On Friday, June 6th at 7pm, two talented Washington County natives, Molly Abrams of Cutler and Sam Schuth of Eastport, team up for a recital at the Eastport Arts Center.
Classical singer Molly Abrams is a 21-year-old going into her senior year at the University of Maine as a double major in Music Education and Vocal Performance. She has been studying soprano repertoire in Professor Ludlow Hallman’s studio since her freshman year, and has been studying classical repertoire for four years. Molly has participated in the NATS Song Festival Competition at Bates College and won third place in division IV and V. She has been a member of UMaine Opera Workshop, The University Singers, and many other ensembles and vocal events on campus. Earlier this months she sang with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra for their annual Youth Concert. Molly has performed at the Moose Island Follies for the past four years.
Sam Schuth, 21, is a Violin Performance major at University of Southern Maine. He is going into his final year, studying with Dr. Robert Lehmann. He first started playing the violin at six-years-old, and Eastport was crucial to his musical development, thanks to Eastport Strings giving him an outlet and a reason to keep practicing, and thanks to a welcoming community that let him play fiddle music on the streets every summer. Currently, he performs in the University of Southern Maine String Quintet, sits concertmaster for the Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra, and is gigging regularly in the Portland area.
Both performers will be accompanied by Greg Biss on Piano. Admission is $10, 18 and under are free. The Eastport Arts Center is located at 36 Washington St. in Eastport.
