The Music Ministry at Unity presents a varied palette of musical offerings to enhance the worship experience. Our music team provides inspiring and reflective songs at each Sunday service. The congregation participates by singing group songs and hymns, meditation responses and The Peace Song. Our music fills the room with energy each Sunday. The vocal selections are carefully chosen each week to coincide with the Sunday message.
Tom Keyes, Music Director
Tom started with Unity of Orange County as the Sound Engineer in April of 2004 after his wife casually mentioned they were looking for one. Since then his involvement with the church has grown to include Singer/Soloist, Audio/Visual Engineer, one-time Webmaster, as well as Music Coordinator and now Music Director. Outside of Unity, Tom has spent years as a vocalist and performer on various stages and various projects, from schools to community theater to the contemporary a cappella scene.
He credits Unity of Orange County with bringing about the renaissance of his life: Through contacts he made from working at Unity, and a continuing study of the principles that Unity teaches each week, he returned to performing late in 2004 after a 7-year hiatus and has continued his personal growth since then to include the founding of the all-vocal band Frequency in 2009.
In 2009 Tom was asked to take on the role of finding and bringing in soloists to perform at services — a role he dearly loves because it allows him to tap into his network of talented friends and work with them further. Unity has hosted TV and film stars as well as some of the best vocal talent in Southern California. Combined with the best instrumentalist team in the land, the music at Unity of Orange County has to be experienced live.
Tom lives in Aliso Viejo with his wife Angie and his three children: Michelle, Autumn, and Gavin. During the week, he is the IT Director of a local insurance general agency, as well as the director of Frequency and a board member of the Contemporary A Cappella Society. He is eternally grateful for the blessing that Unity continues to be in the lives of his family.
