The Community Chorus at South Berwick is a group of singers from
over 17 communities who come together for the joy of preparing
excellent choral music, and performing fine concerts in our
communities. The chorus provides dedicated, non-auditioned singers
with the opportunity to enhance their musical knowledge and skills,
while enjoying the fellowship of working with others in this common
musical endeavor. In our 40th season, CCSB continues to bring
outstanding choral music to audiences in seacoast Maine and New
Sing with us! Rehearsals for our December 2014 concerts begin September 8, 2014.

On September 7, 2014, CCSB will join other groups celebrating the birthday of Sarah Orne Jewett. As part of the ongoing
bicentennial year programming in South Berwick, this year’s celebration will be a very special one featuring performances
by the Community Chorus at South Berwick under the direction of Dr. Harry Moon.
The outdoor musical program, beginning at 4PM, will consist of music from Jewett’s era and selected readings from the
poetry, letters, short stories, and novels comprising the author’s literary legacy. The chorus will also present one
unique piece by a contemporary, local composer, Kevin Siegfried, which is set to Jewett’s poem, “Top of the Hill.”
This is one movement in a collection of songs set to Jewett poems, which was commissioned in 2006 by the Community Chorus at South Berwick.
See Celebrating Sarah Orne Jewett page for more information.
Please mark your calendar for our upcoming Winter concert to save these dates.
Concerts are Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 7:30pm at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Newington, NH and Sunday,
December 7, 2014 at 3:00pm at the Our Lady of the Angels Parish Church, 160 Agamenticus Road, South Berwick Maine.
