Under brilliant blue skies, scores of guests swayed last Friday evening to the swooning sounds of Wanda Houston and the ultra-talented HBH+T band. Resplendent summer picnics of fresh blueberry pies and crisp farmer market salads were punctuated by mesmerizing drum solos, clarinet riffs, and Wanda's soaring vocals. Don't miss their captivating arrangement of the 1927 classic, "Bye, Bye Blackbird" and please be sure to swing in for our final outdoor concert on August 8 at 7 pm with The Lucky 3 swing jazz band whose infectious music you can sample here. If you'd like to gather your friends and bring a picnic you can reserve a table here.
While keeping a very close eye on the rising Covid rates, we are embracing the tri-state region's endless array of outdoor summer activities, including cabarets at the Sharon Playhouse and wine tasting at the Land of Nod winery. On-campus opportunities are equally inviting, including art classes with Jean Saliter and the Art Together workshops offered by Aging with Art and Soul whose goal is to activate memories, stimulate minds, strengthen manual dexterity and provide a creative journey as gratifying as the art produced.
