Gulf Coast Symphony

Inspired by love, we transform ourselves and serve others.

UUCFM leads inclusively to build a more just and sustainable SW Florida community, consistent with our strengths and values. We choose to serve others by building a “Community of Communities”. We accomplish our goals through partnerships with vision-aligned organizations in SW Florida.

In 2020, unfettered by the constraints of a pandemic, we initiated plans with the Gulf Coast Symphony, one of the largest community orchestras, to create “community through music”.  We know that music can build a sense of compassion and community, improve our sense of well-being, and communicate emotion in a powerful way that often words cannot. In the fall of 2020, Gulf Coast Symphony inaugurated the “Music and Arts Community Center” (MACC) on our Shire Lane campus.



Southwest Florida is one of the fasted growing areas in the country and likely for the next 10 years. At UUCFM we reach-out to a growing community through a partnership in music with MACC. Of special interest to us is to provide equitable access to excellent music education and arts experiences for the youth of our community with great focus on underprivileged children county-wide. MACC is a hub (on our campus) where people of all ages can share music and where diversity, expression and self-transformation are the very essence of our UUCFM campus.

Through this music ministry outreach, in an innovative partnership with the Gulf Coast Symphony, we believe that together we can help build a more equitable civic culture.

Testimonials From Members - Why I Became A Unitarian Universalist

Antoinette Brown Blackwell (1825-1921), Unitarian minister.
“Throughout my life, I have addressed issues such as slavery abolition, temperance, and women's rights. In 1902, I helped found the Unitarian Society of Elizabeth, NJ, and served as its minister. In 1920, at age 95, I was the only participant from the 1850 Women's Rights Convention, in Worcester, MA, to see the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote.”
