SENSUAL AND SPIRITUAL RENAISSANCE VOICES:
SOULFUL SONG & DANCE

March 16th, Friday, 6PM
March 18th, Sunday, 4PM

Crescendo Vocal Ensemble and dance company Moving Arts Exchange have partnered to capture the essence of Leonhard Lechner and Josquins Masses through sound alongside movement. The original choreography by the members of the company highlights the beauty and meditative character of pieces in the programs via modern dance. The program itself includes Leonhard Lechner’s Song of Solomon, setting the two first chapters of the highly sensualized text to music. As a counterpoint is Josquins Masses’ popular French secular song The Armed Man, which is a distinctly early Renaissance composition. Purchase tickets online $10 Children, $35-60 Adults.

CAMP NORTH STREET
March 18th, Sunday, 11AM-10PM

Remember when you got to go to summer camp and choose between all these amazing activities and everything was right in one place? Hotel on North is recreating that with “Camp North Street” offering a variety of activities for each of the 5 periods that make up the schedule. Music, Arts & Crafts, Free Period and a Campfire get a (slightly) grown up makeover with a songwriting workshop, community yoga, ice skating, terrarium building and film studies. Check out the event on Facebook to view the full schedule and locations and to sign up for each activity. Prices vary for each activity, though many are free.

Starting at 6PM Nancy Lee, of Great Barrington’s Elixir, will provide elixirs and cacao to open the heart and deepen the connection to the ceremony.

BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

DAVID SEDARIS: A HUMOROUS DOSE OF REALITY
April 13th, Friday, 8PM
