The University of Southern Maine Chamber Singers honored Veterans with patriotic songs and hymns atop the Portland Head Light on Thursday, November 11, 2021. Professor Nicolás Dosman, the director of choral studies at the Osher School of Music at USM, and his a cappella singers selected six carefully-chosen songs to honor veterans. The group reached out to director Jeanne Gross of the Museum at Portland Head Light to see if they could sing near the top of the headlight. Gross supported the idea and helped facilitate the performance.
