Houdini was known as the King of Cards. Due to Viktor Zenko’s charming Russian accent and amazing card skills he is known as The Card Czar. In fact, Viktor was chosen as a Gold Medal Finalist by the International Brotherhood of Magicians for his incredible ability to manipulate a deck of playing cards. You’ll not only be impressed with Viktor Zenko’s skill as a magician, but you’ll LOVE his showmanship! After seeing Viktor perform, David Copperfield the greatest illusionist of our time said, “The audience loved you.” Viktor's show is filled with Incredible Illusions, Hilarious Comedy, and Adventurous Audience Participation. You'll gasp with amazement as Viktor reads your mind, laugh hysterically as he demonstrates his uncanny ability as a Human Lie Detector, and you'll applaud thunderously as he presents his mind-boggling routines.   FAQs What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Back by popular demand, Heather Masse and Jed Wilson returns to the UUCB Concerts for a Cause series on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick. Maine native Heather Masse is well-known to audiences as a regular guest on the NPR radio show A Prairie Home Companion, both as a solo performer and as a member of the Billboard-charting folk supergroup, The Waylin Jennys. On the show, Heather has collaborated with artists such as Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, and Emmylou Harris. She has also performed in many venues and with other popular groups such as the bluegrass band The Wayfaring Strangers on NPR's World Cafe, and at Bostons Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops. For this concert, Heather joins forces with jazz pianist Jed Wilson. Heather and Jed met as jazz students at the New England Conservatory of Music and have been performing together for more than 10 years. Heather's background is steeped in the jazz tradition, which informs her distinct approach to singing folk, pop and bluegrass. In 2008, Ms. Masse released Many Moons, an EP of jazz-inspired folk duets with Mr. Wilson. Jed also played on Heathers first full-length solo album Bird Song. Her solo debut on Red House Records, showcased her luscious alto voice and her superb songwriting. The title track Bird Song won her 1st prize at the International Acoustic Music Awards, and in 2012 she also won a prestigious Juno Award for Bright Morning Stars, her latest recording with The Wailin Jennys. Masse exhibits impeccable phrasing and a lush sound that suggests the sensuousness of Sophie Milman shot through with somber, Sarah Vaughan threads.

Holding up the Sky explores Wabanaki philosophies of leadership and obligation relating to humans and non-humans by highlighting 13,000 years of Wabanaki residence in what is now known as Maine. Wabanaki advisors guided the exhibition, interpreting 17th century colonial treaties, photographs, heritage items, and contemporary artworks—everything from ash baskets to haute couture fashion. Wabanaki voices provide context for the present-day relevance and repercussions of 400 years of shared histories between Wabanaki people and immigrants to their region. In addition to items from Maine Historical Society collections and newly-commissioned pieces from Wabanaki artists, the exhibition will feature artifacts generously loaned by many individuals and organizations, including: Abbe Museum, Hudson Museum, Passamaquoddy Cultural Heritage Museum, Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Maine State Museum, Nova Scotia Museum, and Bangor Historical Society. Holding Up the Sky was developed in collaboration with a team of advisors, including Lisa Brooks (Abenaki), James Francis (Penobscot), Suzanne Greenlaw (Maliseet), Darren Ranco (Penobscot), Theresa Secord (Penobscot), Ashley Smith (Wabanaki descent), and Donald Soctomah (Passamaquoddy).

Ready Or Not For too long, women have been shunted to the sidelines of history, their voices silenced and their influence minimized. The history of classical music is no exception, and even the most gifted female musicians were discouraged from pursuing their careers, their work relegated to the footnotes of music history textbooks. Even today as more opportunities open up for female performers, composers, directors, and producers, these systemic injustices persist. With music from the renaissance, twentieth century, and a world premiere by Sato Matsui, Ready Or Not celebrates the diverse voices and unique artistic visions of women throughout the ages, who have always made music whether the world was ready or not. PROGRAM Madrigal Morir non può il mio cuore, Maddalena Casulana Andante Moderato from string quartet in G Major, Florence Price (1929) Within Her Arms, Anna Clyne Concerto for Strings, Grazyna Bacewicz (1948) Original Commission TBD PALAVER STRINGS is a Maine-based musician-led string ensemble and nonprofit organization founded in 2014. Now in its sixth season, Palaver has established itself as a forward-thinking ensemble whose mission is rooted in community and creative programming. Palaver has performed at the Kennedy Center, a celebration of the Lullaby Project at Carnegie Hall, and has toured the East and West Coasts of the United States. Palaver was Ensemble in Residence at the Boston Center for the Arts from 2017-2019, and continues a longstanding residency at Bay Chamber Concerts in Rockport, ME. This season, Palaver is a resident ensemble at the Shalin Liu Center in Rockport, MA. Equally passionate about education, Palaver has recently launched the Palaver Community Music School in Portland, ME, fostering creativity and dialogue and making high-quality music education accessible to students of all backgrounds.
