The Denmark Arts Center concludes its summer concert series at the Bridgton Twin Drive-In Sunday, Sept. 12, with a performance by the multifaceted, multitalented but never predictable Gina Williams.

Born in Canada and now a resident of Washington state, Williams will be a visiting music teacher at Fryeburg Academy this fall. She has mastered a wide range of genres from soul, pop and gospel to jazz, classical and electronica, and is known for her vibrant live performances.

She is also a classically trained pianist, a composer, a producer and an actress. Her show at the drive-in should be a dynamic breath of fresh air to set the stage for autumn.

Tickets are $50 per car, five person maximum. The gate opens at noon and concerts start at 1 p.m. Guests should bring lawn chairs to set up in front of their vehicles and coolers with food and nonalcoholic drinks. Please leave pets at home. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to
