UMFK will host an afternoon of an Acadian-inspired classical musical concert featuring Baritone Jared Andrew Michaud, Soprano Melanie Saucier, and Pianist Christina Maria Koti. 

The performance will also serve as a kick-off fundraising event for improvements to Fox Auditorium beyond what was earmarked in 2023 by University of Maine System workforce development and innovation funding in the omnibus spending bill secured by the leadership of Maine’s congressional delegation. The auditorium serves the UMFK campus and the community at large with performances, lectures, and meetings.

“Whether hosting a town meeting or a drama production put on by the local high school, this facility is a cornerstone of the community,”said UMFK President Deb Hedeen. “These fundraising efforts will ensure Fox Auditorium can continue to play a leading role in bringing our community together for generations to come.”

The tickets are available on four levels: Performance only: $25 per person and doors open at 1:30 p.m.; Prelude: Enjoy a wine and cheese social prior to the performance for $50 and doors open at12:30 p.m.; Encore: Attend the performance and delight in a champagne and dessert social with the performers following the performance for $50; and a VIP Experience: All in one level to include wine and cheese, performance,followed by the champagne and dessert social for $75.
