Eastport Arts Center welcomes the Portland-based Palaver Strings on Sunday, November 10 at 3 pm for "Welcome Home," a program which celebrates the vitality of Maine’s immigrant communities through music and storytelling. The orchestra will collaborate with guest artists of Franco-American, Burundian, and Iraqi heritage, sharing traditional music and personal stories of their families’ journeys to Maine. In partnership with Portland Ovations and the Immigrant Welcome Center of Greater Portland (IWC), this program will be performed in Portland and 6 other Maine locations, with the goal of exposing rural Maine communities to the experiences of new immigrant families, celebrating Maine’s cultural diversity, and encouraging audiences to reflect on their own heritage and how to make Maine a safe and inclusive environment for everyone.
