Open auditions for student singers grades 12 and under. Young singers interested in auditioning should call 780-5003 to schedule an audition time. Some previous choral group experience is recommended.
SMCC provides an opportunity for students from throughout the northern New England region to share their talents in a performance setting that builds confidence and connects them with other students and professional musicians. Part of the University of Southern Maine School of Music’s Youth Ensembles program, the Chorus provides an unparalleled musical experience in all varieties of music from classical orchestrations to jazz ensembles.
Originally formed by USM School of Music faculty member Betty Atterbury, SMCC celebrated many successful years in the Freeport area. Now re-formed in Gorham, it is under the direction of Paul McGovern, a music teacher at Portland High School with more than 20 years of teaching experience. The ensembles are sponsored by Macy’s.
