July in Maine holds many delights — sea breezes and sailboats on Casco Bay, picnics under shady trees, hikes in the mountains and along the coast. And yet, like every part of the earth, this climate is changing in ways both apparent and, as yet, unknown. We can experience the joy of the beauty surrounding us while also holding the complexities of living in a climate-changed world — and the arts offer us new language to engage this new world.

This July, we invite you to join us for a special, in-person concert featuring Halcyon String Quartet and the visual art of climate scientist, educator, and artist Jill Pelto. Allow the music to soothe, to challenge, to stir your emotions — all within the graceful and historic structure of Portland’s Williston-Immanuel United Church.
