4-H Fridays on the Farm

July 16.2021

University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Program is offering a new summer series, 4-H Fridays on the Farm, to get teens ages 12-18 engaged in Maine agriculture. Current 4-H enrollment is not necessary for participation. Program materials and instruction are FREE. The goal of 4-H Fridays on the Farm is to expose teens ages 12-18 to Maine agriculture and create workforce development skills through a variety of different hands-on, farm visits throughout the state. Teens may join for one session or all four to experience what different farms across the state have to offer. Each session will include an opportunity for teens to take a tour of operations, gain hands-on experience, and consider their role in the Maine Food System. 4-H Fridays on the Farm is the first educational offering in a series developed by the Maine 4-H Agricultural Leadership Team.

Lewiston

Youth Organ Festival at 10 AM

September 16, 2021

An Introduction to the Organ: The King of Instruments Designed especially for Grades 1 – 12 including public, private and home school.


Dr. Joyce Jones, who taught at Baylor University, Waco, Texas, for 43 years, has introduced children and youth across the nation and around the world to the wonders of the pipe organ! We are honored to have her visit us in Lewiston!


Through musical examples, young people are introduced to the sounds of the organ, showing the high pitches, the low pitches, the volume (very loud to very soft), and the fact that the organ is the oldest of the keyboard instruments. They are also introduced to the names of the manuals of the organ and the names of the stops of the organ.


Musical examples include familiar melodies such as the Bach Toccata in D minor, variations techniques such as Variations on America by Charles Ives, and humorous pieces such as Donkey Dance and Hornpipe Humoresque.


It is hoped that the students might be interested enough in the organ to return for the concert with Dr. Jones the next evening, Friday, September 17, 2021, at 7:30 p.m.


In addition to hearing the largest church pipe organ in Maine, those attending will experience the majestic architecture of the Basilica as well as the beauty of the mammoth stained glass windows! An event the students will never forget! THIS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM IS A GIFT TO THE COMMUNITY AND REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED. HOWEVER, IF YOU PLAN TO BRING YOUR STUDENTS, PLEASE KINDLY NOTIFY SCOTT scott.vaillancourt@portlanddiocese.org Co-sponsored by the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul and The Mark Thallander Foundation
