As we continue to hunker down this winter, we recognize how important it is to stay connected while staying physically distant. Newton Cultural Development introduces ‘Parlor Performances’ showcasing music from local musicians over 6 weeks from January 27 – March 3. Each performance in the series will be streamed on Wednesdays, 7:30 – 8:30pm EST on Newton Cultural Development’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/newtonculturaldevelopment.
Join us to stay connected this winter and support your local arts!
The series is organized and hosted by Newton Cultural Development, a department within Newton Parks, Recreation and Culture www.newtonma.gov/culture, and funded by Newton Community Pride, a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to build community and volunteerism through year round arts, cultural, and beautification programs for all to enjoy. www.newtoncommunitypride.org.
