 UCE Through the Decades

We celebrate the heritage of UCE by hearing from members of UCE about the decade they joined the congregation.  We begin in the 1960s and end with the 2010s.  Please come and hear about these journeys of faith, hope and justice through the decades. Service led by Rev. Gregory Stewart and Rev. Eileen Wiviott.  All Ages Worship at 9:15. Religious Education class begin downstairs.

This recital explores how earlier composers like Bach and Field would have inspired Chopin, and in turn, how Chopin might have inspired other composers like Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Skryabin, Grieg, Debussy and Faure.  All the pieces in each group are in the same key and show the uncanny resemblances in the piano writing and mood.

February has turned out to be too short and too busy to schedule a REAL Meal, so we have pushed into the first evening of March for our next event. We’ll meet at Good to Go, the Jamaican restaurant that moved last year across the street to their snazzy new digs on the Evanston side, 711 Howard. [For More]
