When we sing,
we change who we are.
When we change who we are,
we change the world.

OUT Maine Selected as Beneficiary of Midcoast Community Chorus Spring Concert
Midcoast Community Chorus (MCC), a vibrant and dynamic multi-generational chorus, invites you to celebrate spring and help support this year’s concert beneficiary, OUT Maine, by attending the MCC spring concert, "Spheres”,  on Sunday, June 16, 7:00 pm at Camden Hills Regional High School’s Strom Auditorium on Rt 90 in Rockport.  

MCC believes that everyone has a voice that deserves to be heard and this year’s beneficiary organization is a perfect match for that vision.  

OUT Maine empowers, supports and educates rural lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth who are at very high risk, especially those who are isolated in our rural communities.  Nine out of ten of these youth are bullied regularly in their schools and communities; LGBTQ youth have three to four times the suicidal thoughts and actions of their heterosexual peers; and they represent 25-40% of Maine’s homeless teens. 

OUT Maine uses a multi-faceted approach to change these realities and replace them with hope and a brighter future:   
Through youth opportunities such as weekly programs, weekend leadership retreats, a statewide Rainbow Ball Weekend and the upcoming Studio Immersion Weekend at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, OUT Maine builds relationships and provides safety, affirmation and hope.
As a result of staff and student trainings and support for Gay/Straight/Trans Alliances, Maine’s schools are safer and more supportive. 
A strong safety net of over 7000 trained and informed health and mental health care providers, school staff, clergy and youth service organizational leaders is available to provide safe haven for LGBTQ youth in Maine’s most rural areas.
More Maine youth remain living at home through OUT Maine’s support and consultation for parents and families.  

More information about OUT Maine can be found at:  outmaine.org

Tickets for the MCC spring concert may be purchased online at www.mccsings.org, or by calling the office at 207-975-0582.  General admission tickets may be purchased in Rockland (Grasshopper Shop), Camden (Clean Bee Laundry) and Belfast (Green Store). Ticket price for general seating is $15, with reserved seating prices $25 and $35.  Everyone is encouraged to purchase tickets early since past concerts have sold out quickly.  For more information, contact the MCC office at  207-975-0582.

New Midcoast Community Chorale to Sing in Three Local Venues

The Midcoast Community Chorale (MCC Chorale) will perform under the direction of Steven Weston in three venues on the upcoming weekend. The theme of the MCC Chorale performance is "I See. I Saw,” The selection of music seeks to explore the many visual experiences in our human lives that are expressed in music, as well as to honor the very individual interpretation of what we see with our eyes, and see with our minds when enhanced by the other senses.

The three local venues are scheduled for the convenience of choral music lovers in the mid-coast area.  Belfast’s Unitarian Universalist Church hosts the first performance of the MCC Chorale Concert, on Friday, May 31, at 7:00 pm, at 37 Miller Street.  The second MCC Chorale Concert will take place  Saturday, June 1, at 2:00 pm, at Rockland Congregational Church, 180 Limerock Street. On Sunday June 2, at 4:00 pm, MCC Chorale will be joined by the Maine Balkan Choir for the fourth annual Maine Choir Fest sponsored by the Friends of Music  at the Congregational Church of Camden, 55 Elm Street.

Each concert at its venue is free and open to the public.  A suggested donation is $10, although all donations will be cheerfully accepted.

 The Midcoast Community Chorale, only recently instituted as an audition-only choir, is an adjunct of the Midcoast Community Chorus and adheres to its mission, ”To sing as a community for the community.” .For more information contact mcclleach@gmail.org. or call 975-0582.
