The University of Maine University Singers will perform during two concerts, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10 in Minsky Recital Hall on campus.
Under the direction of Dennis Cox, the group will sing pieces by a variety of composers, including Leonard Bernstein and Beth Wiemann, UMaine music division chair and professor of composition and clarinet. The program will also feature several student musicians, accompanists and conductors.
Members of this select choir come from a variety of academic disciplines; nearly half concentrate in subject areas outside of music. The singers annually perform at multiple concerts on campus, tour New England for a week each spring and perform abroad every four years. Auditions, open to all students, are at the start of each fall semester.
Admission to each performance is $9, or free with a valid student MaineCard. For tickets or disability accommodations, call 207.581.1755. Tickets may also be purchased at the door one hour before the show.
The University Singers will join other UMaine choral groups in the annual Yuletide concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8 in the Collins Center for the Arts.
