BDN previews Collins Center for the Arts’ 30th anniversary season
The Bangor Daily News published an article about the Collins Center for the Art’s 30th anniversary season. The season kicks off with the CCA’s annual gala featuring “Piano Men: The Music of Elton and Billy with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra” on Sept. 12. “The gala is always a focus for us, this year especially because it’s an anniversary year. We are excited to be involving the Bangor Symphony Orchestra because the Bangor Symphony Orchestra opened the hall with Yo-Yo Ma and Isaac Stern [in 1986],” said Danny Williams, executive director of the CCA. Over the past three decades, much has changed at the center, but its purpose has remained constant, the article states. “We are here to provide top-quality live performance to our community and to our region. And like the University of Maine, it is intended to be affordable and accessible in keeping with the university’s mission,” Williams said.
