The Amazing Human Voice
Bob Kechley

We celebrate the wondrous expressive possibilities of the human voice. Communication is essential to our being and the voice is the most personal expression of that communication. And the voice used to make music is like opening the soul, opening the most vulnerable aspect of ourselves, opening a line of communication so direct it hurts. Join us for this service as we explore, with a talented array of singers, just what the incredible human voice can do!

Bob Kechley is the Music Director of East Shore Unitarian Church, and he will be joined by some talented vocalists from our congregation.
