PORTLAND, ME – On December 10th, 2020, Sea Change Chorale will present its 3rd Annual Share The Warmth event to raise funds to purchase winter clothing in support of Preble Street. This year’s virtual sing-along will be presented on Zoom at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, December 10th. Seasonal songs, poetry, and other works appropriate to the holiday season and suitable for the whole family will be showcased. We invite you to make a contribution for Preble Street via our Venmo or PayPal account or by check sent to us. Preble Street asks that we not collect winter clothing this year but provide monetary contributions that support their work. Please go to our website: https://www.seachangechorale.org/ Thursday, December 10th for the Zoom link which will be posted that morning. We invite you to arrive at 6:45PM to visit, chat, and get settled. There will be tech support throughout the event.
Prior to COVID-19, Sea Change Chorale held Share The Warmth concerts in front of Renys on Congress St. at the December First Friday Art Walk in Portland. Festive holiday musical selections were featured while donations from passers-by of new adult winter clothing for Preble Street were collected. Over the past two years, Sea Change Chorale has been able to collect over 500 items of winter clothing helping Preble Street meet the needs of those experiencing problems with homelessness.
In addition to the December Share The Warmth concerts, Sea Change Chorale partners annually with a local nonprofit to provide support and build awareness of their mission. This year’s partner, Greater Portland Family Promise, helps homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence by providing housing, meals, case management and community for families experiencing homelessness. Sea Change Chorale’s Benefit Concert for Greater Portland Family Promise, initially planned for April 2020 at Williston-Immanuel United Church, will be rescheduled once it is deemed safe to hold choral concerts again. This will be our sixth benefit concert for a local nonprofit.
Recent (pre-Covid) performances by the 55-member chorus include the First Friday Art Walk, MLK Dinner hosted by the NAACP, and the Annual Benefit Concert. For more information: seachangechorale.org or find us on Facebook.
