Join us on Thursday, May 31 at 7:30 p.m. as Revels partners with Perkins School for the Blind for a 12th consecutive year in a memorable music-filled “Celebration of the Spring."
This hour-long participatory performance of seasonal music and song features the talented Perkins School Secondary Program Chorus (Arnie Harris, director) performing with adults and children from Revels’ touring ensemble, Revels Repertory Company, Revels song leader and musician David Coffin, the renowned Perkins Duo – Anton Sviridenko (piano, accordion) and John Castillo (baritone, drums) – plus a great band of Revels musicians.
The Mulberry Morris children’s dance team will also be on hand performing a festive Garland Dance. Last but not least, expect a wild visit from that ancient harbinger of spring, the Padstow ‘Obby ‘Oss, all the way from Cornwall, England!
Revels artistic director Patrick Swanson oversees the production. George Emlen is music director.
“Celebration of the Spring” is FREE and open to the public. Please join us for this rewarding night of music, dance and song.
