BRIDGTON — It is concert time again for the members of the Lake Region Community Chorus. This enthusiastic singing group is made up of fifty-three members from twelve surrounding towns.

The performances will be held on Friday, May 19 at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, May 21 at 3 p.m. at the Bridgton Academy’s Twitchell Chapel in North Bridgton.

The LRCC is directed by Jan Jukkola and Susan Stockwell and accompanied by Julie Frum. The program will also include accompaniments by these very talented musicians, Rusty Wiltjer, percussion, Mark Priola, electric bass, Dick Albert, clarinet, Adam Quincy, trumpet, Glen Jukkola, violin, Pam Ward, guitar and Serena DiNucci, percussion.

The program will also feature a premiere performance of Ode to the Earth, composed and directed by Carolyn Rhoads.

The chorus would like to thank the Bridgton Academy for all their help and support and providing them with rehearsal space and a concert venue. They would also like to thank their enthusiastic audiences and local sponsors.

The concert is free but donations to help cover music and operating costs will be gratefully accepted. Come and join the Lake Region Community Chorus as they sing into spring. The concert is sure to be remembered long after the final chords are sounded. Please visit the LRCC website or call 647-2584 for more information.
