Music in April 2020

18th Annual Music in April Gala Fundraiser

Due to the pandemic, Music in April will not be able to happen in 2020

This would have been our 18th annual Music in April gala 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.

2020 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).

BOKA is a co-ed, collegiate a cappella group based at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME. We perform and arrange songs ranging from classic rock to pop to traditional melodies.  Our members share an enthusiasm for music as a mode of self-expression and entertainment, and value its ability to bring together people from a wide array of backgrounds and lifestyles. In performance, BOKA aims to strike a balance between musicianship and fun, believing that if our audiences can see how much we love making music, our excitement will be infectious. BOKA stands for “Bowdoin’s Original Co-ed Acapella group” but because of copyright issues the “C” was changed to “K”.
