Singers Emily Ann Cain, Kelly Caufield and Matthew Small, along with pianist Dr. Laura Artesani, will perform “Broadway & Beyond” at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 22 at the Church of Universal Fellowship in Orono as part of the organization’s Music With a Mission series. A portion of the concert proceeds will support Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance.

The upcoming Orono concert will mark Cain’s first appearance with the ensemble in four years. This original “Broadway & Beyond” team of friends has joined forces to perform musical theater, pop, standards and more for nearly two decades, often in support of worthy causes, including Special Olympics Maine and others. These New England-based entertainers relish the opportunity to connect with one another – and their audiences – through music.

Aside from their many concert appearances as soloists and ensemble members, Cain, Caufield and Small have appeared together with the University of Maine Singers, UMaine School of Performing Arts productions, Renaissance/The Maine Steiners a cappella groups, Schoolhouse Arts Center at Sebago Lake and other performing arts organizations. Dr. Artesani worked with the trio of singers for several years as their music professor at UMaine. She also serves as organist for the Church of Universal Fellowship.

“Broadway & Beyond” and the Church of Universal Fellowship have chosen to support Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance as their non-profit for this concert. The organization provides prevention education, advocacy and responsive services for Penobscot and Piscataquis County families impacted by domestic violence.

General admission to the concert is $15 at the door or $12 in advance. Contact the Church of Universal Fellowship at 866-3655 for tickets or for more information.
