The Passamaquoddy Bay Symphony Orchestra (PBSO) is delighted to announce its upcoming fall performances: Saturday, December 3 at 3 pm at the Centre Street Congregational Church in Machias; and Sunday, December 4 at 2 pm at Sunrise Opportunities (formerly Calais Congregational Church) in Calais. Due to concerns about rising Covid rates in Washington County, the concert originally scheduled for Friday evening at Eastport Arts Center has been cancelled.
The program includes Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.1, “Winter Daydreams”, and “The Enchanted Isle,” a colorful suite by American composer Ernst Bacon. The suite, based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest, begins with a shipwreck and ends with a marriage blessing.
The PBSO is a constituent member of the Eastport Arts Center. The orchestra is conducted by its Music Director Trond Saeverud and Assistant Conductor Gregory Biss.
A $15 donation is suggested for adults; admission for students is free. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. More information is available via the PBSO’s Facebook page, on this site, or by phone to June Gregory, (207) 213-9145.
