Watson Fellowship in 2013 to explore human conceptions of waste around the world. She returned to MDI following her fellowship and in the fall of 2014 conducted a weeklong discarded resource audit and awareness project at COA. She is now pursuing a master’s degree at the college and investigating solutions to the school’s and the greater community’s disposal practices.          She will present vignettes of compost laboratories in Germany, sewage recycling and food production in the wetlands of Kolkata, India, waste management in China and Japan's underwater landfills. She will draw parallels between these places, her native country of Sweden, and waste management on MDI.          Her experience managing COA’s compost program led her to write a case study on composting for her senior project.  Now, back from her yearlong adventure, she is continuing her efforts to understand and reduce wasteful behaviors, using COA and MDI as case studies.           For more information, contact Gary Friedmann at 207-460-7362.

Good Friday Concert: Joseph Haydn’s “The Seven Last Words of Christ” (Fri. 3 Apr, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

  Joseph Haydn’s “The Seven Last Words of Christ” for string quartet to be performed at Columbia Street Baptist Church, by the Hallelujah String Quartet April, 3, 7:00 pm.   Bangor, Maine, March 4, 2015.  Betsy Kobayashi, the founder of Pineland Suzuki School in Manchester, will bring the Hallelujah String Quartet to Bangor for a performance of Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece “The Seven Last Words of Christ”. Composed in 1783 for the Good Friday service at the Cathedral of Cádiz in Spain, it is considered to be one of the greatest pieces of Easter music.            

Hayden’s seven sonatas are meditations on the following phrases gathered from the four Christian Gospels: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." "Surely, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise." "Woman, behold your son! Behold your mother!" "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" "I thirst." "It is finished!" "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit."              

Twenty years ago, violinist Betsy Kobayashi of Manchester, ME, had a dream. Her dream was to bring to Maine, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s lifetime belief that music lies in the heart of any and every child: “I believe that every child can become superior, and my confidence has never been betrayed.” Betsy studied under Dr. Suzuki for 7 years, graduating from the Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto, Japan. Since the early 1990’s, hundreds of Maine children have found their voices through violin, viola and cello at the Pineland Suzuki School.   

For 17 consecutive Good Fridays, Betsy has led a string quartet in the sacred performance of Joseph Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ. On April 3 at 7:00 pm, her “Halleluiah String Quartet” (comprised of members of the Pineland Suzuki School Faculty and Student Quartet) will perform Haydn’s masterpiece at Columbia Street Baptist Church (CSBC) in Bangor.  

Dr. Stan Moody, Senior Pastor at CSBC, credits Betsy with the spark that ignited the spirit of his cellist son, Jonathan, a performance music major at Susquehanna University. “I have watched children come alive under Betsy’s leadership”, Moody says. “The patient, faithful contribution that Betsy has made to my own ministry has deeply enriched me. I guarantee that those who attend this concert will find nothing to compare with it this side of NY.”    

The Good Friday concert will be offered at no charge to the public as a gift to Bangor from CSBC. Instead, a freewill offering will be taken. All are welcome.    

Diver Ed to show icy diving videos at Jesup (Fri. 3 Apr, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Join us at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, April 3 at 7 p.m. to see the videos, talk to their creator, and get a behind-the-scenes look at what it took for him to make it happen.           Mr. Monat is well known for his diving adventures.  The Town Hill resident has been diving for 33 years, much of it in Maine. He came to Bar Harbor from Massachusetts to attend College of the Atlantic in 1984. A former lobsterman, harbormaster, and special education teacher, he works now as a commercial diver, scuba instructor, marine ecologist and hand harvester,  and he can still be found taking tubs of sea creatures into classrooms in the area to educate kids about marine life, something he did for years before starting the venture that he is now best known for, Diver Ed’s Dive-In Theater. During the summer and his wife Edna “Captain Evil” Martin operate the Dive-In Theater aboard their boat, the Starfish Enterprise, with the help of a few crew members and their two Newfoundland dogs. His constant companion during Dive-In theater dives, which are broadcast on board so passengers can see what Mr. Monat is up to underwater, is Mini-Ed, a toy diver currently in his 162nd  incarnation.  Mr. Monat also dives with members of the dive club he started on MDI, the League of Underwater Superheroes. The group frequently stages clean-ups of local harbors.           He dives around the world. “But my passion is showing people how much fun diving in Maine can be,” says.  That includes donning a drysuit and breaking through ice, sometimes in a snowstorm, to dive this winter.  Come find out more about his frigid adventures at the Jesup.           For more information, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245.   ###
