WINTER HARBOR — The Schoodic Summer Chorus will hold its annual Harvest Festival fundraiser, a celebration of local music and a delicious harvest meal, from 4 to 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, at Hammond Hall.
Sponsored by Schoodic Arts for All, the event will feature the Schoodic Peninsula’s a cappella community chorus as well as a wide variety of singers and instrumentalists will perform.
Celeste Mittelhauser, soprano, with Steven “Shepsi” Eaton on piano, will perform classical gems. Pam and Marc Bellenoit sing and play guitar in the folk tradition. The Smokin’ Baroque ensemble will be return to perform 17th century music through voice, harpsichord, and other instruments. “Doc G” and “Waylon” Weeks will sing some stompin’ blues with guitar and harmonica.
Thea Crowley, a 14-year-old pop songstress, will sing and play guitar, and at the end, Shepsi Eaton and friends will play some contra music with piano, strings and maybe some horns.
At intermission, a homemade meal of delicious chilies — both meat and vegetarian — salads, cornbread, and pies and other desserts will be served.
Funds raised at the Harvest Festival help to support the chorus and keep member dues affordable. Admission is a suggested donation of $20 per adult, $5 for students, and free admission for children under 12.
