PSO KinderKonzert–Tonight!

violinJoin Portland Symphony Orchestra’s String Quintet for the Story of Abbie Burgess tonight at 6:30 pm.

Experience the nor’easters of 1856 with 11-year-old Abbie as she keeps the Matinicus Lighthouse burning for four weeks while her father was stranded off island and her mother was gravely ill.  Abbie’s story is recounted in the book Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie, available in the Children’s Room.

This is a great opportunity to introduce children to stringed instruments!  And it’s free, thanks to a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
