Music by MAGIC will perform in Poland


POLAND – Music by MAGIC will present a program of varied vocal and instrumental music from the 1930s to the ’80s Monday, July 16, at All Souls Chapel, as part of the Poland Spring Preservation Society’s Summer Concert Series. Members of the group are Conrad Soucy, Joanne Fuller, Roland M. Roy and Diane J. Biron.

A born-again former rock star, who gave up playing to spend more time with his family, Soucy is back after a 20-year hiatus. Recently, he played for the Fanfare Concert Band, for several Kora Shrine bands, for the Windjammers Circus Music Band, the 60s Plus Band, the Music Makers Big Band, and is now percussionist for Music by MAGIC.

Fuller first sang in a folk/folk rock group known as Chord Majority. Between 1970 and 1980, she performed with such professional groups as Vehicle, The Flairs, Voyage, and Traces. She stopped singing professionally in 1981 so she could spend more time with her family and is now returning to her singing career.

Roy and Biron are no strangers to MAGIC or the Poland Spring Preservation Society. As co-founders and directors of the MAGIC Pops Chorus and later MAGIC & Company, they have entertained audiences in the Lewiston-Auburn area and in Poland during the 1990s and later.
