The University of Maine at Machias (UMM) will be hosting an outdoor drum circle/percussion jam session at 3 pm Friday, September 4, near the sculpture on the lawn below Powers Hall. Social distancing and mask wearing will be in effect, with instruments placed at least 6’ apart; this will be in compliance with University of Maine system and state COVID-19 guidelines. The event is free and open to the public; again, masks must be worn.
UMM opened its Fall 2020 semester Monday, August 31 for a mix of live and online classes. Alan Kryszak will be teaching MUS 112, a new online music history class, with video content prepared and performed by the instructor. Gene Nichols will be offering private lessons, either live or online.
