Concerts & Recitals

Music Performance at First Unitarian

Our facilities offer a beautiful environment for musical offerings of all kinds. In the past we have hosted choral groups, orchestras, student recitals, and bands of many different genres.

IMG_2348Our Sanctuary seats up to 400 people, and has a state-of-the-art audio-visual system which can accommodate the need for multiple microphones, video projection, and audio recording of your event. We have a grand piano that is available for use by special arrangement only. The piano is kept tuned. The church may consider a request for additional tuning by our tuner only.

There is an audio system available, as well as an electronic piano.  Because of the availability of a full kitchen, it is ideal for events where there will be refreshments.

Please see our list of rates and fees for more information, and contact the Church Administrator at or 505-884-1801 to schedule your event.

UU Coffeehouse Series

The UU Coffeehouse Series was created for musicians that either don’t want to rent 1978326_10206279514336800_8457099804871430593_othe space outright, or can’t afford to do that. We respect how difficult it can be to make a living as an artist, and want to offer an affordable option for performance and a way to increase your audience in our region.

Our Social Hall, which seats 200 people, is the home to this series. First Unitarian splits the door with the artist, and we provide volunteers to setup and break down the audience space, sell tickets and concessions, and provide any additional facility support artists might need.
