*Guest Performers

John Bennett, cello: Formerly from the San Francisco Bay area of California, John Bennett and his wife relocated to Portland, Maine in 2018. He attended San Francisco State University and California State College, East Bay, and his cello teachers included Margaret Rowell, Irene Sharp, and Lazlo Varga, and studies with Burton Kaplan at his Magic Mountain practice retreats. For many years John taught students of all levels and ages in his private studio, and led workshops and cello ensembles. For 20 years he was the adjunct cello instructor at Pacific Union College and the Paulin Center for the Creative Arts in Angwin, California, where he taught lessons, coached chamber music, and conducted a youth orchestra. At the present John, is teaching at the Portland Conservatory of Music. In addition to teaching, he was a tenured member of the Vallejo and Napa Valley Symphonies, freelanced as much as possible, and performed in chamber music and duo recitals. John’s greatest loves have always been helping and guiding students of all ages and levels achieve their musical goals, and playing chamber music.

Iris Ensemble, which is part of Portland Conservatory’s Girl Singers of Maine, usually meets for one and one-half hours on Monday evenings throughout the school year and is accompanied by David Vernier. These singers must be self-motivated, responsible individuals with a desire to grow and develop as musicians. Their repertoire comes from the finest written for women’s voices and includes sacred and secular; medieval to modern; classical, folk, gospel, and non-traditional modern tunes. Members of Iris Ensemble are very active in school and community events, including sports, theater, and various musical organizations, and devote time to community service. The Iris Ensemble was preparing to travel in April of this year.

Performer

EdmundBullockEdmund Barton “Bart” Bullock has been leading a double career as composer and pianist with success, performing his own major works and chamber music throughout the United States and Europe. He scored a musical triumph in June, 2016 with the world premiere of a commissioned Te Deum based on a 4th century Latin text. The event, performed at the Cathedral Ste. Marie of Auch in France, enjoyed the patronage of His Royal Highness, Prince Henrik of Denmark, regional governors and high church officials of France, Knights of the Order of Malta, and a community of French aristocrats.

Bullock’s perfect fluency in French and his excellence as a composer and pianist have made him popular in French society. He is the artistic director of an annual music festival in the Comminges region of southwestern France and performs on a regular basis at other venues while working on commissioned compositions. He continues to be a frequent French radio guest and performer while maintaining his collaborations in the United States with two to three visits each year.
