This week’s Walker Open Field Acoustic Campfire performance blends perfectly with our Kitchen Lab residency program that just happens to be hosting an unveiling of the Kitchen Labs on Thursday night as well. How, you might ask, do kitchens and musical performances go together?
Mixed Precipitation, a performance company exploring text, space and form with festive theatrical events that inspire social engagement, presents a short and informal set of songs performed by the cast of their infamous community garden opera: The Return of King Idomeneo, A Picnic Operetta! Starting at 8 pm on Thursday June 28, join in the fun event celebrating music for the hearth.
Sing along with songs of graciousness, praising food, drink, and the joys of sharing the gastronomic experience. The group will be including music by local composer Abbie Betinis and welcoming special guests the SeVy Gospel Quartet (pronounced say-v) who are known for their family blend of tasty harmonies! Bring a song, a guitar, or a tasty snack to share!
