Fortier to play for kids



BAR HARBOR — Kids can join pianist Deborah Fortier at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, July 21, at 10:30 a.m. for a special children’s program as part of the library’s “On your mark, get set … read!” summer program.

Fortier has composed four books of music, many of them based on poetry written for children by poets including Rose Fyleman, A.A. Milne and Robert Louis Stevenson. She will speak about and perform these pieces. Kids also can look at the picture-books of these same poems she has set to music.

Fortier also will play on Saturday, July 23, at 10:30 a.m. Both of these programs are part of the Bar Harbor Music Festival’s 2016 Young Audience Concert Series. These programs are made possible in part by a grant from the Hattie A. and Fred C. Lynam Trust.

Contact the Jesup at 288-4245 or [email protected].
