Picnic in the Park to the Arneis Quartet
Friday August 22, 6-8 pm Free
Praised for their “beautiful sound” (Beijing Global Times), the Arneis Quartet is proving to be one of the finest emerging ensembles of its generation.“As a relatively young quartet, they have already achieved something it often takes years to develop: a unique, collective sound which is as warm and full of sparkle as liquid gold” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Foodtrucks, too: Whole Foods and Taco Party! In case of rain, this event is cancelled. Thank you to Sanofi, our lead sponsor for this summer’s programs at Magazine Beach!
Bread and Puppet Theater
Sunday August 31, 3-4 pm Free
The Nothing Is Not Ready Circus is for the not yet existing upriser masses and their kids who need to practice their upriser skills by teaming up with butterflies, cockroaches and elephants. Lions, horses and dogs are also employed to invent the correct rhythmical patterns that fight planetary destruction. The boot flags of the 15th century peasant revolution lead the way, with a lively brass band for accompaniment. Bread & Puppet‘s “Circus” acts can often be politically puzzling to adults, but accompanying kids can usually explain them. Sourdough rye bread will be served and cheap art will be available for donation after the performance. Presented with assistance from the Cambridge Arts Council and the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association. Rain Location: Cambridge Community Center at 5 Callender Street.
