Naia to perform at Camden church

Posted July 18, 2011, at 5:22 p.m.

CAMDEN — The Friends of Music Concert Series at The First Congregational Church of Camden will present the duo Naia at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 24, in the church sanctuary, 55 Elm St.

Naia duo, harpist Danielle Langord and flutist Nicole Rabata, play traditional Celtic music from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and Quebec, along with the duo’s own traditionally inspired compositions. Based in Portland, they perform throughout New England and have appeared in various ensembles and as soloists throughout the United States and on international stages.

Rabata and Langord serve on the applied music faculty at Colby College, and teach clinics and workshops throughout New England.

A reception will follow the concert in the church’s Mayflower Room with light refreshments and an opportunity to meet and discuss the music with the musicians. The concert is free and open to the public, although donations to sustain the program and to support a recently established music scholarship program will be accepted at the door.
