A Celebration of Music, Art, and the Evening Sky
On Friday, June 23rd at 7 PM, the Solstice String Quartet will present a multimedia performance pairing two classical masterworks with artwork created by Miller School 3rd graders and professional artists from the Midcoast. The performance will take place at the Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ in Waldoboro and will feature violinists Josie and Sophie Davis of Waldoboro, violist Colin Wheatley, and cellist Jaime Feldman. The musicians graduated from Oberlin Conservatory and have since pursued further study in the New England area. Collectively the group has studied, performed, and taught around the world from China and India to Jordan and Amsterdam.
Through a partnership with Miller Elementary School and local artists, the concert will provide an opportunity for community members to reflect on the beauty of the Midcoast through music and artwork themed around skyscapes--the sunrises, sunsets, night skies, storms, and winter evenings that are such a defining part of the rural landscape. The performance will feature Mozart's beloved Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music) and Schubert's Rosamunde String Quartet.
Admission is by suggested donation.
