991 by Balcom and Vaughan Organ company, revoiced in 1981 by John Hendrickson formerly of Aeolian Skinner Organ Company, and restored with solid state electrical switching by Bond Organ Builders in 2017, the instrument is one of the most versatile instruments in the Seattle area. A more detailed description of the History, Science and Music of the Pipe Organ as the “King of Instruments” can be found in this educational 25 minute video.
