The Sheepscot Valley Chorus is beginning preparation for an April performance of Paul Winter’s “Missa Gaia (Earth Mass): A Mass in Celebration of Mother Earth.” All are welcome to join us for our first rehearsal, Tuesday, Jan. 14, 7:00 p.m., Congregational Church, Wiscasset. We’re a friendly group, working to perfect our craft as we enjoy the company of our fellow singers. Come join us!
Our performance of “Missa Gaia” celebrates the 50th 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.
Members of the Chorus welcome and encourage new singers to join us. Those wishing to participate may call director Linda Blanchard at 207-380-2768, or simply come to the first rehearsal.
