Join the Schoodic Summer Chorus this year!
The Schoodic Summer Chorus is a multi-generational a cappella communitychorus devoted to nurturing musicianship and community. Our members share a passion for singing beautiful and unusual music. Directed by singer and composer Anna Dembska, the chorus is open to anyone who loves to sing. Concerts include the opening night of the Schoodic Arts Festival on Monday, August 1, and additional performances in Ellsworth and Machias in mid- to late August.
This year we’ll be singing about the beauties and mysteries of the land and sea, with traditional music of Republic of Georgia, Haiti, Africa, Great Britain, and more; composers including Elizabethan master John Dowland, 20th-century French songwriter Charles Trenet, and Maine’s own David Dodson; and lyrics by poets ranging from Shakespeare to Emily Dickinson to Belfast poet laureate emeritus Karin Spitfire.
Rehearsals are on Tuesdays at Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor, 6-9 pm, beginning May 24. To sign up, please contact Schoodic Arts for All. For more information, visit fleap.com/ssc.html ($120.00)
