The Maine Steiners are the University of Maine's oldest a cappella group. They are a group of young men looking to share their love of performing barbershop and a cappella music with their community and the surrounding areas. They believe that you don't have to have studied music, or have any previous knowledge of the art, to be able to enjoy it as much as they do. Being able to share the beautiful tradition of performing has been what's kept them so strong and abled to perpetuate over the last many decades.
Since 1958, The Maine Steiners have released multiple albums, participated in many national and international competitions, traveled overseas, hosted countless high school and middle school music workshops, and earned the acclaim of both their critics and fans.
Over the past 65 years, The Maine Steiners have watched the musical world grow and change. Certain staples within their repertoire cling to their barbershop style roots, and others reflect the ever-changing modern style of music. The Maine Steiners arrange multiple modern popular songs and still perform many hits that were popular in the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s, offering something for every generation.
