Announcing UCM’s 2021-2022 Acting Director of Music

Dear UCM Members and Friends,

I am very pleased to share with you that Donia Prince will be joining UCM’s staff as Acting Director of Music for the upcoming church year! Donia begins in this position on July 1st.

Donia participated in the UCM Choir over the last few years including acting as a substitute Choir Director on occasion and chairing the Music Committee. Donia brings a broad range of experience to this role as a singer and choir director in other local, community settings. Donia’s range and depth of experience, creativity, and musical sensitivity make her a wonderful addition to our worship staff team, and I know that she will serve the congregation and choir well as we continue in this time of transition and return to in-person services and programs.

Over the summer months, Donia will work with the Choir to arrange for rehearsals and gatherings and also begin preparing for the coming year’s worship services which begin mid-September.

I hope you will join me in welcoming Donia into this role!

And, special thanks to the Hiring Committee members – Brenda Bean, Pat Carstensen, Jackie Dennison, Ginny Sassaman, and Tom Schersten – as well as the Executive Team, Governing Board, and Pianist, Eliza Thomas, for their support with this process.


Rev. Joan
