ORLEANS TRIO - This Thursday, MAY 26th at THE LANDING AT PINE POINT - KATRIN opens!

Best known for “Dance With Me” and “Still the One,” Orleans has more than earned its place in American pop culture history, and continues to sound better than ever. The Orleans Trio, with original members Lance and Larry (lead voice on ALL the hits) Hoppen, plus Dennis "Fly" Amero is an intimate, "unplugged" version of this prestigious and legendary group. Their vibrant harmonies, deep/broad catalog of classics and impressive NEW tunes, along with signature guitar work are proof that Orleans, in any configuration, is indeed "STILL THE ONE" and "STILL HAVIN' FUN"! Their audience rapport, humor, onstage chemistry and versatility make this show a favorite for lovers of all live music. 

DOORS: 6:30PM
OPENER: 7:00PM - KATRIN!

 

Katrin, a rising star in North America and Europe, hails from the Boston area. She is the embodiment of pure talent... the likes of which we have not seen in a while.

Movies: "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

Movies:  "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

Sit ye down, lads and lassies, and let me tell you about some real pirate movies.  They were made when Hollywood knew how to buckle a swash -- and they had stars like Douglas Fairbanks (“The Black Pirate,” 1926), Errol Flynn (“Captain Blood,” 1935) and Burt Lancaster (“The Crimson Pirate,” 1952).   So what if they didn’t have 3-D, surround sound and computer animation?  They had lusty men of iron aboard staunch ships of wood -- even if those ship were usually anchored on Hollywood sound stages.  

All of which brings me to this summer’s big pirate picture, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” starring the elfin Johnny Depp and the sultry Penelope Cruz.  

All State Musicians Have Many Talents

All State Musicians Have Many Talents

The correlation between participation in music and excelling academically is on display at the All State Music Festival on the Gorham campus of USM.  Poland

Regional High School students Ben Albee and Tyler Myers are prime examples.  Myers, singing bass in the All State Chorus, is the salutatorian of his graduating

class.  Albee, playing trombone in the All State Orchestra, is also an honor student and will be Master of Ceremonies at graduation.  There are many students at

the MMEA All State Music Festival who are the top students at their schools including Kaitlyn Kinsey, playing flute in the All State Band, who is Valedictorian of

her class at Fort Fairfield High School.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High School Student Musicians Invade USM

High School Student Musicians Invade USM

As day one of the MMEA sponsored All State Music Festival came to a close, the 447 participating high school musicians were treated to 

entertainment with a twist.   Opening the program was Zac Stearns, a junior at Hall-Dale High School and member of the All State chorus,  

who warmed up the audience with his original stand up comedy routine.  He was followed by  a cappella singing group Ball in the House,

a five member male singing group based in Massachusetts.  Their renditions of songs from the 1970's to present day  were received by

enthusiastic students who  showed their appreciation with an impromptu dance session.
