On August 13, the RFA is teaming up with Rangeley Lake Cruises and Loon Lodge to bring back this hugely successful Music From the Lake event. First, the beautifully restored boat, The Oquossoc Lady, will carry members of the Downeast Brass to various private parties on the shore of Rangeley Lake. The public is then invited to attend a special lawn concert at the stunning Loon Lodge beginning at 7:45 pm for just $10.
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.
