On Friday, July 6 at 7 p.m., six classical musicians will present a “Farm to Fiddle” concert celebrating local agriculture and classical music in Midcoast Maine, a region that is home to dozens of family farms. The concert will feature a performance of Tchaikovsky’s “Souvenir de Florence” and a medley of traditional folk music accompanied by projections of photographs that capture the daily challenges, rewards, and realities facing farms in rural Maine.
Musicians include Waldoboro violinists Josie and Sophie Davis, violists Colin Wheatley and Nathan Lesser, and cellists Jaime Feldman and Ju-Young Lee. The musicians have studied, performed, and taught around the world on five continents.
“Farm to Fiddle” is the third annual multimedia concert that seeks to celebrate the beauty of the local landscape through music and art. The Davis sisters’ vision for the concert is to pair music and photography in a way that contextualizes two art forms that are often interpreted separately. They believe that both mediums have the ability to inspire change and awareness, and that, together, they can inspire an appreciation for humans’ dependence on the natural world.
The performance will take place at Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ, 941 Main St., Waldoboro. Admission is by donation. For more information, call 832-6898 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
