Chartered in 1989, the local chorus was formed in 1984 and was first called Sugar ‘n Spice. Rehearsals began in the Randolph Methodist Church, under the direction of Peter Perry. Kathy Greason of Hallowell, the current director, said, “Singing in the chorus gives us an opportunity to share our love of music with women of all ages and from all walks of life. During my time with the chorus, singers have ranged in age from 10 to 85, and have included homemakers, students, journalists, retirees, secretaries, nurses, teachers, lawyers, businesswomen, and more. Every rehearsal brings something new. We learn and grow together, and then see the results on the faces of our audiences. It’s very rewarding.”

Other members include bass singer Martha Tait of Whitefield, Donna Ryder of West Gardiner, also a bass, and lead singer Vi Martello of Albion.

Maine-ly Harmony is available to the community for performances and is open to women and girls who would like to try the unique barbershop harmony style. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in Building 205 at Togus VA, Rt. 17. For more information, call 207-582-5523 or 207-293-4779, or visit
