GREETINGS – The school year is coming to a close, which means a lot of final exhibits and shows. This week – a concert tonight by COA’s chorus and chamber ensemble, a fascinating talk on nuclear power from an environmentalist (Tuesday), a fundraiser at Red Sky Wednesday, and then Contrapposto, an original play, written, directed, and acted by Alicia Hynes ’11. This is NOT for young people as there are adult themes. Thursday – Saturday. There’s also a talk at Beech Hill Farm on Saturday. Finally, a fascinating talk on the rights of nature on Tuesday. As we move into the summer season, this notice will be offered less frequently – stay tuned! And enjoy.
