For the month of October, Eastport Arts Center’s Washington Street Gallery will feature 'Through Her Lens: Women Photographers Of Mid-Coast Maine, 1895-1925,' an exhibition loaned by the Penobscot Marine Museum. Since photography’s inception in 1839, women have been involved in the making of images. Constance Fox Talbot experimented with photography even as her husband William Fox Talbot was perfecting his process, the calotype, which generated the world’s first photographic negative in 1841. A handful of women began opening daguerreotype studios in Europe and the United States in the early 1840s, and were among the first professionals in this technical field at a time when most women either didn’t work outside the home, or were employed as domestic servants, schoolteachers, nurses, or laborers in the textile industry.

Following the success of "Peter and the Wolf" in 2014 and "Hansel and Gretel" in 2016, the Passamaquoddy Bay Symphony Orchestra (PBSO) is ready to present its third Music for Children project: "Brundibár!" Well-known Czechoslovakian Jewish composer Hans Krása wrote this prize-winning opera for children in 1938—early in the Nazi period of control in Czechoslovakia. During World War II, Nazis established a “City for the Jews” (Theresienstadt, or ‘Terezin,’ concentration camp) to convince the Red Cross that the camps were acceptable places. In this “City” the opera was performed 55 times by an all-child cast accompanied by musicians playing instruments they had been able to smuggle into the camp. Despite continuous changes in the cast due to ongoing deportations, "Brundibár" was a great source of hope and pride for residents of the camp.
