Be with us: 5:30-9:30 p.m. Saturday, April 25
April 22 is the actual 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, which has become many things over the years but began as a way to call attention to threats to the habitability of our planet. It has since branched into celebrations of this planet as well. We will hold an online celebration for all generations, beginning with at 5:30 p.m. with a tree planting and children’s stories and moving through the spoken and visual realm, concluding with an evening of music fit for the occasion.
Among our featured musicians we are delighted to have Carlos Odria, an extremely popular and talented guitarist who fuses forms from jazz, Latin and many influences. A native of Peru and music scholar, Carlos is in demand for in venues across Central Mass, and in these live music-restricted times offers us a rare at-home opportunity.
We also invite your participation: We are giving away 100 tree seedlings for planting during the event. Learn more!
