Frequently Asked Questions


Where can I find a good used tuxedo?

There are several used clothing stores in Portland and occasionally you’ll find tuxes there.  Or sometimes you’ll find what you want at Goodwill.


 How do I get to the Franco-AmericanHeritageCenter?

The address of FAHC is 46 Cedar Street, Lewiston.  Click here to get a map showing the location.


I have heard that we shouldn’t wear perfume or cologne or scented hair spray for concerts.  Why is that?

Many people are allergic or sensitive to perfumes, making them cough and sneeze or causing difficulty breathing.  Especially during concerts we all want to be able to breathe as well as possible.


What do I do if I have to miss a rehearsal

You should contact your section leader and Mr. Corrie, either by phone or by email, at least a couple hours before the rehearsal.  This helps John plan our rehearsals. 


What time are rehearsals and where?

Rehearsals are usually Thursday evening, 7:00 to 9:30 pm, at Bates College, Lewiston, either at the Olin Arts Center or at Chase Lounge.  See your printed rehearsal schedule for details. 

Occasionally we will have an extra rehearsal on a different day or evening.  John will announce that time and location.


I would like to volunteer to help on one the Chorale’s committees.  What jobs need to be done and how do I get started?

Volunteer jobs that need to be done include:

Distribute posters announcing our concerts
Organize and manage the poster distribution
Clip and file ads, articles, announcements, etc. from newspapers
Help set up and strike risers at our concerts

To get started, just talk to Susan Trask or David Blocher and tell them what you'd like to do.  We welcome your help!  

You can make suggestions about what should be included here.  Let Shelley or Rick know what you think.  

What questions do you have?  Or what do you think others would like to know about the Chorale, about our music, vocal stuff, whatever.
