The Maine Music Society is pleased to announce its 2022-2023 season entitled “A Journey of Remembrance and Hope”. Dr. Richard Nickerson will lead the choir in its second season as artistic director as they perform three concerts at the Franco Center in Lewiston.

The popular Battle of the Blends kicks off the season at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 5. After a two-year absence, MMS will once again host this a cappella experience which features Northern Pitch to Barber’s renditions of Nor’ Easter, the Crosstones (Bates College) and Fermata NoWhere (Edward Little High School) to our very own chamber singers from Maine Music Society.

The MMS Choir will kick off the holiday season with “A Season of Celebration,” a family concert that celebrates centuries-old traditions and new musical experiences, at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 10 and 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 11. This program will feature Daniel Pinkham’s “Sinfonia Sacra (Christmas Cantata)” accompanied by brass instruments. The concert will also see the return of the annual song and other holiday favorites.

The March concert, “Memory and Hope,” will feature two major works accompanied by a chamber orchestra. On the program, one of the most popular choral works of the 19th century, “Requiem” by Gabriel Fauré. This show will be dedicated to the memory of the victims of COVID-19.
