Watkinson School, a coed independent day school for grades 6-PG, announces the second forum of the third season of Freshly Squeezed with Colin McEnroe. The forum, entitled “Can a Song Change the World? Stories of Musical Activism,” is Jan. 14, 2015.
Composer, conductor, pianist and scholar of American music Neely Bruce; folksinger, recording artist and former state troubadour Lara Herscovitch; and rap poet Self Suffice lead a panel that will track the relationship between music and social change, from Woody Guthrie to Pete Seeger to Talib Kweli. And — as is now traditional for our January installment — there will be performances!
Based on the premise that everyone loves a juicy conversation, Watkinson School presents this series of nimble, participatory and personal events hosted by Colin McEnroe. All of the profit from ticket sales benefits the education programs of three shining Hartford institutions: Billings Forge, Hartford Stage and the Mark Twain House. The series is generously sponsored by Fiduciary Investment Advisors.
Tickets are $20 each. All ticket buyers are invited to a complimentary pre-show light meal on Watkinson’s campus prepared by Chef Jon Birney. The dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. All events are held in the Foisie Family Amphitheater at Watkinson School.
