Harmony Concert To Benefit
Four Bates College musical acts will be featured in the final Cabin Fever fundraiser concert to be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 11
at the Turner Center Community Universalist Church on Route 117 in Turner, across from the Gazebo. It is a musical event to benefit the Turner Public Library and the Music for Mavis Gazebo on the Green.
Turner Library and Gazebo
Three a capella groups, The Deansmen, The Merrimanders, and The Crosstones, will delight audiences with tight harmonies and inventive arrangements of songs.
Joining them on the bill is Chase the Fiddlers, an acoustic ensemble playing traditional New England, Celtic, and French-Canadian dance music led by the well-known Greg Boardman, who teaches Applied Music at Bates College.
"With this concert" says Turner Public Library Trustee Anthony Shostak, "we provide popular entertainment consistent with small town living, and a chance to help the local Library. Unaccompanied harmony singing is widely popular, and has been a tradition for generations."
Paula Anderson, founder of the Music for Mavis Community Gazebo named in honor of her mother, says "These groups are top-notch. We are deeply grateful that they will be sacrificing their time and donating their skill and passion to help us."
There is no set fee for admission to the concert. "This is a fundraiser to assist the Library in meeting the rising costs of providing services, and to help the Gazebo," said Shostak, "so we hope those who attend will be mindful of how much a concert in Lewiston or Portland might cost and be generous with their donations."
