Quoddy Voices is a community chorus committed to providing singers of all experience levels the opportunity to work together to learn and present quality music from the many choral traditions. We strive to enrich the cultural life of our community by expanding the awareness and appreciation of choral music. Our programs have included classics of the choral repertoire, contemporary works (both “serious” and “light”) and pieces from cultures around the world.
Quoddy Voices was formed in 2014 by a dedicated group of singers hailing from a number of area towns, from Calais to Machias to Campobello. New members are welcome, regardless of experience level; no auditions are required. We present two programs each year. Join us, and enjoy making music with a wonderful group of people!


Founded by John Newell, Quoddy Voices is now directed by Gene Nichols, who formerly taught at the University of Maine at Machias and led the Machias Community Chorale. Jane Lanctot, a Lubec resident, is the stalwart accompanist. 

Quoddy Voices welcomes all singers, and does not require an audition. Inquiries about the group may be made to Nichols at
