13th Annual Revels RiverSing
Sunday, September 18, 2016
Co-hosted by Revels music director Megan Henderson & David Coffin, songleader
Join thousands of voices in song as Revels waves goodbye to summer and welcomes in the fall at this FREE family-friendly Autumnal Equinox celebration taking place in Harvard Square and along the Charles River in Cambridge. Enjoy pre-show festivities, a puppet-filled parade and communal singing with The Revels Chorus, guest soloists, and a fabulous folk band.
We're keeping a close eye on the weather. Check here on Sunday for status updates. Should we need to cancel RiverSing, we will announce it here.
Words to all of the songs we'll be singing will be provided in the RiverSing program, available at the event. However, you are welcome to download a copy of the lyrics here.
