Trek Across Maine 03/20/21-06/30/21 at 12:00 am

Trek Across Maine

The American Lung Association’s 2021 Trek Across Maine has been reimagined into a virtual Cycle Your Way format now through June 30th! Cycling is a great way to improve both your physical and mental health, while giving an extra boost to your immune system. We encourage you to participate in the virtual event as this allows you to get outside while still practicing social distancing!

Money raised will support public health efforts related to lung disease, including COVID-19 research. Over the next three years, the American Lung Association has pledged $25 million to:

  • Provide free lung health education and masks to those in need.
  • Protect public health by advocating for COVID and flu vaccines in underserved communities of color.
  • Prevent future outbreaks by investing in respiratory virus research.

What: If you choose to participate in the cycling portion of the virtual event, complete 60, 120 or 180 miles on an indoor or outdoor bike (or mix of both) at your own pace and in segments if preferred. All virtual participants that raise the minimum $250 by June 30th will receive an accomplishment medal and event t-shirt. You can earn incentives the more you raise!

When: Now through June 30th, 2021.

Where: Anywhere you’d like, just make sure to always practice social distancing. Sample routes throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts will be provided as well.

How: Visit the event website (TrekAcrossMaine.org) and register as a virtual participant for $25. You will receive everything you need to successfully complete the virtual event from there!

Extras: Join our  Trek Across Maine Group on Strava. You can connect your tracking devices to the Strava app so others can see your progress. We also encourage you to join our Trek Across Maine group to stay in touch with other participants and post photos of your ride/screenshots of your progress.

Virtual Music Workshops 04/05/21-06/02/21 at All Day

Virtual Music Workshops

COVID restrictions may keep us from singing together, but we can still listen, learn, and grow together through music! Oratorio Chorale’s Virtual Music Workshops are designed specifically for you – music lovers, amateur instrumentalists, piano players, choral singers, culture geeks – to improve your understanding of how music works and why.

Music in Non-Western Traditions

Mondays, April 5–May 3 (no meeting April 19) • 7:00pm • $30

Instructor: Patia Maule, Visiting Instructor

This four-week online class will explore unifying themes such as where and when music is played, how music is taught, and what instrument families are found around the world. In the final week, we will examine African and European throughlines in the Americas across a wide range of genres.
