It is concert time again for the members of the Lake Region Community Chorus. This enthusiastic singing group is made up of fifty-five members from fourteen surrounding towns. They will present a varied program made up of traditional classical pieces, folk songs, spirituals, and a tribute to Cole Porter called, “Let’s Fall in Love.” The performances will be held on May 17, at 7 p.m. and on May 19 at 3 p.m. at the Bridgton Academy’s Twitchell Chapel in North Bridgton.
The LRCC is directed by Jan Jukkola, Susan Stockwell and Dan Allen. The group is accompanied by Carolyn Stanhope and Sara-Sue Schreiber. The program will also include accompaniments by these very talented musicians, Rusty Wiltjer, percussion and Mark Priola, electric bass. They will be joined by instrumentalists from the chorus including Ginny Halligan, flute, Glen Jukkola, violin and Jan Jukkola, clarinet.
The chorus would like to thank the Bridgton Academy for all their help and support and providing them with rehearsal space and a concert venue. They would also like to thank their enthusiastic audiences and local sponsors. The concert is free but donations to help cover music and operating costs will be gratefully accepted. Come and join the Lake Region Community Chorus as they sing into spring. The concert is sure to be remembered long after the final chords are sounded.
