Music, art to celebrate Midcoast sky

Posted:  Monday, June 19, 2017 - 7:15pm

WALDOBORO — Celestial sounds from the Solstice String Quartet will fill the air Friday, June 23, in a multimedia performance that also will feature projections of skyscape paintings from local artists and students. The quartet will play Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music) and Schubert's Rosamunde String Quartet. The concert begins at 7 p.m. at Broad Bay Congregational UCC in Waldoboro.

The Solstice String Quartet is composed of violinists Josie and Sophie Davis of Waldoboro, violist Colin Wheatley and cellist Jaime Feldman. The musicians befriended each other when they were students at Oberlin Conservatory. They have since pursued further study and work 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.

Admission is by donation. For more information, call 832-6898 or email Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 941 Main St., Waldoboro.​
