Community-based chorus HeartSong will sing Sunday, June 16, at 4 p.m. at the United Christian Church, 18 Searsmont Road/Route 173, in Lincolnville Center. The second program in the Music and Reflections for the Season series, this 45-minute program will offer special music provided by HeartSong, selected seasonal poems and time for quiet reflection. All are welcome.

HeartSong is a volunteer chorus that offers songs of comfort and peace to those who are in ill health or who are approaching the end of life. Their calming, soft harmonies can open hearts, ease fears, and bring comfort to everyone present including family members and caregivers. Music is selected to be sensitive to the physical and emotional state of the patient and to suit their musical and spiritual preferences. Members of HeartSong are available to sing in private homes, hospital rooms, nursing homes and hospice settings.  For more information or to schedule a HeartSong service, contact Jean Goldfine at 338-3080.

The United Christian Church will offer Music and Reflections for the Season through the summer and into the fall. On July 21, there will be an old fashion Hymn Sing. On Aug. 18, Ann McCullough will perform an organ recital with a special performance by guest organist Ray Cornils. A Taizé service will be held on Sept. 15. All concerts are held at 4 p.m. and are free of charge, but donations are gladly received.

The church is fully handicapped accessible. Donations from this concert will benefit HeartSong's service to the community. For more information, call Mary Schulien, music director, at 785-3521.
