Senior College Chorale

Lila_Nation-1Lila Nation, choir director and French instructor, is starting a Senior College Chorale, open to the experienced singer or the complete novice, able to read music or not. It will run from from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm on Thursdays when classes are in session.

“The idea is to grab a quick lunch and come have fun making music together,” Lila says. Starting in August, there will be a sign-up sheet in the Senior College Office (Room 118) for all those interested. Lila is an extraordinarily gifted choir director (not to mention French teacher), so this should be a wonderful experience.

Welcome to The Senior College at Belfast, where people meet to exchange new ideas, explore classic and contemporary topics and make new friends.

Senior College provides a diverse curriculum of programs, classes and special events for those 50 years and older, along with their spouses or partners. Enjoy subjects ranging from the intellectually challenging to the purely enjoyable. We’re the second largest of the 17 Senior Colleges in the state with more than 500 mid-coast members.

Classes meet every Thursday for six weeks during the fall and spring semesters and for four weeks during a January-February “Winterim” semester.

Take a look at who we are, what we do and why we can’t imagine life without Senior College!
