All State Music Festival in Gorham

Reprinted from, written by Sam Moore-Young

There will be music making on the Gorham Campus of University of Southern Maine (USM) this week.  Over 400 high school musicians from Maine will converge on USM for the Maine Music Educators Association’s annual All State Music Festival.

Last November, students went through rigorous auditions to secure a spot in one of the three honors performance groups: Orchestra, Band, Chorus.  Competition is keen and being accepted one year does not guarantee acceptance the next year.

Students will rehearse May 19th & 20th on campus, then move to Windham High School for the concerts on May 21st.  Order of the concerts is as follows: 2:00 pm Orchestra; 3:30 pm Band; 5:00 pm Chorus. Tickets may be purchased at the door.  Ticket prices are $8.00 each for ONE concert; $6.00 each for TWO concerts ($12.00 total); $5.00 each for all three concerts. ($15.00 total).  Tickets are not reserved seating – only general admission.  Attendees will leave the hall between the performances.

Art for First Friday’s

Andrew Braceras who owns Market House Coffee in the new Public Market House in downtown Portland has invited Portland High School art students to exhibit their artwork in the gallery space in his restaurant. The students and teachers exhibit fresh student artwork every month for each First Friday Art Walk, which is held every first Friday of the month in gallery spaces throughout Portland. The Portland High Art Department really appreciates this opportunity and the support of the arts by Mr. Braceras, the Public Market House and the community.

Portland High School Art teachers Tory Tyler-Millar, Stan Colburn, and Gerry White students’ this month are exhibiting student pastel self portraits from the Art 2 classes and graphite portraits from the Drawing classes at Portland High School.
