Seaglass, by Kennebunk Artist Marilyn Corey

25 Years of Seaglass!

Twenty-Five Years

From Wassail singers to Carmina Burana, we have an exciting array of events planned to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Seaglass Performing Arts.

Wine & Beer Tasting

We kicked off our 25th Anniversary Celebration with a festive evening of fine wines, craft beers, and appetizers at The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport in August. (You can read all about the celebration, and some Seaglass history, in this great article by Duke Harrington for the Kennebunk Post.) Next we celebrated the holiday season with Wassail Christmas concerts in Sanford and Kennebunkport, and now we're looking forward to our most ambitious anniversary project yet, a production of Carl Orff's epic Carmina Burana, scheduled for April at the new Sanford Performing Arts Center. And we have more events planned for 2019. Stay tuned!

Happy Birthday, Lenny!

Join us as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birth with a delightful and varied selection of works by Bernstein and other composers, including selections from West Side Story, Candide, Oklahoma, and more. There will be two performances, the first on Saturday evening, June 2nd, at Christ Church in Kennebunk, and the second on Sunday afternoon, June 3rd, at the Wells High School Auditorium.

An Afternoon of Sacred Music by Bernstein, Lauridsen, and Faure

Our Palm Sunday concert will feature three selections: Faure's Requiem, Morten Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna, and Leonard Bernstein's Missa Brevis in celebration of 100 years since Bernstein's birth. This concert is scheduled for 3:00 pm on Palm Sunday March 25th, at Christ Church on Dane Street in Kennebunk, Maine.

Carmina Burana

Seaglass Chorale is proud to present Carl Orff's masterwork, Carmina Burana, featuring soprano Sierra Marcy, baritone Will Prapestis, and a youth choir made up of students from the Sanford and Marshwood school systems. Carmina Burana is a scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff in 1935 and 1936, based on 24 poems from the medieval collection of the same name. Carmina Burana The first and last movements of the piece are called "Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi" ("Fortune, Empress of the World") and start with the very well known "O Fortuna". Carmina Burana was first staged in Frankfurt, Germany, by the Frankfurt Opera on June 8, 1937, to wide acclaim. Since then, no other Orff composition has approached the renown of Carmina Burana, as evidenced in both pop culture's appropriation of "O Fortuna" and the classical world's persistent programming and recording of the work. In the United States, Carmina Burana remains intensely popular. We hope you can join us for this special event.
