Wanda Fern McNeil has deep New England roots and a deep love for all-things-wildlife. She can often be found exploring hiking trails or kayaking the lakes, rivers, and coastal waters of Maine accompanied by her camera. What began as a personal pastime has grown into “Lucky Fern Photography”, where her passion for nature is reflected in her art. Wanda’s wish is to capture and share the beauty of nature, one amazing moment at a time.

Johnny Ater & Friends will kick off our Summer of 2020 CCAC ROCS
Are you ready for a laugh?
Put away that lawn mower. Drop the volley ball and move away from the net. Let’s have some fun. Join Bath’s very own Johnny Ater and friends in a safe and comfortable outdoor environment! These comedians are exactly what the doctor ordered as they add humor and satire to your ‘summ-ah’. Come and join us while we celebrate the season with what we all need most, a dose of laughter.
This is the first of our Summer of 2020 CCAC ROCS, Real Outdoor Concert Series. Join us just across the bridge in Woolwich for this outdoor comedy show. Due to limited capacity we are offering two shows at 3 pm and 6 pm. Check in begins 30 minutes before the show. Check in will happen when you first arrive while you are still in your car. Please wear a mask for check in.
Audiences will be limited to 50 people, and audience members will be required to sit six feet apart from other groups.
You will be able to purchase a ticket for either the afternoon or the evening performance.
Tickets must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold day of show.
We hope you’ll understand that due to the small audience size, we must sell these tickets at a slightly higher price than we normally would. Coming to these shows is one of the best ways you can support our region’s talented performers and the Chocolate Church Arts Center.
All audience members must bring masks or other appropriate face coverings. While these do not need to be worn while seated, we ask that everyone wear a mask when checking in, and when purchasing refreshments. Yes, we will have refreshments available! These will be individually wrapped, and served by a CCAC volunteer following proper safety and health procedures.
Free parking will be available.
All ages are welcome at the shows, but parents/guardians will be responsible for making sure that kids follow the distancing and mask policies.
Audience members are asked to bring their own lawn chair or blanket. Other things to bring include sunscreen, an umbrella to block the sun, bug spray, and hand sanitizer. We will have hand sanitizer available, but it’s a good idea to also bring your own. Please do not bring in outside food or drink.
We are so excited about this series. Right now, this is the best possible way for us to continue our mission of presenting unforgettable live entertainment, while making sure that everyone involved remains safe and healthy. Please reach out to email@example.com or 207-442-8455 with any questions. We look forward to seeing you for a CCAC ROCS show soon!
The “LIVE FROM HOME” Concert Series: Matt Newberg 5/2/20 7:30pm
In the midst of postponed shows at their theater, The Chocolate Church Arts Center will present Live from Home, a series of concerts performed by regional musicians at home that can be streamed online by audience members via Facebook.
Tickets are not necessary for the Live from Home concerts. Audience members will be encouraged to donate to help the organization recover lost revenue due to postponed shows, and to support the performers, many of whom are also facing canceled shows and loss of income.

Brad Terry and Peter Herman will be returning to the Bath United Methodist Church for a concert on Sunday, Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. This concert will feature tunes from the MLK era on this holiday weekend during which we celebrate the life and ministry of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Terry is a jazz clarinet player and accomplished whistler who has played with Dizzy Gillespie, Doc Cheatham, Buck Clayton, Red Mitchell, Buddy Tate, Elliot Zigman, Eddie Thompson, John Basile, Steve Grover and Lenny Breau. He has led jazz workshops and clinics in many countries. The most recognized album featuring Brad Terry is “The Living Room Tapes,” featuring his earlier work with legendary guitarist Lenny Breau. Terry is also author of a book, I Feel More Like I Do Now Than I Did Yesterday: A Collection of Remembered Stories, and signed copies will be offered for sale at the concert.
Peter Herman is an incredibly talented guitarist. Terry says: “We play tunes I’ve known for 50-60 years that he’s hearing for the first time and he brings with him a flood of new and refreshing harmonic and melodic ideas. He has mastered a lot of amazing technique and throws musical curve balls at me, definitely keeping me on my toes. We play a variety of standard jazz tunes and spontaneously create musical conversations that take us to surprising places.”
The duo will play standards from the American song book, Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Duke Ellington and more, all done quietly with lots of interplay — a musical, impromptu conversation.
This event is free but donations will be graciously accepted. Suggested donation $10. Bath UMC is located at 340 Oak Grove Ave, Bath.
The jazz duo will also be leading music during the church’s main worship service at 10:15 a.m., and all are welcome.
