Admission is FREE
JOIN US on May 29th as Revels partners with Perkins School for the Blind for the fourteenth consecutive year in a memorable music-filled "Celebration of the Spring."
This hour-long performance of seasonal music, song and dance (some with an Irish flavor!) will feature the talented Perkins School Secondary Program Chorus (Arnie Harris, director), The Revels Singers, song leader and musician David Coffin, renowned violinist and Perkins student, Anton Sviridenko, plus a great band of Revels musicians. Audiences will also enjoy Irish step-dancer Harper Mills who was featured in last year's Christmas Revels plus a Garland dance by the Mulberry Morris children's dance team. Last but not least, expect a wild visit from that ancient harbinger of spring, the Padstow 'Obby 'Oss, all the way from Cornwall, England!
Revels' partnership with Perkins School for the Blind these past thirteen years has been rewarding for all of us in so many ways. We hope you can share the joy of this special evening with us.
Celebration of the Spring is free and open to the public. No reservations are required.
