What a great year 2019

Welcome to a new year.  The Mainely Music Chorus had a great year in 2019.  We became one of the first choruses in the North East to become a mixed group.  With this brought in a great deal of new talent, and depth to the group.  With the addition of female vocals, we are getting a much fuller, and richer sound for our performances.   This has also allowed the group to tackle some new songs with a higher degree of difficulty. 

New Members

The Mainely Music Chorus is now stronger than ever with the addition of seven women to the  chorus with strong singing skills. The Barbershop Harmony Society has relaxed their qualifications to  become full members of the Barbershop  Harmony Society. We welcome their talents and singing skills.

Looking For Harmony Singing

The Mainely Music Chorus put out the invition for all men of good charcter who like to sing.  With that in mind the guys in the photo above showed up to experience what four part harmony was all about. Guest were involved right off the starting block, learning a new song with the regular chorus members called "I've Been Working On The Railroad." It was amazing how fast the members and guest sang through the song with good accuracy and sound by using the chorus song learning method.

If you enjoy music and like to sing,then why not give us a call and share your voice in making music.

See you at Bangor Parks and Rec Building, at 647 Main Street, Bangor, Me. at 7:00 pm every Monday night.

Avalon Village- A visit with Song

Calling on Your Neighbors with a Song.

The Mainely Music Chorus recently made a visit to entertain the good folks at Avalon Village in Hampden, Me. The MC for the evening concert was none other than our very own Jim Franklin who sings in lead section of the chorus and lives at Avalon. Jim has been a barbershopper for some time now and wanted to share his hobby with his neighbors. A good time was had by all.   

Do We Sing 'Em and How

Do We Sing ‘Em and How

If you’re singing “Bill Grogens Goat” or “Who Threw the Overalls in Mrs. Murphy Chowder,” they will bring out the emotional elements of these two songs for a good laugh to any Baritone, and yes a few tears also. Although these two songs have not been  sung for a while, I’m not sure what brought these two baritones to the level of  uncontrolled  laughter for one, and the other to tears…….or was that from a recent cold?

If you’re not singing with the Mainely Music Chorus then you’re missing out on a lot of fun and camaraderie. Bill and Jim would love to show you how to sing “Baritone.”

See you at Bangor Parks and Rec Building, at 647 Main Street, Bangor, Me. at 7:00 pm every Monday night.
