Music at MRUC
Music is a vital part of the Manor Road spiritual community. Our Music Director, Tom Marcaccini, is extraordinarily gifted in deepening and enriching the day’s message through instrumental music, congregational song, and choral and other vocal offerings.
This is a chance for the younger members of our community to join together in song. The children sing during worship 2 – 3 times during the year, and rehearse in their own worship space in advance of each presentation. Contact Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For adult singers of all vocal ranges, the Senior Choir provides regular opportunities for members to explore various musical expressions of the Spirit in worship. They support congregational singing, and along with soloists and other musicians, provide inspiring music for worship. Contact our music director, Tom, at email@example.com for more details.
MRUC is always looking for new members! No previous experience is necessary and instruction on Handbell technique will be provided. Contact our music director, Tom, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Our Worship Band, named “Cornerstone,” include contemporary as well as traditional worship music in our regular Sunday morning service. They lead us on instruments including piano, guitar, bass guitar, and violin. Guest musicians throughout the year include a harpist and trumpet. Contact our music director, Tom, at email@example.com for more details.

This song is a nod to the working poor of east-end Toronto, past and present, inspired by my own memories of growing up in the neighbourhood known as Leslieville. Visit www.borderlinemusic.ca.
Manor Road United Church is on the traditional home of the Huron-Wendat Nation, Metis Nation of Ontario, Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation and Six Nations of the Grand River. May we be connected to the heartbeat of the Spirit as one.
