ORONO The University of Maine School of Performing Arts' presentation of 'Ein deutsches Requiem' by Johannes Brahms on Dec. 15, conducted by retiring Professor Ludlow Hallman, is dedicated to the memory of those killed during the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

The Oratorio Society Concert will be presented with the University Orchestra in the 900-seat Hampden Academy Performing Arts Center in Hampden. Kelly Scheetz, soprano, and Justin Zang, baritone, will be soloists.

Brahms's Opus 45 is a prayer for the souls of the departed. 'Brahms's text addresses those who are left behind, with words of comfort and consolation,' Hallman said. 'It is a very personal and heartfelt master work. He envisioned it as a work for all of humanity, transcending specific religious belief or nationality.'

Hallman has conducted the University Orchestra, an auditioned group of 45 musicians, and the Oratorio Society, a mixed choral ensemble of community members and university students. He has also directed the Opera Workshop, chaired UMaine's Music Department and served as resident director of the New England Universities in Salzburg program which was the immersion training for students of German. In addition, he has conducted and directed music for multiple operas and musical comedies and served as assistant conductor of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra.

Admission is $10, free with a student MaineCard. For tickets or disability accommodations, call (207) 581-1755. Tickets will also be available at the door prior to the performance.

    Hello, just wanted to share with you that we had a great holiday at Marina de Bolnuevo in August of this year (http://www.marinadebolnuevo.co.uk/about-bolnuevo). We flew into Alicante and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are clean, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The cafes were great, with paella on the beach a must and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again in 2018. Look forward to seeing you at Marina de Bolnuevo in the next few months. Thanks for reading Niall.

    Hi there, just wanted to let you know that we had a great holiday at Marina de Bolnuevo in July of this year. We flew into San Javier and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are clean, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The bars were great, with paella on the beach a must and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again next year. Thanks for reading Tony.
