Franco-American Centre concert to celebrate new after-school program

Orono, Maine — The Franco-American Centre at the University of Maine will host a free concert Aug. 31 to celebrate the launch of a new after-school program.

A 5 p.m. potluck will precede the 6 p.m. Quebec fiddle music concert by Le Bruit Court dans la Ville (The Buzz Around Town) at the center on campus.

The event will mark the start of a new French language instruction 
program the Centre will provide for elementary school children in Old Town and Orono. During the concert, parents will have the opportunity to register their children for classes that will begin Sept. 21.

Guests are encouraged to bring food to share.

The program is the result of collaboration among UMaine’s Franco 
American programs, Modern Languages and Classics Department and the College of Education, as well as local school officials.
The event is sponsored by the Franco American Centre, Canadian-American Center and University of Maine Humanities Center.
