Thanks to all who shared their talents at the recent Orono Arts Cafe, Friday April 11th at the Keith Anderson Community House! The combined celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month and National Poetry Month was fantastic, and the “mystery guest” who flew in for the second half of the show certainly added to the excitement. What surprises might be in store for the next OAC? Wait and see!
2013 Orono Arts Cafes raised just about $1,000 for Spring 2014 Scholarships for students in grades 4-12! Many thanks to everyone who works these monthly events, performs, and/or attends! This year’s scholarship winners will be announced soon!
Thank you for supporting the arts in the Orono schools and community!
