New Midcoast chorale to sing in local venues

May 20, 2019

MIDCOAST — The Midcoast Community Chorale (MCChorale) will perform under the direction of Steven Weston in three venues from Friday, May 31, through Sunday, June 2. The theme of the MCChorale performance is “I See. I Saw.” The selection of music seeks to explore the many visual experiences in our human lives that are expressed in music, as well as to honor the very individual interpretation of what we see with our eyes, and see with our minds when enhanced by the other senses.

The three local venues are scheduled for the convenience of choral music lovers in the Midcoast area. Belfast’s Unitarian Universalist Church hosts the first performance of the MCChorale Concert on Friday, May 31, at 7 p.m., at 37 Miller St. The second concert takes place Saturday, June 1, at 2 p.m., at Rockland Congregational Church, 180 Limerock St. On Sunday, June 2, at 4 p.m., MCChorale will be joined by the Maine Balkan Choir for the fourth annual Maine Choir Fest, sponsored by the Friends of Music at the Congregational Church of Camden, 55 Elm St.

Each concert at its venue is free and open to the public. A suggested donation is $10, although all donations will be cheerfully accepted.

The Midcoast Community Chorale, only recently instituted as an audition-only choir, is an adjunct of the Midcoast Community Chorus and adheres to its mission, “To sing as a community for the community.” For more information, contact or call 975-0582.
