Dunnemans to present concert


RUMFORD — Reg and Gretchen Dunneman will present a worship concert at 11 a.m. Sunday, May 22, at the First Baptist Church on Washington Street.

The Dunnemans, from Binghamton, N.Y., sing their own special blend of gospel music, including southern gospel, traditional, hymn, classical, country, bluegrass and contemporary Christian styles. Their full-time ministry presents more than 350 concerts a year from cathedrals to campgrounds anywhere from Maine to Florida to Arizona.

They have produced several recordings which will be available at the service. CDs are $15.

Reg Dunneman, a native of Stratford, Ontario, grew up in a musical family and played piano at an early age. He organized The Victors Trio and then The Tabernacle Trio, which sang in Ontario for 10 years. For 20 years, he sang with Canada’s Galileans, a Southern Gospel quartet that toured Canada and the U.S.

Gretchen has been a member of The Friendship Trio, singing in churches and Bible conferences. She also sang with the Broome County (N.Y.) Savoyards, performing Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, and in the choruses of the BC Pops, the Binghamton Symphony Orchestra and the Tri-Cities Opera, all in Binghamton, N.Y.
