Hi there, I'm Brooke Maxwell, the music director for Esquimalt United Church. I think I've been at EUC since...(hmm...oh dear, it's been a while now, let's talk about something else...like, music!) Music is mostly what I do, and at various wonderful places around Victoria I play piano, saxophone, sing, occasionally write musicals, compose underscore for theatre, and sometimes organize family dances, like the Neighbourhood Hootenanny Time Machine. I love Esquimalt, and it is one of the highlights of my week to play music for [and with] the great people at EUC.
Our regular Sunday services start at 10:30 am at the church, but we have an all-ages, non-auditioned, inclusive choir that meets every Sunday, before service, at 9:45 am. The choir is an always expanding, wonderful, welcoming group, that is mostly well behaved. Perhaps you'd fit right in? We'll save you a seat! We also have an eclectic blend of musicians that love to make a joyful noise.
Other musical highlights at our church are the Easter and Christmas services, where we have a live band of some of Victoria's finest [and nicest] musicians joining us. Stay tuned for more!
And...a recent undertaking in the last couple of years has been the all-age family dances in Wheeley Hall, known as the Neighbourhood Hootenanny Time Machine. You can learn more about that event by checking out (joining) the Facebook Group
