Maine Sacred Music Youth Choir

October 20, 2021

The Maine Sacred Music Youth Choir is an all-state modeled choir committed to curating and promoting the tradition of sacred music amongst young people in Maine.


Members will be expected to practice the pieces either on their own or in a rehearsal group in their area and come to one in-person practice, which will take place the morning of the concert. The students come together to rehearse as a group for hours before the performance, which is free and open to the public. Parts will be available as audio recordings for independent study two months prior to the concert for those who desire to be involved but aren’t able to attend a rehearsal group. Students may be asked to purchase their own sheet music downloads when necessary, but these costs will be kept to a minimum and only on an as-needed basis. Scholarship options are available to anyone and everyone who need them.


Participants are expected to wear all black as concert attire, or as close to all black as possible. The age of participants ranges from 5-18, but more important than age is the ability and interest to both learn the art of choir from professionals and participate in a group. The next slated concert will be around Christmas and the music will be Christmas-themed.


Please feel free to pass on an open invitation to other students who may be interested in being a part of this project. For more information, or to be added to the email list, reach out via email: info@tributeblog.me
