SKOWHEGAN —The Skowhegan Community Chorus recently had its first concert of the 2014 spring season at All Saints Episcopal Church, Malbon’s Mill Road.

The concert featured a mix of music from sacred songs with driving rhythms to bawdy drinking songs that one hears at a pub when the band has already gone home. The chorus is directed by Kenneth Martin of Skowhegan and accompanied by Randy Salisbury, also of Skowhegan.

The concert was part of an ongoing series, Rebels With A Cause, at the Episcopal Church which has monthly concerts to promote a local charity or other worthy cause.

The chorus is composed of approximately 20 members from the greater Skowhegan area. Members come from as far away as Bingham, Madison, Harmony and Norridgewock. The group meets spring and fall, with concerts in early May and December. There are no auditions required to join the chorus, just the willingness to come to rehearsals and practice.

The next concert will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday at Skowhegan Federated Church.
