Celebrating OktoberFest with Maine Squeeze
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Location: Nordica Auditorium, UMF, Farmington, MEOn October 21 ArtsFarmington (previously Arts Institute of Western Maine) will present the accordion ensemble, Maine Squeeze. They will perform a program entitled “Celebrating OktoberFest” which will include a variety of foot-stomping polkas, waltzes, sing-a-longs and music you wouldn’t necessarily associate with the accordion. The audience will also be invited to participate in some simple dances.
The six-member group draws musicians from southern/coastal Maine although its performance record is far-flung and varied, including Portland City Hall and the recent Common Ground Fair. For more information about the group visit their website at mainesqueeze.com.
The concert will be held at 7:30 in Nordica Auditorium in Merrill Hall on the Univ. of Maine at Farmington campus. Although this OktoberFest celebration will be non-alcoholic, cider will be available in special, new mugs celebrating the recent roll-out of ArtsFarmington!
Price of admission will be $12 and free for those 18 and under and for students with ID. FMI visit artsfarmington.org or call 778-9437. ArtsFarmington is an affiliate of Univ. of Maine at Farmington.
