Homes needed for visiting musiciansThe Astoria Music Festival, now in its seventh season, will run from June 19 to June 28. The complete program, performers and a downloadable ticket order form can be found at (

The Home-Stay Hosts Committee is seeking local home-stay hosts to provide housing for the visiting musicians and vocalists. These out-of-town performers need a room of their own, a bathroom and a separate place in the refrigerator. They will be rehearsing all day and performing at night, and the stays can vary in length from a night or two to two weeks for the vocal apprentices.

For information about becoming a host, go to the Astoria Music Festival Center at 160 10th St. or call (503) 325-9896. The office is open between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily.
