Herbert Hotel will be transformed, once again, into a concert hall, this time for the many followers and new fans of Downeast Brass, a group of five men wearing tuxedos and playing gleaming brass instruments.
Kingfield POPS is sponsoring the concert as a fundraiser as part of the ongoing effort to retain and to support music programs in the area schools. As a career teacher, I have learned that, in every state, when funds become limited music programs are the first to be cut. The loss impacts all students in the school, not merely those who are in the band. Music is very important to giving students a total education, and the work accomplished by the Kingfield POPS to provide funds to purchase and to maintain instruments should be applauded. We will have fun at this concert, and through their purchase of a ticket everyone who attends will assist in the effort to keep music programs alive and well in the area schools.
A special treat is that members of the Mt. Abram High School band will also be here to guide concertgoers in hanging up their coats and in finding their seats. These are the same wonderful young people who rocked the Herbert with a very lively and well-attended Christmas concert in early December.
We are making memories while making music at the Herbert. Come for the music and stay for the ambiance.
