Greater Freeport Community Chorus "Love's Great Ocean" Spring Concert 2:30 PM Tuttle Road United Methodist Church, 52 Tuttle Road , Cumberland

The Greater Freeport Community Chorus will present its spring concert, “Love’s Great Ocean,” May 6 and 7 in Brunswick and Cumberland.
The 55 singers, residents of more than 15 midcoast towns, are led by Director Virgil Bozeman and accompanied by pianist Kellie Moody. They will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Universalist Unitarian Church of Brunswick, 1 Middle St, and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 7, at the Tuttle Road United Methodist Church, 52 Tuttle Road, Cumberland.
The centerpiece of the concert will be “Heavenly Hurt: Songs of Love and Loss,” a setting of several Emily Dickinson poems composed by Alice Parker. Performing with the chorus will be Karen Jung, principal cellist for the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra and music librarian at Brunswick’s Bowdoin College.
“On the Beach at Night Alone” is a setting by Stephen Chatman of the work of another American poet, Walt Whitman. Two pieces take their text from the Old Testament “Song of Solomon.” They are James McCray’s “Rise Up, My Love, My Fair One” and Joshua Jacobson’s arrangement of the Israeli “Dodi Li.” And in composer Eric Whitacre’s setting of poet Rudyard Kipling’s “The Seal Lullaby,” a mother seal sings her pup to sleep “in the arms of the slow-swinging seas.”
Admission is $10, with a per-family maximum of $25. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
