BRUNSWICK – Singer-composer Rhiannon will give a benefit concert, accompanied by Portland-based pianist-singer Rebecca Wing, for the Maine AIDS Alliance, at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 3, in the Unitarian Universalist Church, 15 Pleasant St.

The proceeds will be disbursed to AIDS organizations statewide.

Rhiannon has performed her blend of world music, jazz, improvisation and storytelling before international audiences for more than three decades. She also has a longtime musical collaboration with vocal improvisation master Bobby McFerrin. Since 1986, she’s been a member of Voicestra, his 12-voice orchestra. In 1997, she recorded “Circle Songs” with him and has since been a featured soloist on his U.S. and European Voicestra tours.

Teaching has also been a strong part of Rhiannon’s life. In clinics and workshops, in conservatories and institutes around the world she teaches her unique vocal improvisation process, developed over a 30 years.

Wing is known for her annual solstice conceits in Portland and is co-founder of the Mindfulness Center of Southern Maine.
