Cambridge Associates Paint Benches & Picnic Tables Today AND This Week, Yoga and the Arneis Quartet

15 Aug

Thanks to the employees of Cambridge Associates who volunteered at the park today. They painted benches and picnic tables, weeded the front garden bed, and picked up garbage. Thanks also to Danielle Stehlik of the Charles River Conservancy for organizing this event!

Remember, our last session of yoga for the season is tomorrow, Saturday, Aug. 16th at 9am, just on the Magazine Beach side of the pedestrian footbridge. Bring a mat and a water bottle. Free, but donations are welcome.

And 2 more events in August: next Friday, Aug. 22, 6-8pm, the Arneis Quartet will serenade us and on Sunday, Aug. 31, 3-4pm Bread & Puppet performs their “Nothing is Not Ready Circus.”

About the Arneis Quartet’s program:

It will begin with New England composer George Whitefield Chadwick’s String Quartet no. 4, composed in 1895–a joyful expression of the early American folk style in classical music featuring soaring pentatonic melodies and a Yankee sense of humor. This will be followed by Erwin Schulhoff’s Five Pieces for String Quartet (1924), paying homage to folk music in a different way, evoking a Viennese waltz, a serenade, Czech folk dances, tango, and the tarantella. Mendelssohn’s richly romantic String Quartet in A minor, op. 13 (1827) will complete this elegant program.

Thank you to Tori Cheah for producing this event and to Sanofi and the Charles River Conservancy for sponsoring it! Note: In case of rain, this event will be cancelled.
