BRUNSWICK – The Bowdoin International Music Festival has received a grant of $5,000 from the Alfred M. Senter Fund to produce EuroFest, a new, week-long series of concerts and special events to be held in nontraditional venues throughout Brunswick.

“The recognition and support of the Alfred M. Senter Fund is extremely important to us, as it is to many local arts organizations,” said Peter Simmons, festival executive director. “This grant will enable us to provide world-class music to local residents who may have missed us in the past. We are grateful to the Senter Fund for this opportunity.”

A part of the festival’s efforts to help strengthen cultural and economic vitality in the local community, EuroFest is conceived as a salute to the European festivals. The Bowdoin Festival will bring performers to nontraditional venues, including businesses, churches, galleries, libraries and other venues in the summer of 2007.
