Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor -

BAR HARBOR – The Mount Desert Summer Chorale will begin rehearsals for its 2010 concerts from 7-9:30pm on Wednesday, June 30, at St. Saviour’s Church, 41 Mt. Desert St. in Bar Harbor.

This year’s program, titled “Of Psalms and Kings,” features Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms” and Zimmermann’s “Psalmkonzert.” In addition, there are several shorter works by Parry, Vaughan Williams, and Handel. The Chorale will also perform a setting of the Twenty-Third Psalm written by former MDSC music director George Emlen and Noel “Paul” Stookey, best known for his work as a member of Peter, Paul, and Mary.

The Chorale will present several special events during the month of July, including an open reading of Verdi’s Requiem on July 11. On July 16, members of the Chorale will take part in the Bar Harbor Festival’s performance of Madama Butterfly. During the week of July 19, there will be a master class and recital by soprano Carole FitzPatrick. To conclude the summer, Music Director David Schildkret, in his eleventh season with the Chorale, will conduct the concerts on August 7 and 8 at St. Saviour’s.
