The Brewer School GT Music and chorus department participated in a music workshop with the University of Maine, The Maine Steiner’s, UMO’s all-male a’capella group on Monday, May 19th at the Brewer Community School PAC. Prior to the workshop the Steiner’s performed for the 7th and 5th grade during lunch in the cafeteria.
The Maine Steiner’s, the University of Maine’s premier all-male a’capella group, is comprised of male singers from various musical backgrounds and areas of study. There are currently nine singers in the group, all of whom are members of the larger ensemble called the University Singers. The primary objective of the Maine Steiner’s is to entertain their audiences with a wide range of a’capella arrangements and choreography. However, the Maine Steiner’s are also advocates of increased involvement in the arts among primary and secondary school age children, and they are also crusaders for the preservation of music programs that are threatened by budget cuts. The Maine Steiner’s bring their message with them to children and young adults on semi-annual tours that have stretched across New England, The United States, and the world. Along with their message and their music, the Maine Steiner’s carry with them a rich history.
