Rockland Public Library hosts a virtual concert by the Davis Duo on Thursday, July 23, at 2 p.m. The concert will be held via the Zoom platform.

Josie and Sophie Davis will perform a violin concert featuring a range of styles including classical, jazz and folk. The Davis sisters grew up in Waldoboro and have recently returned to Maine where they are committed to teaching and performing music throughout the Midcoast area, both as a duo and as members of Halcyon, a Maine-based string quartet dedicated to cultivating an appreciation and awareness of the natural world and climate change.

In 2017, Sophie was awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Research Grant to spend nine months in Samoa, where she explored the ways in which the arts can raise awareness of climate change. In addition to pursuing research, Sophie taught and performed with the National Orchestra of Samoa. Josie has studied at the Juilliard String Quartet Seminar, Bowdoin International Music Festival and Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival. She is committed to creating more chamber music opportunities for young people and is the founder and director of summer workshops for young people in Maine and Connecticut.
