A MAGICAL AFTERNOON IN HEAD TIDE, MAINE

Thanks to our good friends (and newly-matriculated board members) Priscilla and Brett Donham, we spent an unforgettable August weekend in beautiful Alna, Maine — good food and fellowship, a swim in the river, and a concert of New England spirituals in the pristine, eighteenth century Head Tide church, before a wonderfully appreciative audience.Head Tide church, Alna, ME

It was the kind of marriage between music and architecture that we often dream about — but this time, it was reality, a perfect match between the “frozen music” of the old church vaults and the warm, living sounds of early American song. We salute our generous hosts for a very special experience, which was eloquently summed up in an email from one audience member: “Splendid, special, wonderful, spectacular, magical, glorious.”
