FRYEBURG ME – Welcoming immigrant children from around the globe, the Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus helps restart young lives. War-torn villages, bloodshed, refugee camps, famine, and political turmoil were devastating realities for many of these young singers before being embraced by the warmth, companionship and harmony that Pihcintu provides. Portland, Maine, an ever-expanding international resettlement community, was fertile ground to bring together children from diverse backgrounds to sing as one. Con Fullam, award-winning producer, musician, and songwriter, combined his passion for music with a deep concern for the effect of world issues on children – creating the Chorus with the help of countless supporting souls from all walks of life. This unique chorus of young women from Cambodia, China, Congo, El Salvador, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Viet Nam, British West Indies, and Zambia, along with children whose families have been here for generations, have formed a powerful and permanent bond. Through the healing power of music, these vulnerable, yet brave, young women have learned to trust, hope and laugh again.

New Hampshire Sanctioned & Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition
JACKSON NH – Black Mountain will play host to one of our favorite winter events… The 20th New Hampshire Sanctioned & Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition! Partake in skiing and riding as well as perusing the beautiful snow sculptures. This is a Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce event sponsored by Black Mountain & Nordic Village.
This incredible winter event begins on Friday January 24th at noon when teams from all over the Northeastern part of the United States will converge on Jackson Village. Team will sculpt throughout the weekend and finish up at noon on Sunday the 26th. Spectators are welcome to view the entire process but to see finished pieces it is recommended you come back on Sunday the 26th. See first hand how our sculptors take 8 foot high by 4 foot round cylinder of compacted snow and create incredible art frozen in time. Sculpting pieces usually remain available for viewing for at least a week after the event giving visitors ample time to get coveted photos, however as the weather is a factor we can not guarantee how long they will be standing. At night, during the event, the Sculptures are lit up giving them an entirely different perspective. We anticipate at least 12 or more teams for 2020 and a spectacular show! Check back often for more updates as this is our 20th Anniversary of the event and we will be sure to celebrate it with some exciting enhancements.
