Through the healing power of music, the chorus offers these immigrant children an opportunity to help restart their lives. They have performed on the “Today Show” and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., for World Refugee Day. Their name, Pihcintu, comes from the Passamaquoddy word meaning “when she sings, her voice carries far.”

Tickets are available at the church office, 207-743-2290, or Books N Things on Main Street in Norway.
