June has exploded with dates after a disturbingly quiet year and a half. Before Covid, having three gigs in a month might be considered a bit light weight, but that was then. It is refreshing and exciting to have some things to let people know about! Below is a brief description of three events coming up this month. I suppose each of these should demand individual posts, but because I’m out of practice and it’s been long enough that I have to teach myself how to do this again, I’m going for the short and sweet. You can always get in touch with me for more details!
THE MAINE SQUEEZE ACCORDION ENSEMBLE has two events:
June 12 Outdoors at the Titcomb Ski Lodge, off Morrison Hill Rd. in West Farmington on June 12 at 6:30. https://www.artsfarmington.org/events-1/maine-squeeze
June 19 Ultimate Park Games at Library Park in Bath. Bring a picnic and join us for a day of fun for all ages! Thanks to a Maine Public Library Fund* Grant, the Children’s Room has purchased an amazing array of outdoor games for ultimate outdoor fun! 890 Washington St., Bath, ME 10:30am-2pm https://www.patten.lib.me.us/event/ultimate-park-games/
The big deal event for me this month is that I will be playing the tenor banjo on the Kurt Weill overture for The Threepenny Opera, entitled Kleine Dreigroschenmusik, with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra as their final concert for this season. It’s a concert that features the wind section of the orchestra and this overture is on the program.
Rehearsals and filming take place this weekend June 4-6 and the concert will be available digitally beginning June 18 for 30 days. You can go to this link for tickets:https://www.bangorsymphony.org/show/winds-brass/
Le Bon Truc is still very much alive but we don’t have any solid dates quite yet so keep your eyes peeled. It will happen!
