Midcoast Community Chorus Welcomes Singers to New Season

Midcoast Community Chorus (MCC) welcomes all voices and levels of abilities, ages 12 years and up, to sing in the upcoming spring semester, which begins on February 10. Known for sharing songs of peace, hope, and transformation, MCC is a non-auditioned chorus with a mission “to sing as a community for the community.”

Led by MCC Founder and Artistic Director, Mimi Bornstein, the chorus rehearses weekly on Monday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at John Street United Methodist Church in Camden. Along with regular Monday night chorus rehearsals, there will be additional offerings including an auditioned chorale, monthly community sings, and music literacy classes.

The semester will culminate in a June 14, 2014 concert at the Strom Auditorium in Rockport, with proceeds going to this year’s concert beneficiary, the Knox County Homeless Coalition. Since its founding, MCC has raised and donated more than $50,000 to area non-profit organizations through its benefit concerts.

Registration is from 5:00-6:15 p.m. on February 10 before the first rehearsal, and again on February 17. Or visit the MCC website (www.mccsings.org) for early registration instructions and fee details.

MCC is a non-auditioned, multi-generational chorus established in 2008 that consistently draws 120 to 140 choristers each semester. The last ten MCC concerts have been complete sellouts, confirming that Bornstein is not alone in her philosophy that music builds community and “When we sing we change who we are, and when we change who we are, we change the world… one song at a time.”
