I don't think we're printing up T-shirts but we have an opportunity to sing at community events the weekend before and the weekend after our main concert, so I'm declaring this our spring tour.
We will be working out the kinks and singing in Jamaica Plain for the Wake Up the Earth Festival. Wake Up the Earth is an annual event organized by the community artists and activists at Spontaneous Celebrations. These are some photos from previous WUtE Festivals. The place and time of our performance is still to be determined but block out the afternoon of Saturday May 7, 2011 and watch this space!
Updated: We will be performing at 5pm at the Stony Brook T Station (Orange Line). Look for the people in the white shirts.
The next weekend will be the official Newton Family Singers spring concert! We've been putting on concerts for over a year, can you believe it? Sunday, May 15 at 4pm, we will be taking the stage at the Newton Highlands Congregational Church (54 Lincoln St, Newton, MA; they also helpfully provide coordinates on their website in case you're arriving by parachute: 42o19.274' North 71o12.477' West ). And yes, that's the weekend of Newton Open Studios. Go check out some artists, buy some jewelry or a print and then come listen to an inter-generational choir sing songs about the Sun, Moon and Stars.
Just to be clear, this is the concert that we're all geared up for, the entire group will be there and our adrenaline will be pumping. If you are choosing which venue to see us at, this is the one! Sunday, May 15, 4pm, 54 Lincoln Street, Newton Highlands.
Did you love those shows?
If so, you get a chance to see us again the following Sunday, May 22 at Waban Village Day. Hmm... well, hopefully the official website will get updated, but for photos from 2010, check out this Flickr stream; we're the ones in the white shirts. Location: Waban Village, time to be determined.
Special Bonus: if you come to all three concerts, we will "friend" you on Facebook! (Or just find us on Facebook and ask and we'll friend you.)
