New Renaissance Singers invites you to join us for our 2017 Winter Choral Concert “Remembering Decembers”!

Our director, Molly J. Webster, has programmed a wonderful mix of sacred and secular music to help you celebrate the season! We’ll be kicking off the performance with Thomas Morley’s madrigal “Lirum Lirum”, followed by classic favorites such as Vittorio’s O Magnum Mysterium and Javier Busto’s Ave Maria. We’ll wrap up the concert with seasonal favorites like O Holy Night, and put a new twist on Jingle Bells and I’ll Be Home for Christmas.

Before and after the concert, you’ll be able to purchase raffle tickets to win a gift basket filled with some great local treats to help you unwind from the holiday season, including wine, music, massage, and more! We’ll also be hosting our annual post-concert Christmas Cookie Sale — Save yourself some baking and grab a box or plate of cookies to take to your next holiday gathering!

Suggested $10 donation 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!
