Bangor’s Waterfront Concert Series begins its fourth season
BANGOR – It’s a gray Thursday night as people fill into the new home of Bangor’s Waterfront Concert Series. Nestled into a tighter spot aside the hill along Main Street a mere hundred yards from its former spot where it stood for three years, the new Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion looms large over rows of well-organized chairs that are more reminiscent of the interior of the Collins Center for the Arts than an outdoor amphitheater. Soon, rock bands Hinder and Motely Crue will be treating fans to their first sounds of heavy guitar and teeth-chattering bass in a venue that took both collaboration and patience to achieve, and for many will be home to many more concerts in the years to come.
LEWISTON - Concert artist Igor Lovchinsky presents the final program of the 2012-2013 Piano Series season at the Franco-American Heritage Center in Lewiston on Friday, May 24. The recital begins at 7:30 p.m. and will include works by Bach-Busoni, Chopin, Scriabin and Liszt.
Lovchinsky is one of the most popular pianists to have given recitals at the Franco Center, where he has also appeared as soloist with the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra. His electric interpretation of the Grieg A-minor piano concerto was the highlight of the Midcoast’s Gala Concert in October 2011.
The in-concert meltdown: an unfortunate spectacle usually activated by the rigors of a life on the road sparked by exhaustion, chemicals, a fragile emotional or physical makeup and the general demeanor of the “artiste” in question.
Audience reactions to the meltdown can range from anger to amusement - from disbelief to delight. The end result for the performer varies, but it could include a vaguely-worded apology and a trip to the ER, rehab or both.
ELLSWORTH - The Grand presents a solo performance from singer-songwriter James McMurtry on Sunday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
The son of acclaimed author Larry McMurtry (“Lonesome Dove,” “Terms of Endearment”), James grew up on a steady diet of Johnny Cash and Roy Acuff records. His first album, released in 1989, was produced by John Mellencamp and marked the beginning of a series of acclaimed projects for Columbia and Sugar Hill.
OLD TOWN - Waterfront Concerts is pleased to announce that after a thorough municipal peer review process by the town of Scarborough City Services and Staff it was granted unanimous council approval to host a series of concerts at
Scarborough Downs during the summer of 2012. The approved mass gathering permit calls for one to five concerts during the summer and early fall of 2012.
While planning for the “Music at the Track” series is still in the very early stages, Waterfront Concerts hopes to build on the success experienced in Bangor during the Waterfront Concert Series at the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion during each of the past two summers. The goal is to bring the same caliber of world-class entertainment to Southern Maine.
