BDN, Pen Bay Pilot Report on UMaine Symphonic Band’s Vinalhaven Concert

The Bangor Daily News and Penobscot Bay Pilot reported on the University of Maine Symphonic Band’s trip to Vinalhaven to perform two concerts. The 45-member instrumental ensemble, which includes music majors and students pursuing a variety of academic disciplines, traveled to the island by ferry as part of their four-day, nine-performance spring tour. Christopher White, who conducts the group, said the trip marks the first time one of UMaine’s top performance ensembles has gone to an outer island to hold a concert. “So many of our kids have never done anything like this,” he said, adding that the annual tour is part of the group’s community service.
