Saturday, June 4th, 2022 — ELIOT, MAINE
Green Acre was pleased to host the first concert since 2019 for cousin choruses Voices from the Heart and Con Tutti, performing a great combination of Gospel, African, American and Ukrainian songs outdoors under the ‘big top’ on our campus in Eliot, Maine.
“We… sing our songs of hope, peace and support for Ukraine” said director, Joanne Connolly. Voices and Con Tutti had already raised over $5,000 to send to Ukraine during our rehearsal period.
Singers of both Voices from the Heart and Con Tutti, under the direction of Joanne Connolly, join forces for a sold out performance, uplifting and moving the audience of five hundred with great African drumming, piano and bass played by guest musicians, Randy Armstrong, Kent Allyn and Jonathan Booth. The concert delighted audiences with a broad range of tunes from a Mozambique freedom song to great American Gospel and doo-wop to the Ukrainian National Anthem!
Participants were also able to view Green Acre’s current art exhibit, Afrofuturism 2022, as well as partake of an historic campus tour.
