Join us for our 27th annual spring choral concert on Friday, May 18th at 7pm at the First Congregational Church of Brewer.
This year our Director, Molly Webster, has put together a program filled with old favorites and beautiful contemporary pieces that will shine a little hope in your day, including the gospel works “Unclouded Day” arranged by Shawn Kirchner, and “The Storm is Passing Over” arranged by Barbara W. Baker. We’ll be revisiting old favorites, “Omnia Sol” by Z. Randall Stroope, and “Hope is the Thing With Feathers” by Kenney Potter, (based on the poem by Emily Dickinson). Rounding out the mix will be pieces from Bob Chilcott, Moses Hogan, Steven Foster, Gerald Finzi, and even U2.
We will be raffling off another basket of fabulous local items, gifts and assorted goodies, and the concert will be followed by an ice cream social.
Suggested donation of $10 at the door.

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!
