The Lifesongs Project celebrates the stories of LGBTQ+ people in our local community. Working with professional songwriters and engineers, project participants write and record original songs of love, loss, courage, and affirmation. This project was originally conceived by Palaver Strings cellist Matthew Smith as a songwriting collaboration between queer people and musicians to write, record and celebrate queer voices and experiences. Come show your pride for Maine’s LGBTQ community at Palaver’s Lifesongs Celebration Concert where storytellers will share songs written and recorded from the past few weeks! This event will be followed by a panel discussion with storytellers and their musical guides.

🕯️ The dance show of the summer is Scapegoat Garden’s Liturgy|Order|Bridge. The Hartford-based company calls upon Black church traditions and ideas of faith, nature, fashion, and experimentation in their limited performance run June 20-22. Tickets available now, presented by SPACE at Mechanics’ Hall. 🕯️
