The University of Maine at Fort Kent Campus/Community Chorus will present a special evening of music on Sunday, December 14 at 8:00 p.m. in the Fox Auditorium.
The approximately hour-long program will be free to the public and feature the sounds of the season performed by the 20-member chorus, comprised of university students and community members.
In addition to various holiday selections, the chorus is planning a special surprise that will honor UMFK on the occasion of its 125th anniversary.
"We don't want to let the cat out of the bag before the concert. We have a special twist to this year's concert that you have to hear for yourself," said Charles Closser, professor of oral communication and performing arts, and director of the upcoming concert. "I will say that the concert promises wonderful entertainment for the entire family."
In addition to a number of songs sung by the combined chorus, several talented vocalists will be presenting solo numbers, including Scott Voisine, Janet Michaud, Claudette Plourde and Kip Plaisted.
Duets will be performed by Jeanine Haley and Mariella Squire, and also by Closser and Squire.
The UMFK Campus/Community Chorus has existed for the better part of three decades. Since that time, the group has hosted concerts nearly every year.
Members have been preparing for this concert since early September.
