A cappella music celebrating the joys and mysteries of life.

Inspired by Chilean Nueva Canción pioneer Violeta Parra’s song Gracias a la Vida, the Schoodic Summer Chorus sings music of a multitude of times and places, with a focus on the poetic passion of the Spanish language.

The Schoodic Summer Chorus is an a cappella community chorus founded and directed by Anna Dembska and sponsored by Schoodic Arts for All.

Anna Dembska has been teaching voice and musicianship for over 20 years, including at New York University and the Metropolitan Opera Guild. She is co-author, with pianist/educator Joan Harkness, of the music education books You’ve Got Rhythm and Piano, Body and Soul. Recent projects include Burnpile, a sound-art collaboration with California artist Bachrun Lomele touring museums, galleries, and flea markets across the US; director and soprano in the Ad Hoc Baroque Consort; Susan Bickford’s collaborative performance (stillness)16 on the Sheepscott River; and Music of a New Frequency, an improvising duo with vocalist Andrea Goodman.
