“Now Let Me Fly!” is the theme of the upcoming spring concerts by the Lake Region Community Chorus. The LRCC is made up of 55 enthusiastic singers and musicians from 14 towns in the Lake Region area who practice and perform in Bridgton Academy’s Twitchell Chapel in North Bridgton. This season’s performances will feature traditional classical pieces, folk songs, spirituals and a “Fiddler on the Roof” medley, along with a few surprises, all with a recurring theme of hope, freedom and peace.
The group will hold two concerts, both at the Twitchell Chapel. The first will be on Friday, May 18 at 7 p.m. and the second on Sunday, May 20 at 3 p.m. There is no charge for admission but donations are accepted to cover operating costs. These concerts are very popular and seating is limited — be sure to arrive early so you won’t have to stand.
