On the lawn behind the Church of the Good Shepherd on the shore of Rangeley Lake
Please bring your own seating; in case of rain, the concert will take place inside the Church.
The Rangeley Friends of the Arts presents Music on the Lake, featuring Downeast Brass: a unique concert on the shore of Rangeley Lake in downtown Rangeley. The band will play from the deck of “The Oquossoc Lady” – a lake touring vessel. As the band plays just offshore, concert goers can set up chairs or spread a blanket and bring a picnic as they enjoy the sounds of the band and the sunset over Rangeley Lake. The Church is located at 2614 Main Street in Rangeley.
If you would like to host a private party, where the “Lady” brings the band to your location on Rangeley Lake to play for your guests, please contact Linda Sikes, Chairperson, at lsikes
The Downeast Brass has performed in many New England settings. Audiences have been impressed by these fine Maine performers on the concert stage, at weddings, festivals, and on parade. They have performed at private parties at the Governor’s mansion in Augusta, Maine, at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, the famous Moxie Parade, and Governor Baldacci’s inauguration ceremony, among many other appearances. Their wide range of musical styles makes them the preferred musical choice for many occasions.
The Downeast Brass’s founder and arranger, Dwight Tibbetts, has kept the unique talents and skills of his colleagues in mind as he has arranged music specifically for the group. From Andy Forster’s pristine high trumpet tones to Mark Mumme’s full bass sonority, the Downeast Brass combines the skills of some of Maine’s premier musicians. Since they are also music educators, they seek to reach audiences of all ages with original and entertaining programming.
In case of rain, the public concert will take place inside the Church of the Good Shepherd.
