BRUNSWICK – “It’s A Grand Night for Singing,” the fifth annual Oratorio Chorale spring recital, will begin at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 6, in the United Methodist Church on Church Road.

This lively and varied evening will showcase some talented midcoast Maine singers. More than 30 singers will be featured, in a variety of solo and ensemble pieces.

In addition to the depth and breadth of the vocal talent and performance skills, the Oratorio Chorale recitals are noted for their interesting repertoire.

For this one, familiar classics by Bach, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Schubert are in the mix along with popular songs by Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim and Richard Rodgers.

Lesser-known compositions will also take the listener beyond the standards.

Judith Hunt Quimby, a faculty member of the School of Music at the University of Southern Maine, will be the accompanist. She also directs the Portland Community Chorus and is chorus master of the Portland opera Repertory Theater

Audience and singers will have a chance to visit at a reception during the intermission.
