    Sing the beautiful Franz Schubert “Mass in G major, D.167” with the Lincoln Festival Chorus this summer! Under the leadership of Artistic Director Linda Blanchard who is assisted by pianist and organist Sean Fleming, now is the perfect time to join Lincoln Festival Chorus as we celebrate our 44th season.

    Composed in just a week in 1815 when the composer was 18, the “Mass in G” features the charming melodic writing and charm for which Schubert is known. The work will be performed on Friday and Sunday, Aug. 9 and ll. Don’t miss this chance to sing this masterpiece! For more information, contact Lincoln Arts Festival at 207-633-3913 or

    Several short pieces will also be featured on the program, including songs made popular by The Platters, including “My Prayer,” and “Red Sails in the Sunset,” and more.

    Lincoln Festival Chorus rehearses every Monday night from 7 to 9, starting June 17 through Aug. 5, at the Congregational Church of Boothbay Harbor, 125 Townsend Ave., Boothbay Harbor.

    Past concerts for the group have included the Mozart “Coronation” Mass in 2023, Haydn “Lord Nelson” Mass in 2022, a highly acclaimed performance in 2019 of the Mozart “Requiem,” and the Faure “Requiem” in 2018.
