JAN 16 - Maine Steiners @ Village
Event has passed
On Wednesday January 16th at 12:30pm, St. Andrews Village will host a performance by the University of Maine's premier all-male a capella vocal group: The Maine Steiners.
Founded in 1958, The Maine Steiners is the oldest a capella group on campus. As a completely student-run and directed organization, the vocal group consists of about 7-14 men that are auditioned from the much larger campus choir, University Singers. As a touring group, The Maine Steiners act as crusaders for young male singers everywhere. Their goal is to share a love of music and a passion for singing in hopes of inspiring young individuals to pursue a life-long commitment to musical learning and enjoyment.
The name of the group was derived from “The Stein Song” which was a hit sung by famous University of Maine alumni, Rudy Vallee, and has since become the University of Maine’s school song. Over the course of the past 53 years, The Maine Steiners have released multiple albums, participated in many national and international competitions, traveled overseas, and earned the acclaim of both critics and fans. Over the duration of the group’s long and fruitful existence, they have accrued and perfected a vast and diverse repertoire.
The upcoming performance is free; however, for planning purposes we ask attendees to RSVP by calling the Village at 633-0920. Light refreshments will be served.
