St Paul’s Episcopal Church
27 Pleasant Street
The Pihcintu Chorus is a multi-national refugee and immigrant girls’ chorus based in Portland, Maine. It was started by songwriter Con Fullam as a way to help restart the young lives of kids who had seen too much of war, famine, and refugee camps. These amazing young people have performed all over the United States, including the White House and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. There are lots of videos on YouTube if you’re curious, but hearing them in person and meeting them afterward is nothing short of inspiring. They are fabulous!
Family Ministries at St. Paul’s is organizing special 45-minute pre-concert activities on the same afternoon (2:30-3:15) for students and their families. The vision for these crucial minutes with the young people (and hopefully parents as well, especially if the students are on the young side) will be a conversation about how they can be open and welcoming to our guests who come from a variety of different countries, ones very different from ours. Please call the church office at 207-725-5342 if you wish to participate in the pre-concert activities so we can have enough supplies for everyone.
There will be a reception following the concert, at which you can meet and talk with the members of the group. We hope you can join us for a very special and unforgettable afternoon. A free-will offering will be taken, all of which will benefit the Pihcintu Chorus.
