Sing With Sheepscot Chorus!
Sheepscot Valley Chorus invites you to sing with us as we begin rehearsals for our spring semester on Tuesday, January 19, 7:00 pm at the First Congregational Church in Wiscasset. The Chorus will be preparing music of English composer Benjamin Britten, including his joyfully exuberant Te Deum in C and the beautiful and mystical “Rejoice in the Lamb,” which sets the poetry of Christopher Smart. We’ll also explore songs of the seaside and springtime. Come join in the fun, meet friends new and old, and help us make beautiful music!
Performances are on Saturday April 9 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, April 10 at 3:00 pm. in Newcastle. Continuing our tradition of supporting local youth, the program also will highlight the talents of three high school students, recipients of the annual Sheepscot Valley Chorus Music Scholarships.
Sheepscot Valley Chorus has been singing in Midcoast Maine for over 35 years, and is led by director Linda Blanchard and accompanist Sean Fleming, both of Damariscotta. Recent concerts include last season’s acclaimed performances of Mendelssohn’s Elijah and Vivaldi’s Gloria. For more information, please visit our website at www.sheepscotvalleychorus.org or call Linda Blanchard at 380-2768.

Sheepscot Valley Chorus Mission Statement
The mission of the Sheepscot Valley Chorus is to provide opportunities for amateurs who like to sing, and to perform for audiences who share that love of music. There are no auditions. All that is needed to be a member is the enjoyment of singing. We encourage young musicians to participate and offer scholarships once a year to three students, one from each of our local high schools. The Chorus is committed to the classics as well as contemporary, Broadway, Gospel, and premiere performances of new works. We invite you to join the Sheepscot Chorus!
