Notes:Sheepscot Chorus begins rehearsals on Tuesday, February 1 at 7:00 PM, at the First Congregational Church in Wiscasset. Our featured work will be Paul Winter’s “Missa Gaia,” with other fun pieces on the program. We hope you’ll join us!
Our performance of “Missa Gaia” celebrates the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day. Written by Paul Winter in 1981, the work was dedicated to St. Francis, the patron saint of ecology. In “Missa Gaia,” Winter created a work both ecumenical and ecological, embracing all the voices of the Earth. The piece will feature a children’s choir, African percussion, bass, cello, guitar, organ, piano, and soprano sax, along with animal calls. Sheepscot Chorus is directed by husband-and-wife team Linda Blanchard and Sean Fleming of Damariscotta.
