Maggie’s Revue – from decade to decade
On Saturday, June 20th St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Belfast presents “Maggie’s Revue,” a celebration of 100 years of music and poetry, in honor of the church’s centennial observations all year long.
Going from decade to decade, starting in the 1900s and ending in 2015, there’s something for everyone: from Scott Joplin to Leonard Cohen, musical numbers to Mary Oliver, instrumentals to choir pieces, ballads to poems. And there’ll be ice cream on the lawn afterwards!
The revue features church members Juliet Baker, Diane Brookes Brown, Kristen Burkholder, Peter Clain, Charlotte Herbold, The Rev. John Ineson, Linn Johnson, Paige Taylor, Baird Whitlock and the St. Margaret’s Choir directed by John Cuozzo.
St. Margaret’s Church owes its existence to the perseverance and inspired leadership of Maud Gammans (1866-1928) and a small group of friends, both local and “from away,” who undertook the task of bringing an Episcopal church to Belfast. In the last one hundred years, St. Margaret’s has evolved from a dream into a year-round community of worshipers and a vital contributor to the greater Belfast community.
The church is located at 95 Court Street in Belfast. Show starts at 7 p.m. Donations at the door will benefit the Restorative Justice Project (www.rjpmidcoast.org) as part of the church’s outreach mission.
