Seaglass Chorale is excited to extend a call for singers and performers to transform our plans into reality as we produce Seaglass Wassail, to celebrate the shortest day of the year with music of the Solstice, a Mummers play, and dance! The ethos of the chorale is that if you would like to sing, please come and join us; no audition is needed just the desire to share in community.
We rehearse from 6–7PM every Thursday beginning on September 8 at St. David’s Episcopal Church, Rte. 1, Kennebunk. The final shows would be on Friday evening December 2 and Saturday afternoon December 3. More information can be found on our website at www.seaglasschorale.org
