About the Choir
Building on acquired choral skills, the Kennebec Singers, a three-part treble choir, further develop their musicianship through a more advanced program in ear training and sight singing. They concentrate on repertoire of established and varied music, becoming confident and expressive performers in concert several times a year. The Kennebec Singers rehearse weekly at Mast Landing School in Freeport on Mondays from 5:30-7:30pm. One extended Saturday rehearsal per semester is scheduled. Previous choral experience is required.
