  • Soprano Mary Johnson Letellier and pianist Angela Olszta* will present songs by Gounod and Puccini
  • Violinist Eleanor Lehmann and pianist Scott Eaton will perform the Sonatina Op.137, No. 1 by Franz Schubert

The newest quartet to join the Downeasters Barbershop Chorus family, Odds ’n’ Ends has been together for about 2 years. However, even in that short time they have already accomplished some great things. They are the 2017 Granite & Pine Division Champions, earning that title in late April 2017 in Windham, NH. This title, earned by outscoring quartets from all over NH and ME, has been won by other Downeasters quartets in the past as well, and the quartet is excited for what will come from the next part of their journey, where they will join Exchange Street Quartet and Port City Sound in Manchester, CT to compete with the best quartets in New England.
