The Maine Music Society Chamber Singers is a group of about 20 singers, all members of the Androscoggin Chorale. It was formed in the spring of 2013 as a way of expanding the offerings of the Maine Music Society to include smaller venues outside of the regular MMS seasonal concerts. The Chamber Singers performs a cappella selections of varying styles, including (but not limited to) madrigals, early American songs, art songs of various kinds, and modern popular tunes. The first season featured a concert at Cumston Hall in Monmouth, an appearance at the Maine Music Society Wine Tasting, and a performance for the 25th anniversary event of the Lewiston Knights of Columbus. The Chamber Singers is conducted by MMS music director John Corrie, who also sings with the group.
