Chamber Singers make spring visit

May 12, 2017

Lincolnville — The United Christian Church invites the public to a rare springtime performance by the Mount View High School Chamber Singers Sunday, May 21, at 4 p.m. The concert will be held at the church, 18 Searsmont Road/Route 173 in Lincolnville Center. Doors will open 3:30 p.m.

Best known for their unique Carols in the Round concerts, the Chamber Singers have scheduled this concert to make up for missing their December performance due to icy road conditions. Their Spring Concert will feature an eclectic selection of choral arrangements from Latin text music of the 11th century to a very recent creation wishing all the best that America has to offer to some of the huddle masses yearning to breathe free.

The Mount View High School Chamber Singers, under their long-serving director David Stevenson, is one of the top choral groups in New England. The United Christian Church has enjoyed hosting their performances for more than 20 years.

The church, built in 1821, has its original box pews, balcony and leaded glass windows and is a fitting venue for this event. All are welcome to this special concert and the reception that will follow. There is no admission fee, but donations are welcome and will benefit the Mt. View singers, who also will have CDs for sale. For more information, call Mary Schulien, UCC music director, at 785-3521.
