Ellacapella to perform at Jesup March 30 (Sun. 21 Dec, 2014 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm)
BAR HARBOR — Ellacapella, an all-female a capella group, will bring their intricate harmonies to the Jesup Memorial Library on Sunday, March 30, for a concert that begins at 2 p.m. What started one afternoon with few friends singing simple harmonies together at a picnic more than a decade ago has blossomed into a dynamic group of nearly a dozen women who work many hours every week to bring the gift of song to their community. The group’s members are from all over the Blue Hill Peninsula and beyond, including the towns of Brooksville, Blue Hill, East Blue Hill and Surry, Ellsworth and Bangor. They hail from many different walks of life and many different professions: doctors, teachers, business owners, artists, government workers and retirees. With an age gap of nearly 50 years from the most junior to the most senior member, there is never a dull moment when you're with the Ellas! Each woman brings a unique personality and talent to the group. It's always exciting and never boring. Their concert at the Jesup is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to support the library. Refreshments will be served after the concert.
