Palaver Strings at Criterion Theatre
Saturday, November 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm$15-$20
Palaver Strings is a Maine-based musician-led string ensemble and nonprofit organization founded in 2014. Now in its sixth season, Palaver has established itself as a forward-thinking musical group, having performed at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and having toured the East and West coasts of the United States.
Palaver strives to use music to address social issues, promote education and healing and inspire peers and community to support the arts. The name “Palaver” comes from the term “palaver hut,” a place of discussion and conflict resolution in Liberia. In their early days as an ensemble, the group gave benefit concerts for the Liberian Education Fund, and the word “Palaver” has remained central to their vision as they expand their outlook to other social causes.
Tickets for the group’s Nov. 9 performance at the Criterion Theatre in Bar Harbor range from $15-20. For more information, call 288-0829 or visit www.criteriontheatre.org.
