ROCKPORT — The Camden Hills Regional High School Chorale, Chamber Singers and Treble Choir present their Spring Choral Concert Tuesday, May 17, at 7 p.m. in the Strom Auditorium, 25 Keelson Drive. The ensembles, directed by Kimberly Murphy and accompanied by Matthew Mainster, perform a variety of selections, featuring many soloists and guest artists.

Of special note will be Bangor Symphony Orchestra percussionist Nancy Rowe accompanying the Treble Choir on xylophone in its performance of Mark Patterson’s “Edges of the Night” — a song that highlights the plight of refugees. Rowe will also play the djembe to accompany two selections by the Chorale and Chamber Singers. A guest string quartet — Sarah Glenn (violin), Heidi Karod (violin), Linda Vaillancourt (viola) and April Reed-Cox (cello) — will accompany the Chamber Singers’ performance of “Deep Peace” written by Elaine Hagenberg and Ola Gjeilo’s “The Ground.” Both selections incorporate the theme of peace, with Ola Gjeilo’s composition ending with the lyrics “Dona Nobis Pacem” (grant us peace).

Additional themes concurrent in many of the selections are that of youth, and hope through music. Young singers in grades 3 through 8 will join the high school Chorale in a stirring rendition of “Rise Up” — a song made popular by Andra Day. The performance will feature many soloists including Sara Ackley, Alyssa Lewis, Lenigha White, Noelle Delano and young singers Rowan McWilliams and Nathan Gomez. The string quartet will return to accompany the Treble Choir in a selection that highlights the beauty and hope of music in “Alway Something Sings.” With text by Ralph Waldo Emerson and music by Dan Forrest, this selection also highlights guest singer Lydia Day. The theme of hope for our youth continues with the Kyle Pederson composition of “Remember the Children.” This song will feature four soloists: Audrey Leavitt, Aly Shook, Lucas Marriner-Ward and Daniel McGregor.

Seniors Audrey Leavitt and Aly Shook will return to the stage as they lead the student a cappella ensemble, Fortissima, in three selections. This extra-curricular student-led ensemble has been rejuvenated under their direction and is flourishing in dedication and musicality. Of special note will be a Fortissima performance of Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers,” arranged by junior Grace Yanz.

Throughout the evening, many soloists will be featured, including Joshua Kohlstrom, Iselin Bratz, Nora Finck, Abigail Kohlstrom, Trey Freeman, Grace Yanz, Jocelyn Serrie, Charlotte Thackeray, Charlotte Nelson, Sophie Ryan, George Bickham, Maren Kinney, Alyssa Bland, Isabella Kinney and flautist Cabot Adams.

During this joyful concert, student achievements in the MMEA District III and All State music festivals will be recognized, along with a tribute to outstanding senior musicians. The concert is free to the public. As of this writing, masks, for both performers and audience members, are optional.
