Description

The Maine Music Society Chorale is an auditioned, mixed-voice community chorus based in Lewiston-Auburn. The group's diverse repertoire reflects its desire to advance the cultural heritage of Central Maine, to explore a broad range of musical genres—contemporary, musical theatre, classical, opera, oratorio—and to provide its members with opportunities to experience their love of singing.

The Maine Music Society began with The Androscoggin Chorale, which was formed in Lewiston in 1972 as a community chorus. The Chorale provided amateur vocalists an opportunity to showcase their talents in public concerts that added a new dimension to the cultural life of the Twin Cities. By 1987, with the leadership of director Peter Frewen, the Chorale had attained a level that enabled it to finance and perform Mozart's Requiem with professional soloists and a professional orchestra. In 1991, the Androscoggin Chorale's board of directors recognized authorized the formation of the Maine Music Society as an umbrella organization for the vocal and instrumental groups. A new charter was written and a new volunteer board of directors appointed to guide the ventures of this new regional performing arts organization.
