UMM’s Town Chorus and Pop Band to perform Dec. 10 and 11

Community members and students at the University of Maine at Machias will present two nights of free public concerts at the Performing Arts Center in December.

On Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m., the Town Chorus will perform seasonal and holiday numbers, original compositions, and Franz Schubert’s Miriam’s Song of Triumph, Opus 136, featuring soprano Beth Goodliff.
