The Concert Series presents a recital by Molly Abrams, soprano: ‘Seascape’

Friday, August 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Eastport Arts Center’s popular summer concert series continues on August 2 and 9 with gifted Washington County-raised musicians who return home to share their new music. Soprano Molly Abrams will take the stage on Friday, August 2 at 7 pm, with a recital titled, ‘Seascape,’ featuring classical and musical theatre selections celebrating the coast, its beauty and its inhabitants, including selections by Gabriel Faure, Alan Menken, Kurt Weill, and Benjamin Britten, and piano accompaniment by Gregory Biss. A reception sponosored by Waco Diner@ will follow the concert. Eastport native Sam Schuth, violinist, will appear on Friday, August 9 at 7 pm. (Stay tuned for details about Sam’s concert!)
 
“After spending three years in the midwest, I am very excited to be back in Maine exclusively!” noted Adams. “I got the idea for this repertoire after finishing my graduate voice recital. I noticed how many songs I was already singing related to the sea, so I decided to learn a few more to make a short recital celebrating the beautiful place that we call home.”
 
A Cutler native, Molly Abrams received undergraduate degrees in vocal performance and vocal music education from The University of Maine and recently graduated from The University of Illinois with a master of music degree in vocal performance and literature.  Abrams studied with Yvonne Redman and performed with Lyric Theatre @ Illinois in their productions of The Rape of Lucretia (Lucia), Hansel and Gretel (Gretel), and Sky Macklay’s premiere of The Surrogate (Woman’s Uterus).  She frequently performs musical theatre as well and most recently was a soloist for Nathan and Julie Gunn and Friends: An Evening on Broadway at The Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.  Abrams also placed first in the Advanced College Women Classical division at the Central Region NATS Competition this past year. 
 
Concert Series tickets are $10; youth tickets will be discounted. Tickets may be purchased on the EAC site, or at the door. The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport, and at www.eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible.
