A fun concert coming up on July 4 at 4:00 pm at Church of the Good Shepherd in Rangeley - Robert Ludwig's 12th annual Stars and Stripes Concert. 

In addition to some great organ repertoire by Bach, Vierne and George Shearing, he'll be joined by a talented local high school singer to present some of the music of Sigmund Romberg. Best known for his Broadway musicals and operettas, Romberg visited Rangeley in the summer of 1949 and played an organ recital at the original building of Church of the Good Shepherd on Lake Street, across from what is now the library. The event was recounted in the local paper of the time as "the big occasion of the year in Rangeley" and there were hundreds of people packed inside the small church and standing outside. 

The concert will conclude with an inspiring patriotic sing-a-long.
