Quoddy Voices is gearing up for its fall season, with rehearsals beginning on Monday, September 12, at Eastport Arts Center. Concerts are scheduled for November 18 and 20. The musical selections have been chosen to celebrate a season of thanksgiving as well as the upcoming feast day of St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music. “It’s a celebration of the earth, the harvest, and the power of song,” writes John Newell, director.
Featured works will be selections from Henry Purcell’s “Ode on St. Cecilia’s Day”, a set of works by the African-American composer Florence Price, and choral classics by Randall Thompson and John Rutter. 
The chorus will continue the Covid protocols from last spring: vaccinations and the use of singers’ masks will be required.   
Quoddy Voices welcomes new singers, with no audition required. For more information about joining please contact director John Newell prior to the first rehearsal at jnewell384@gmail.com or (207) 214-7302. 
Rehearsals will be held on Monday evenings at 7 pm at the Eastport Arts Center, with a dress rehearsal on Wednesday, November 16.
