Music Notes

Our new Music Director, Rebecca Brown, began on January 1, 2023.  We welcome her to our church family.

You may email her directly at rdbrownfirsthartland@gmail.com with any comments/suggestions.

The choir will be back in the choir loft during May.  

Rebecca has been playing the piano or organ in churches since age 12.  She received her music degree at the University of Florida and has been a church Music Director for more than 30 years.  In 2014 she moved from Florida to serve as Youth Minister at First Church Granby (UCC) and was ordained there in 2018. 

Rebecca describes her work as “forming faith through music”.  To her, music is ministry because it can slip beneath the shut door of a closed mind or heart.  Her passion is composing and arranging music, and as such, she is as likely to rework a dusty old hymn as reset a modern pop song for its sacred worth. It’s all Spirit.

Rebecca has rich ministry experience with church choirs, youth, and has served as a hospice Chaplain.  She lives and thrives in Granby, CT.

First Church Choir - Wednesday night rehearsals from 7:30 - 9pm.   Questions?  Email Rebecca at RDBrownfirsthartland@gmail.com or text her at 352-745-6644

First Church has been blessed with an amazing gift!  A Steinway Grand has been donated to our church and music program by Judy Burhans, a longtime church musician previously serving at First Church Granby. We are sooo grateful to her for this extremely generous donation.  Rebecca Brown, our new music director is a professional concert pianist and can't wait to bring her music to the church - now, on a Steinway Grand!  We are so blessed!
