Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus sings out in Vienna

September 16, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Generous donations

The Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus will present an afternoon concert at the Vienna Union Hall (5 Vienna Mountain Road, Vienna, ME) at 3 PM.   Tickets are available for reservation by contacting Tim Davis at viennaunionhall@gmail.com.  We are asking for your generous donations to support this group and suggested ticket prices range from $5 to $25.  There will be a brief “meet and greet” following the concert.

War-torn villages, bloodshed, refugee camps, famine, and political turmoil were devastating realities for many of these young singers before being embraced by the warmth, companionship and harmony that Pihcintu provides.

The power of survival eases but never erases the memory of unthinkable atrocities, physical danger and personal tragedy. Portland, Maine, an ever-expanding international resettlement community, was fertile ground to bring together children from diverse backgrounds to sing as one. Con Fullam, award-winning producer, musician, and songwriter, combined his passion for music with a deep concern for the effect of world issues on children – creating The Chorus with the help of countless supporting souls from all walks of life. This unique chorus of young women from Cambodia, China, Congo, El Salvador, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Viet Nam, British West Indies, and Zambia, along with children whose families have been here for generations, have formed a powerful and permanent bond. Through the healing power of music, these vulnerable, yet brave, young women have learned to trust, hope and laugh again. The children and their music are transformative. Being in their presence is a life-enhancing experience and they touch the hearts of all who hear them!
