NRS FALL 2018 FB HEADER

It’s that time of year again! Members new and old are welcome to join us for the beginning of our 2018 rehearsal season. Love to sing? Come and check out our first couple of rehearsals and see if New Renaissance Singers is the group for you!

Our director, Molly Webster, has been working hard to put together another fabulous program for our December concerts! Just a few of the songs we’ll be learning include Christmas Lullaby by John Rutter, African Star Carol by Michael Barrett, Silent Night by Pentatonix, and Gloria by David Giardiniere.

We rehearse Thursday evenings from 7-9 through December. We’re excited to begin a new season, and we look forward to seeing you all!

MAINE SUMMER YOUTH MUSIC SENIOR CAMP SCHOLARSHIP

 

We created our student scholarship fund to help foster and grow a love of music and singing in our community. In the last few years, we have donated scholarships to Bangor Area Children’s Choir. This year, we are offering a senior camp scholarship to the Maine Summer Youth Music at UMaine, Orono. High school students in the greater Bangor area are welcome to submit their applications. 

Thank you to everyone who has generously supported NRS and our scholarship fund and made it possible for us to give back to our community. As we continue to grow, we hope to be able to offer several scholarships a year!
