Interested in singing with us? Tapestry Singers is a wonderful mix of professional, highly skilled amateur, and aspiring singers. All voices are welcome. To arrange an informal audition for the upcoming semester, please contact us by August 31, 2021.
Along with the fun of learning new and challenging music together, our members know that we are singing and raising money to benefit deserving students, helping them to further their career in music. The simple process to join includes an informal audition with our Music Director to check voice range and music-reading skills. Our singers have a variety of backgrounds in musical training. We commit to practicing outside the weekly rehearsals to learn our music.Join Tapestry Singers
Here’s what you need to know:
September to December 2021 — Ring Those Christmas Bells!
We are gearing up for rehearsals in person with a wonderful December concert. Guest artists are the Penobscot Bay Ringers. What better way to reconnect and blend our voices?
In planning for our concert program, Beth is choosing pieces that are not overly challenging, just in case we have to modify our rehearsal schedule based on Maine CDC cautions or restrictions.
