Kingfield POPS Concert presents the Bangor Symphony Orchestra on June 27th
For one day each summer, music resonates through western Maine’s mountains and valleys, drawing thousands to the riverside town of Kingfield. The 13th Annual Kingfield POPS will present the Bangor Symphony Orchestra conducted by Grammy Award winning Lucas Richman on June 27.
Maine’s own Rustic Overtones will bring a new sound to the Kingfield POPS as they perform as a group and with the BSO. The indie rock Rustic Overtones sound is strongly influenced by a unique mixture of genres including soul and jazz. The Portland based 7-member band has a discography that spans more than 20 years. The orchestra and Rustic Overtones will be complemented by other musical artists performing throughout the evening.
From the welcoming sounds of the Western Mountain Trash Can Band to the last echo of a firework grand finale, music will have toes tapping, children dancing and faces smiling. The Kingfield Art Walk, a road race, Kingfield POPS Festival of the Arts, an introductory guided mountain bike ride hosted by the Carrabassett Valley chapter of NEMBA and other family-friendly activities round out the celebration of music and art.
Picnics are welcome, blankets or lawn chairs encouraged. The 2015 Kingfield POPS will be held at the Kennedy Farm, Route 142 in Kingfield. Gates open at 4:30 p.m. Early Bird tickets are $20 until May 15. From May 15 to gate opening, tickets are $25. At the gate, tickets will be $30. Youth 17 and under are always free.
