WATERVILLE — The Colby-Kennebec Choral Society invites all interested singers to join it for its fall program, “Canções D’Além Mar,” or “Songs from Across the Sea.”

Rehearsals are scheduled to start on Tuesday, Sept. 12, and will continue on Tuesdays, 7-9 p.m., in the new Gordon Center for the Performing Arts at Colby College on Mayflower Hill Drive.

The performance will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18, in the Gordon Center’s 300-seat concert hall.

The chorus will sing nine works, each from a different land and in a different language. The centerpiece of the program is Argentinian composer Ariel Ramirez’s Misa Criolla.

The Choral Society is always seeking new singers. Tenors and basses are especially welcome, and the members encourage high school students of all voice parts to join. Neither prior experience nor an audition is needed. The ability to read music is helpful, but not required. Learning tracks and printed scores will be provided.

For more information, contact the director, Dr. Néviton Barros, at nbarros@colby.edu or 207-859-5680.
