Program for Maine Students is off to a great start




Dear Friends,

As you can see by the pictures the Kneisel Hall Program for Maine Students is off to a great start.  The youngest group arrived on Sunday and started making music with their Young Artist mentors.  Thank you to the donors who make it possible: the Bangor Savings Bank, the Leonard C. and Mildred F. Ferguson Foundation, the Lanie & Ethel Foundation and Mr. Bernard Osher for their generous support.
Our new kitchen is up and running (thank you donors).  Chef Zach Maccarone is a busy (but happy) man!

From now until September there is music every week -all week long.
This weekend we welcome the Telegraphy Quartet.
We hope to see you soon and often at Kneisel Hall,
