Midcoast Community Chorus Kicks Off Fall Semester

Midcoast Community Chorus welcomes all voices and levels of abilities, ages 12 years and up to sing this fall. Led by chorus founder and artistic director, Mimi Bornstein, the chorus rehearses weekly on Mondays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at John Street United Methodist Church in Camden. The semester will culminate in a concert at the Strom Auditorium in Rockport Jan. 12, 2014.

Registration for this fall semester is on Sept. 16 from 5 to 6:15 p.m. before the first rehearsal, and again on Sept. 23. Visit the MCC website, for early registration instructions.

The season promises to be full of new opportunities to sing: along with the regular Monday Night Chorus, there will be an intermediate chorus, monthly community sings, and music reading classes.

A tiered level of programming has been in Bornstein's plans since the chorus's inception. "I have always been committed to offering a place for those who were told they 'couldn't sing,' and MCC has been that place for hundreds of people," Bornstein said. "While we will always have a place for the new, perhaps shy, singer to come find their voice in a nurturing community, we must also continue to offer programming for those who have been singing long enough to have the confidence, skill and desire to move to the next level of artistic challenge. "

Midcoast Community Chorus is a non-auditioned, multi-generational chorus established in 2008 that consistently draws 120 to 140 singers each semester. The last six chorus concerts have been complete sellouts, confirming that Bornstein is not alone in her philosophy that music builds community.

"When we sing we change who we are, and when we change who we are, we change the world; one song at a time," Bornstein said.
