Description

Down East Singers performs choral works in a variety of styles, from Baroque to 21st century. Founded in 1979 by Marion Gray, who passed the baton to Anthony Antolini in 1991, the chorus has established a reputation for inspiring performances of challenging repertoire that includes both well-known masterpieces and seldom-heard compositions. Down East Singers regularly collaborates with the Bowdoin Chorus to form the Rachmaninoff Choir and can be heard on their CD recording of Rachmaninoff's Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, which received critical acclaim in the November 1996 American Record Guide.

Membership in Down East Singers is open to all singers in the community; sight-reading skills are desirable.
