Quasimodal Chorus Spring Concert

 Camden’s vaunted and venerable Quasimodal Chorus will return to the Camden Public Library for a spring performance on Sunday afternoon, April 2, at 2:00 pm, in the Reading Room. The Quasimodal Chorus will be joined in the performance by The January Men and Then Some and The Mill Street Irregulars. The music will range from challenging Balkan pieces in 7/8 time such as “I Dumaj, Zlato” to  long-time favorites such as James Taylor’s “Lonesome Road.”

The various choruses are made up of overlapping membership. Singers come from all over the midcoast, from Winterport to Waldoboro. Some of the singers have been performing together for more than two decades and their style, blend, and taste in music has been met by enthusiastic audiences at Library concerts over many spring seasons. “We always enjoy and look forward to our Spring concert at the Library,” said Carney Doucette of the Quasimodal Chorus. “The Reading Room is such a gorgeous space for a gathering of voices. We hope you can join us!”

“We have some new music to offer at the concert,” added Susan Shaw. “And we have discovered some unusual treasures in old hymnals and from our friends in other choruses, and we are eager to share them with you.”

Suggested donation of $10 at the door.
