In the Groves: A Summer Solstice Journey

June 19, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

$25

Diane Edgecomb, Storyteller, and Margot Chamberlain, Celtic Harpist

2 Sessions (select one): Friday, June 19, or Saturday, June 20, 6:30–8:30pm

Location: Arnold Arboretum, Hunnewell Building

Enjoy an enchanting evening of Tree Myths, Songs and Summer Solstice Legends. Diane and Margot spin tales of the human connection with trees and the deep meaning we have assigned to them through the ages. This unique performance, designed specifically for the Arnold Arboretum, travels through the Arboretum with story and music. Each story is told under a different tree or among a unique collection of Arboretum plants. The program begins under a grand Cedar of Lebanon, moves into the rosaceous collection, to the oaks of Bussey Hill, then onward to Hemlock Hill, culminating with the haunting Czech legend “The Wild Woman of the Birch Grove” told amid the birches at sunset. Appropriate for adults and for children twelve years and above. Bring a cushion to sit on if you wish. Registrants will walk approximately two miles on and off trails on uneven terrain. The performance takes place rain or shine. In the event of rain, it will be held in the Hunnewell Building lecture hall. Register early for this popular event.
Fee $20 per person through June 10; $25 per person after June 10
