Maine music therapists Carla Tanguay and Kate Beever and Maine-based theater producer and director Stephen Legawiec will report on the workshops they held to help people tell their coronavirus stories on Fridays, April 16 and 23, at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Their work is part of the Jack Pine Project, a community arts project organized by the Maine Folklife Center, Maine Studies Program and Hutchinson Center at the University of Maine.

Tanguay and Beever, who will speak on April 16, conducted separate workshops that taught nonmusicians how to express their thoughts and feelings about the COVID-19 pandemic through songs. Both will present the songs created during their workshops and talk about the process involved, as well as what their students said about the project.

Playwright, director and producer Stephen Legawiec will talk about his workshop “Scenes from a Darkened Stage.” He worked with 10 Maine actors who wrote and performed monologues based on their COVID-19 experiences, several of which will be presented during the talk.

Both talks are free. For more information and to register, email
