Live Music Event at the River Garden: SOS: Secret of the Seasons: A Climate Change “Co-Opera”

Live Music Event at the River Garden: SOS: Secret of the Seasons: A Climate Change “Co-Opera”

Climate Change “Co-opera”

Friday, October 27th at the River Garden –  7:00-8:30 PM

Strolling of the Heifers presents the original global climate change “co-opera,” SOS: Secret of the Seasons at the River Garden, 157 Main Street, Brattleboro.

Based on songs written by SIT Professor John Ungerleider and Bill Conley, the SOS co-opera is a reflective, participatory musical journey that engages the audience with the external and internal challenges that global climate change is bringing to our lives. 

Audience dialogue between thought provoking songs is designed to move participants from Fear and Denial to Hope and Action in response to the threat of global warming.

The title song asks about the local impact of climate change:  “Will it still feel like my home, when the leaves don’t turn to red and gold, and the ice doesn’t cover the fishin’ hole?” 

This special performance will conclude with a question and answer session with KC Golden, Senior Policy Advisor, Climate Solutions and Board Chair,

Suggested donation from $8 to $20 benefits Strolling of the Heifers’ year-round community initiatives.

FREE “SOS: Secret of the Seasons” CD with ticket!

Tickets available  at the River Garden 9-5 M-F and Sat. 12-4.
