Winter Follies

Saturday, January 28th at 7:00 pm at the Eastport Arts Center, 36 Washington St., Eastport

Quoddy Voices, Eastport Arts Center's international community chorus, will present a Winter Follies show. Devised as both a diversion from the icy doldrums of midwinter and as an opportunity to showcase the myriad talents of the group of singers and musicians who are part of the Quoddy Voices fold, the event will be a fundraiser with proceeds split between the EAC and the choir. Musical performances of all kinds, ranging from chanteys to show tunes, as well as comical skits, will comprise the program. "It occurred to me that Quoddy Voices is bursting with talent," said the group's director, John Newell, "and I wanted to see what would happen if we went 'free range.'"

Quoddy Voices was formed in 2014, and boasts members from all over the Passamaquoddy Bay region, including Canada. Rehearsals for the Spring performances will begin on Monday, February 13 at 7 pm, and new singers of all experience levels are welcome to join the group.

Cost:$10; 17 and under will be admitted free
