The Lake Region Community Chorus is proud to present its seventh annual Holiday Concert which will take place in the Twitchell Chapel at the Bridgton Academy in North Bridgton. The concerts are scheduled for Friday, December 6 at 7p.m. and Sunday, December 8 at 3 p.m. This enthusiastic choral group is made up of fifty-five singers from fourteen surrounding towns including Windham and Raymond. They will present an exciting program that is made up of songs of many different styles and genres.
The concert will be a joyous celebration of pieces that express the promise and meaning of the season. Some singers will perform three songs from Benjamin Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” and the CUKES (Church Ukulele Strummers) will accompany the song, “Mele Kalikimaka” on their ukuleles. The “Hallelujah Chorus” will be sung with audience participation. The program will include accompaniments by Rusty Wiltjer, percussion, Mark Priola, electric bass, Ginny Halligan, flute, Pam Ward, guitar/recorder, and Glen Jukkola, violin.
The LRCC is directed by Jan Jukkola, Susan Stockwell and Dan Allen and accompanied by Carolyn Stanhope and Sara-Sue Schreiber. The chorus would like to thank the Bridgton Academy for all their help and support and our Corporate Donor, Norway Savings Bank for their generous donation. They would also like to thank their enthusiastic audiences and local sponsors. Donations to help cover music and operating costs will be graciously accepted. Come and let the Lake Region Community Chorus sing in the holiday season and fill your heart with joyful music and song.
