Join us on Saturday, December 14th at 7pm for our annual winter concert! Our beloved long-time accompanist Dora Rexrode has retired, and we’re breaking in our new accompanist, Lynette Dancoes, with some fantastic music this season! Our program opens with selections from Vivaldi’s Gloria. Along with Vivaldi, we’ll be performing a collection of seasonal favorites, from Thomas Morley and Tchaikovsky, to Purifoy, and more.
Stay after the concert for snacks, drinks, and our annual Christmas Cookie sale! We’ll also have a fabulous gift basket of goodies to raffle off! See you there!

Join New Renaissance Singers as we unite in song for our 26th Annual Spring Choral Concert!
This season’s program “United In Song”, arranged by our Director, Molly J. Webster, features a walk through the history of American composers from Steven Foster to the more contemporary works of Jay Althouse and Maine’s own Andrew Hirst. The theme expands to include works from outside influences such as the Beatles and Leonard Cohen, and songs of peace and unity.
Before and after the concert, there will be a silent auction of items donated by varied talents and services of our members, from a picnic basket with wine, to massage, art and handmade items, with funds raised to benefit New Renaissance Singers and our music scholarship fund. Refreshments will be provided after the concert, so feel free to hang out with us, have a snack, and bid on some great stuff!
Don’t miss out! We’re raffling off this incredible music themed quilt hand made by our very own Nancy Averill! This quilt is huge! Perfect for a queen size bed, but fits a king size pretty well, too.
Raffle tickets are $5 each or three for $10, and will be on sale at our Bucksport and Brewer concerts, or you can contact us through our Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to purchase them! The drawing will be held after our Brewer concert on December 16th!
Join us and be a part of our year-long celebration of 25 years of making music together!
For our spring concert season, we are bringing you a beautiful mix of songs of hope and joy, with music ranging from contemporary to folk and classical. Included in the spring repertoire are pieces from Beethoven, Brahm and Mozart, mixed in with a little Pete Seeger and U2, and a collection of pieces based on the works of poets like Edna St. Vincent Millay and Emily Dickinson.
We are exceptionally excited to unveil a song specially commissioned to celebrate our silver anniversary. This contemporary choral piece was created for us by UMaine alumnus Andrew Hirst. “Everyone Sang” is based on the poem by Siegfried Sassoon, written at the end of World War I.
