About Us

Our History:

In the spring of 1991, a small group of musicians from the Bangor area joined together to form The New Renaissance Singers. This small quorum spoke to the need for a chorus with a diversified musical base, one where creativity could be encouraged and nurtured.

Our Mission:

New Renaissance Singers is a well-established, non-audition, multigenerational chorus serving Central and Eastern Maine. We welcome all who share a love of singing, and believe that in uniting our voices in song we can nurture a love of music in our community and beyond.

Our Members:

IMG_2161Our community chorus is comprised of singers from many different ages and occupations, who join together with a love and enthusiasm for singing and performing. We always welcome new members of varying skill level who love to sing and learn about music. Contact us if you would like to join!

New Renaissance Singers is a community choir and we are not affiliated with any religious organization. We are directed by Molly Webster, and our amazing accompanist is Dora Rexrode. The group is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

  1. O my goodness! I was on FaceBook and discovered you exist! I was an alto with the group back in 1991 until I moved out of the area and I always wondered what happened to NRS. It’s wonderful to see you’re around (and even a 501(c)3 now!) still sharing music with the Bangor Area. Many kudos to all of you!
