Do you want a chance to hear some of the most talented musicians in Maine for free? The Kingfield POPS in bringing the Bangor Symphony Orchestra’s Juniper Quartet to Strong and Kingfield for five free public performances on Monday, May 4. The concerts are open to all community members.

The performances will be held at Strong Elementary School at 10 a.m. and at Kingfield Elementary School at 1 p.m. Students in Phillips, Stratton, Rangeley and Carrabec elementary schools have been invited to be part of the audience for these concerts.
