August 5 Concert to Restore Priceless Windows


Classical guitarist Winslow Browning will present a solo recital on Saturday, August 5 at 7:00PM at the Congregational Christian Church, at Main and Church Streets, Lubec, ME. Event proceeds will be used to restore the church’s priceless stained glass windows that were damaged from Hurricane Arthur in 2014. The program features music by Dowland, Duarte, Lauro and Domeniconi - and there might be a story or two. A suggested donation of $20 is requested but any and all contributions are welcome.

An annual visitor to Maine since 1999, Browning says “I feel a strong connection to the village of Lubec and wanted to help facilitate the windows’ restoration. They are a tribute to Lubec’s past but also represent hope for the future.” Browning is wellknown to downeast audiences through his long association with the SummerKeys music program. His programs include a blend of a variety of musical styles and charming stories. The August 5 program selections were chosen to reflect the mosaic of colors in the beautiful windows.

Winslow Browning has performed to critical acclaim from Lubec, ME to Key West, FL and from New York, NY to Berlin, Germany. He has appeared as a recitalist, chamber musician and soloist with orchestras in the United States, Canada, Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
