Maine Music Society presents annual Christmas Concert

Led by Artistic Director John Corrie, the MMS Chorale rehearses for their annual concert with accompanist Bridget Convey.

The Maine Music Society will present its annual Christmas Concert on Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 10 at 3 p.m. at the Gendron Franco Center in Lewiston.  New this year, the program will also include music from the traditions of Chanukah, the Jewish celebration of light.

The 60-member Chorale will focus on Christmas music from the United States, including heartwarming arrangements of such favorites as “White Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!” Special guests Rabbi Sruli Dresdner and his wife, Lisa Mayer, of Auburn’s Temple Shalom will join the chorale for memorable Chanukah songs like “O, ir kleyne likhtelekh,” “Hanukah, O Hanukah,” and “I Have a Little Dreidel.” Dresdner and Mayer will also perform traditional Klezmer, the joyous and soulful music of the Eastern European Jews. In keeping with tradition, the concert will end with everyone joining in to sing a round of Christmas carols.
