October 14, 2010
Charette graduated from the University of Southern Maine with degrees in Music Education and English, and he now travels throughout the U.S. and Canada performing at schools and concert halls. Elementary teachers across the country use his music in their classrooms to enhance and facilitate their language arts programs. His music has been featured on Peter Pan and Walt Disney Records and been cited in Entertainment Weekly and Billboard magazines. The television broadcast on NBC-TV affiliates in New England entitled "An Evening With Rick Charette" won the National IRIS Award for programming excellence. Concert excerpts of his songs are a regular feature on "The Learning Channel" (national cable).

Charette has released 10 albums, two children's picture books and two live concert videos, which are distributed nationally and have sold over a quarter million copies to date. His 10th album, "King Kong Chair" (his newest collection of original songs), was released in March 2004. In 2009, he recorded his third DVD of a live concert filmed at Deertrees Theater in Harrison, Maine, in which several new songs were debuted, in addition to a new version of his timeless classic "I Love Mud."

A life-long resident of Maine, Charette and his wife have three grown children, and he continues to enjoy performing and creating music for young children and families. Tickets are available at the Box Office by calling 207-935-9232 or on the school website at www.fryeburgacademy.org.
