Sheepscot Valley Chorus Welcomes New Singers
The Sheepscot Valley Chorus begins their 37th season with a potluck supper at 7:00 PM with a rehearsal following, on Tuesday, September 12 at the Wiscasset Congregational Church on Route 1. With a long history of community music making, the Chorus welcomes and encourages new singers to join us. Singers wishing to participate may call director Linda Blanchard at 207-380-2768, or simply come to the first rehearsal, voice at the ready.
The major work this fall John Rutter’s stirring “Gloria” for mixed voices with brass, percussion and organ.
John Rutter was born in England in 1945. He studied at Cambridge, and in 1981 he established the Cambridge Singers. In 1974, Rutter visited the United States at the invitation of choral musician Melvin “Mel” Olson and conducted the premiere of his cantata “Gloria” in Omaha, NB.
The second half of the concert will have a mixture of classical works and lighter holiday fare, including traditional carols sung by the chorus and audience accompanied by brass and organ.
Sheepscot Valley Chorus is directed by Linda Blanchard and accompanied by Sean Fleming, both of Damariscotta. The Chorus will perform their concert Sunday, December 3 at 3:00 p.m. in at the Congregational Church of Boothbay Harbor. Please join us!
