A Capella Groups, Painting, and Musical Theatre, Oh My!

Who doesn’t love A Capella music?  Tight harmonies, fun lyrics, and an all around good time, which may be why our featured a capella group is aptly named Good-Time Sounds.  Good-Time Sounds has been singing together for over two years.  They first harmonized as the cast of the clever musical Forever Plaid at the Waterville Opera House and they enjoyed the sounds and company so much that they just kept on “busting chords” together as an a capella quartet!  They love to sing and perform a variety of musical genres from doo-wop to barbershop, contemporary to classical.  Some of their favorites are Blue Moon, Brown-Eyed Girl, Happy Together, King of the Road, Mood Indigo, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, and the list goes on.  So come hear this fantastic group singing at Stillwater Artsapalooza on June 25 at Verve from 6:00-6:40p.m. and then again at The Store from 7:00-7:40 p.m.

One of the fantastic visual artists who will be featured at Stillwater Artsapalooza is the incomparable Julie Miller.  Julie Miller, a beloved nurse for School Union 87 (Orono and Veazie) until 2000, lives in Old Town, Maine, and now has an Art Studio, “FeatherStone”, where she creates works of watercolor, pen and ink, silver and feather jewelery and notecards.  Julie describes her art as the following:
“Within my paintings, I hope to give voice to those that could not speak for themselves. My medium is mostly watercolor inks, and india ink. all of my images come to me in dreamtime, and the poetry I share with them are their stories.. 
may your journey be a walk of peace, hope and light.”  Julie’s work will be at Stillwater Artsapalooza on June 25 on display at Ted Curtis Law Offices from 6:00p.m.-10:00p.m. To see more work by this fantastic artist visit her website:
