“Blue Skies - A Choral Celebration” spring concert by Leslie McConnell

Come hear the Lake Region Community Chorus (LRCC) as they celebrate spring through joyful songs at their fifth annual spring concert, “Blue Skies - A Choral Celebration.” 
The 52 members of the chorus have come together each week, from 14 towns in and surrounding the Lake Region that include Windham and Raymond communities, to prepare for the upcoming concert. 
A great variety of musical styles, from classical to popular music, are in store for the event and for your listening pleasure. 

This spring’s medleys will include selections by composers including: Vivaldi, Irving Berlin, William L. Dawson, Cat Stevens, The Beatles and more.

The concerts are scheduled for Friday, May 19 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 21 at 3 p.m. and will be held at the Twitchell Chapel at the Bridgton Academy in North Bridgton.  The concerts are open to all. Donations are graciously accepted to help cover operating costs.  

The LRCC is made up entirely of volunteers who are extremely grateful for the help and support they have received from local businesses, patrons and enthusiastic audiences.  The LRCC would especially like to thank Bridgton Academy for providing them with a wonderful rehearsal space and concert venue.  

Jan Jukkola, Susan Stockwell and Dan Allen are the volunteer directors, while Carolyn Stanhope, Sara-Sue Schreiber and Nancy Capone accompany the group. The chorus welcomes back percussionists, Rusty Wiltjer and Mark Priola, Zachary Gray on trumpet as well as violinist Alex Ricks. Sam Schuth, Ann Stepp, and Linda McVety will join Alex Ricks to accompany the selections from Vivaldi’s “Gloria”.

Don’t miss the LRCC’s spring’s concert! You will hear a variety of beautiful pieces and leave carrying the gift of joyous music in your heart.
