5-Points Cluster Music Service

“Exploring the Church Hymnal, SLT” – A Special Music Service

Stoughton is hosting the 5 Points Cluster Shared service, with UU Church of Brockton, First Parish of Canton, Foxboro Universalist Church, Unity Church of North Easton, and Unitarian Church of Sharon.

On February 16, Linda Brookfield will include hymns to touch upon Resilience, Black History Month, and Love. There’ll be a lot of singing! Linda will also share how the hymnal can be used to help in the selection of all the music for the church services.

Linda’s musical background is in piano, voice, and organ, being hired as church organist in her hometown of Plympton at age 15. As a teenager, Linda studied voice with David Blair McClosky in Duxbury. After high school, she followed him to Boston Conservatory.
Linda was hired as Organist and Choir Director at First Parish UU of Stoughton in 1973. In 2000, she left Stoughton and for the next 15 years played at several churches on the South Shore, only to return to Stoughton in 2015. She has sung in several community choruses, including the Old Stoughton Musical Society, often times being a soprano soloist. Solos have included Handel’s Messiah and Brahm’s Requiem.

Linda has three grown children, Jeff, Debbie, and Jon and lives in Carver with her partner, Jim Maiellano.

All are welcome. Nursery care is available for the young ones (or they are welcome to stay in the service).
