Yesterday

  1. Pihcintu Concert @ SHS
    • Start time: 07:00pm
    • End date: Friday, December 2nd
    • End time: 08:00pm
    • The Library will culminate its Camden Conference series and celebrate the conference theme with a FREE performance by the Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus (link is external) this Friday, December 2 at 7:00 pm at the Winslow Homer Center for the Arts in Scarborough High School. No tickets or pre-registration required. The Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus helps restart young lives. War-torn villages, bloodshed, refugee camps, famine, and political turmoil were devastating realities for many of these young singers before being embraced by the warmth, companionship, and harmony that Pihcintu provides.

      Con Fullam, award-winning producer, musician, and songwriter, combined his passion for music with a deep concern for the effect of world issues on children to create this incredible chorus. Pihcintu has performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, the Portland Symphony Orchestra, and has appeared on the Today Show on NBC. Bring the family and hear the songs and stories of these resilient girls.

      This presentation is offered as a free community event in anticipation of the 30th Annual Camden Conference being held February 17-19, 2017. The 30th Anniversary Camden Conference Community Events Series is supported in part by the Maine Humanities Council.
