Lincoln Festival Chorus
The Lincoln Festival Chorus, now in its 31st season, is a part of the Lincoln Arts Festival, founded in 1980, which offers a variety of musical and poetry events in the Boothbay Harbor area each summer. The chorus is a nonauditioned group composed of community singers and includes summer residents of the Boothbay Harbor region. It is led by Dr. Anthony Antolini, director of the Bowdoin College Chorus, Down East Singers and the Rachmaninoff Choir.
In 2017, the featured work will be Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms. The choir will also perform an historical progression of American composers' works from Supply Belcher and William Billings to Randall Thompson, Samuel Barber, Myron Roberts and Duke Ellington. The performances will be accompanied by organist Sean Fleming and harpist Virginia Flanagan.
Performances are Friday, August 18 and Sunday August 20, at 7:30 pm, at the Congregational Church of Boothbay, Harbor.
