Midcoast Community Chorus invites new singers and former chorus members to register for the fall semester, which will culminate in MCC’s 19th concert, “All You Need Is Love,” Jan. 15 at the Strom Auditorium. Singing consistently sold-out concerts, MCC is a 130- voice non-auditioned chorus open to singers of all abilities age 13 and older.

Registration will be held during the first two weeks of rehearsal — Mondays, Sept. 19 and 26 — from 5 to 6:15 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Camden, 55 Elm St./Route 1. Rehearsals are Mondays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

A nationally recognized chorus, MCC recently was featured in Chorus America’s professional journal, The Voice; and in June, MCC’s founder and artistic director Mimi Bornstein was a featured panelist at Chorus America’s annual summer conference. With a mission to “sing as a community for the community,” all who sing with MCC are invited to contribute their voice to its vision statement: “When we sing, we change who we are, when we change who we are, we change the world.” Noted for its diverse programming, repertoire for this group includes songs drawn from cultures, traditions and musical genres from all over the world.

Chorus members will rehearse weekly under the leadership of Bornstein, along with Assistant Director and accompanist Sean Fleming. Opportunities for more experienced singers exist with MCC’s 40-voice Chorale under the direction of Steve Weston; and a 16-voice Chamber Choir under the direction of Bornstein. All choral groups will sing in the January concert.

Active since 2008, MCC performs two concerts a year. Each spring, MCC presents a benefit concert for a local nonprofit organization doing good and important work in the community. To date, MCC has raised more than $75,000 for these organizations.

Registration will takes place in the church’s Fellowship Room. Parking adjacent to the church can be accessed from both Elm and Pearl streets. A semester fee of $80 covers costs of music and rehearsal space. Scholarships and payment plans are available. For more information, call 975-0582 or visit mccsings.org.
