“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”
~~ Victor Hugo

The Peak Performers are a small but enthusiastic choir which sings a diverse repertoire. The choir presents one anthem per month, on average. These anthems are pre-recorded and compiled, and we’re happy to help anyone unfamiliar with the system with the technology aspect of this process as needed.

The choir meets on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm-9pm over Zoom, and interested parties can email choir@mpuuc.org to be provided the link to join us.

We recently hired Von Bringhurst as a part-time choir director to lead our choir.
