The fourth and final music program of Cushing Historical Society’s summer music series will be a program for two violins presented by the Davis Duo Sunday, July 17, at 4 p.m. at the the Old South Cushing Baptist Church, located on Salt Pond Road, which connects Pleasant Point Road to Route 97.

The Davis sisters have been performing in the area since their childhood and said they are always thrilled when they can play again for their fans at home in a setting that is serene and where the acoustics are superb. They also are a part of the Solstice string quartet that performed in the historical society’s barn last month.

Violinists Josie and Sophie Davis, of Waldoboro, completed the double degree program at Oberlin College and Conservatory, where they studied violin with David Bowlin and pursued liberal arts degrees in the college. Josie studied sociology and Sophie is completing her degree in environmental studies. They have played together since they began studying violin and are grateful they were able to spend two years studying music together at Oberlin.

The sisters have performed together throughout Maine and Ohio; at the Monte Festival in Goa, India; and, in 2010, on NPR’s “From the Top.” They are committed teachers and have private studios in Rhode Island and Ohio. In addition, they have taught children in India, Argentina, Panama and Australia through travel and study abroad experiences.

Suggested donation is $10.
