BAGADUCE CHORALE PRESENTS A WARING BLEND

The Bagaduce Chorale Holiday Concert will take on a decidedly Fred Waring look on

Friday, December 10, at 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday, December 11 at 3 p.m. at the First

Congregational Church of Blue Hill.
    
     Music Director Bronwyn Kortge of Lamoine has reached into the past this season to celebrate the

creative genius of Fred Waring who set to choral music so many familiar holiday tunes. Waring and

his Pennsylvanians, the group's moniker, recorded and inspired much of the music associated with

this holiday season, including White Christmas, Winter Wonderland and a special rendition of Rudolph

the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
    
     "When I was a little girl," Kortge said, "it just wasn't Christmas until we played the music of Fred

Waring and his Pennsylvanians on the hi-fi.
