Music with a Mission features “Broadway & Beyond” concert Saturday July 27th

Singers Emily Cain and Kelly Caufield along with pianist Dr. Laura Artesani and special guest group, UMaine Renaissance, will perform “Broadway & Beyond” at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 27th at the North Windham Union Church as part of the organization’s Music with a Mission series.

The upcoming concert will mark the seventh annual summer concert for this popular local ensemble.
This original “Broadway & Beyond” team of friends has joined forces to perform musical theater, pop, standards and more for nearly two decades, often in support of worthy causes, including Special Olympics Maine and others. These New England-based entertainers relish the opportunity to connect with one another -- and their audiences -- through music.

Aside from their many concert appearances as soloists and ensemble members, Cain and Caufield have appeared together with the University of Maine Singers, UMaine School of Performing Arts productions, Renaissance, Schoolhouse Arts Center at Sebago Lake and other performing arts organizations. Dr. Artesani has worked with the singers for several years as their music professor at UMaine.

Renaissance is the University of Maine’s premiere female a cappella group, founded in 1999. Cain and Caufield are founding members of the group. Renaissance performs regularly throughout New England, touring with the University of Maine Singers, and has released several albums of original songs and covers of music from various decades and genres.

The Music with a Mission concert series is sponsored by the North Windham Union Church, which donates a portion of the proceeds to area non-profits. Now in our seventh season, MWAM has provided over $63,000 for mission support to the church and other community organizations. The “Broadway & Beyond” performers have once again decided to support Special Olympics Maine with the community proceeds from this concert.

Tickets will be sold at the door and are $12 for adults and $10 for students, children, and seniors.  Tickets are also available in advance on-line at and through the church office from 9am to noon Monday through Thursday.  The box office opens at 6 p.m. and the doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The North Windham Union Church is located at 723 Roosevelt Trail in Windham and is air-conditioned for your comfort.  For more information please call 892-6142 or email
