This, our 15th annual Music in April event will combine wonderful dining, live music, silent and live auctions, as well as some unscheduled surprises. Donations of enticing auction items contribute to the Music in April festivities and inspire enthusiastic bidders who will help the event meet its fundraising goal. 

Music in April is THE signature fundraiser for People Plus. It enables us to serve the greater Brunswick community by offering a variety of activities to support engaged, healthy and independent lives for older adults, as well as hosting the Teen Center where young people can meet safely to explore creative outlets, participate in inter-generational activities, and develop into well-rounded adults. People Plus also provides outreach and transportation services, and offers a many volunteer opportunities.

People Plus is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. 100 percent of all funds raised stay here in our Brunswick area community, and are tax deductible.

2017 Musicians

Touching Base
A local group that loves the traditional organ trio formula. We pride ourselves with creating a full sound while keeping our volume low enough for whatever room we are in so people can enjoy both us and their conversations. The musicians, all from Bath and Arrowsic, are Lawrence Kovacs (organ), Bob Knowles (guitar), and Dave Rawson (drums).

Porch Time Quartet
Porch Time is a successful Barbershop Harmony Society District Quartet that was formed in the Spring of 2014. Recently, members of the Nor’easter chorus had an opportunity to join this excellent ensemble. As a result, Porch Time has several participants giving us redundancy in voice parts.  Quartet participants for tonight’s Music in April Gala are Al Sargent (tenor), Lew Flagg (lead),  Brad Mitchell (baritone), and Ed Robinson (bass).
