First Unitarian Church of Baltimore



"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."

Aldous Huxley had it right, and that's why music of all kinds plays such a big role in church life.  Whether it's a youth-produced rock concert to benefit local non-profit organizations, a Peabody concert or a simple musical meditation sung at the beginning of worship, church events often have musical components.  And even if you can't carry a tune in a bucket, you are welcome to sing out.

The music program at First Unitarian is led by This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . During services, congregants enter to the soft heartbeat of drums and are then invited to join in a musical meditation.  An all-volunteer choir performs anthems and offertories and rehearses on Sunday mornings from 9:00 until 10:30 a.m. Guest choirs and soloists are welcome guests, and hymns are sung from two hymnals, Singing the Living Tradition and Singing the Journey.  

The sanctuary organ, installed when the interior of the church was altered in 1893, was the gift of Enoch Pratt, Treasurer of the church and a well known philanthropist. We have begun a much-needed restoration of our Neimann organ, with the help of generous donations from members and friends.

The organ in the Enoch Pratt Parish Hall is from the Mount Zion A.M.E. Church in Annapolis, Maryland. It may have been built for St. Mary's Industrial School in Baltimore and was installed in its present location in 1895.
