The UBC Children’s Choir is open to any child from pre-school through 5th grade. We focus on a fun and integrated approach of learning to sing through a scripturally-based music curriculum. Our choir sings in worship periodically and for special seasons of the church year. For more information on Children’s ministry at UBC contact Stephanie Cooper.
The UBC College Choir is for any college or college aged student in the Austin Metro area. We sing a wide range of music spanning from plainchant to the top music from the Contemporary Christian genre. This choir has an emphasis on service through the arts, reaching out to the Austin community through our music. This choir sings regularly in worship services both at UBC and in other congregations in the Austin community, particularly at Christmas and Easter. Additionally, the college choir goes on a yearly tour singing in the United States and around the World. For more information contact Lily White or Amelia Fulbright.
