Midcoast Community Chorus will present their annual Spring concert “Lift Us Up” on Saturday at 7 p.m., at the Strom Auditorium, Camden Hills Regional High School, on Route 90, in Rockport. Proceeds from the concert will support MCC’s 2017 beneficiary, MCH Meals on Wheels.

The chorus will perform music of different styles and cultures for audiences of all ages under the direction of Steven Weston, interim artistic director, accompanied by Sean Fleming, assistant director and by the musical instrumentation of the MCC house band.

MCH Meals on Wheels is a Rockland-based nonprofit that prepares and delivers meals Monday through Friday to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities. In 2016 volunteer drivers delivered almost 29,000 meals, along with friendly, regular interaction, to 208 individuals unable to do grocery shopping or prepare their own meals.

MCC performs as a 145- member non-auditioned chorus and a 40-voice auditioned chorale. Director Steven Weston said he wants audience members to experience a sense of happiness, and to be lifted up not only by the music, but also by the lyrics.

Following this concert, MCC will have contributed approximately $80,000 to local nonprofits since 2007. MCC’s mission is to “sing as a community for the community.”

Tickets are available at mccsings.org, as well as Clean Bee Laundry in Camden, The Grasshopper Shop in Rockland and The Green Store in Belfast. Ticket prices are $15 for general admission seating, with reserved seating prices at $25 and $30. For more information, contact: (207) 975- 0582 or email www.mccassist@gmail.com.
